Girls’ Basketball Struggles

By Chelsea Reynolds

A crucial game for the Milford High girls’ varsity basketball team came Jan. 24.
To keep alive a chance for the state tournament, the girls had to win against Caesar Rodney.

Even though senior Le’shay Coward didn’t start, the Bucs opened with a 16-7 run in the first quarter and led until the third quarter. A change in defensive strategy from their usual man-man defense to a 3-2 zone proved to be very effective during the game.

During the fourth quarter, the Lady Bucs started to fall short when Xitlali Roman, Myleiris Vazquez and Jalyn Powell received their fourth fouls. Down seven and forced to foul the stalling CR team, the Bucs had little time to regain the lead.

In the end, the Bucs lost a close game, 45- 36. Diamond Turner, playing center, took advantage of CR’s size disadvantage to lead Milford with 18 points.

“I did what I had to do to try to help my team out by scoring when I could,” said Turner.
Coward said that the one thing that was going through her mind during the game was “we need to win the game.”

“Even though we didn’t win against CR, if we think we can get into the playoffs, then we just might,” said Young.
