On Tuesday afternoon, it was all there for the taking. The Conference and Division titles would have been theirs with a victory over visiting Delmar. Milford never had a chance, as the Wildcats jumped out to a six run lead in the top of the first inning. Delmar would add one in the second, and three in the third innings. While Milford would work their way back into the game, they never seriously threatened on their way to the 10-6 defeat.

The loss put Milford on the hot seat, with the slim possibility of missing the tournament if they lost the last game of the season, Thursday at Red Lion Christian Academy. The Buccaneers responded with a 13-1 victory, with senior Philip Berry on the mound. Berry also continued his hot hitting, with three hits and an RBI in the game. With the victory, Milford assured themselves of a playoff spot.

The news got better for Milford, as Dover dropped their final game of the year against Polytech. The loss by Dover created a four way tie atop the Henlopen North. With Milford holding all the tie-breakers, the crown was theirs.

The loss earlier in the week cost Milford dearly however, they now will have to travel north on Tuesday to battle Tower Hill. Milford beat The Hillers earlier in the season 10-5, but so much has passed since then and that game will be of little relevance. The game will start at 4 pm.
