Girls Soccer Prepares For Tough Season

By Matt Short

The Milford High School varsity soccer girls have been hard at work preparing for their upcoming season.

“It’s going to be a tough season this year,” said Head Coach Keith Short.

Last year’s record of (10-4-1)marked the best in the program’s history. It was the first time that the Buccaneers made the bid to the Delaware Interscholastic Athletic Association State Tournament. However, their victory was short-lived after suffering a loss of 8-1 to the undefeated Caesar Rodney Riders(15-0).

“This year we’re going to defend well and we’re going to maintain possession of the ball for as long as we can,” said Short.

Some of the team players returning this year are goalie Brooke Hughes, defender Brittany Hughes and midfielder Stefanie Clendaniel. Also returning is Rebekah Yanacek, who after being sidelined due to an injury, managed to score a total of fifteen goals last year.

“The team doesn’t have many substitutes this year, which means that the girls need to be in better shape,” Short added.

The Bucs have been hard at work preparing for their upcoming games at home. Since the team has limited substitutes this year, keeping up with their conditioning is a major priority. The team has been hard at work exercising and practicing. In order to prevent injuries, the team has been doing a lot more stretching.

“This year we’ve been communicating a lot more and everyone’s been working really hard,” said defensive stopper Maria Valdez.

The Bucs have a scrimmage game against Mt. Pleasant High School on March 13. The game will be held at Milford High School at 4:00p.m. Afterwards, the team will have two more scrimmage games before facing off against Indian River in the season opener.

“Last year we were able to keep up with them and we performed well,” said defensive player Lindsay Winckoski.

The Buccaneers first game of the season will be on March 27, at 5:30p.m. The team will face off against Indian River at Milford High School.
