This season has been an up and down one for Milford field hockey. The young team has yet to demonstrate the consistency they will need, if they plan on making a run at a State tournament birth. This week saw Milford win a game they should have against Laurel on Tuesday, while losing one that they needed against Saint Mark’s.

The Tuesday win featured a pair of goals by emerging freshman Rajene Bowe and another from senior Hannah Stangl on their way to a 3-1 victory. Milford’s playoff chances took a big hit on Thursday however, as Saint Mark’s was able to record a 3-2 road victory. While Milford held a 1-0 advantage at the half, Saint Mark’ would score three unanswered goals to jump out to a 3-1 advantage. While Milford would get to within one, Saint Mark’s was just too much for Milford.

The loss dropped Milford’s record to 3-5 for the year. They will have a lot of work to do if they want to make the playoffs. “We just have to win games, we have to win them the same way we are going to play them, one at a time,” Coach Andrea Fleming commented. “The record does not indicate how hard these girls are working, and how much we are improving.”

Milford will host Indian River Tuesday at 4 pm, prior to traveling to Caesar Rodney on Thursday for a 4 pm start.
