The Milford girls’ basketball team has a big week ahead of them. While they travel to Polytech on Wednesday, the real big game for them will be on Friday. That is the night that Milford will travel to Lake Forest High school, the only team between Milford 15-2 (10-0 South) and the Division title. A win against the Lady Spartans and the Henlopen South title is theirs. It is a goal that coach Leona White began at the start of the season.

“There is no doubt about it, we want to win the south. I think we have the girls that can get it done.” White stated. Even if Milford would suffer a loss, the South will still be theirs for the taking, if they can defeat Delmar as they host them on senior night next Tuesday at 6:15.

No matter what, Milford is sure to be a tournament team with aspirations of giving a solid showing. If this past week is any indication, Milford just might have what it takes to make that happen. On Monday Milford hosted 12-4 Sussex Central. While not a divisional game it was one that the Bucs wanted. Milford played tough the first quarter, they played tight and made several key mistakes as they lost 62-35. “That was probably our worst game of the season, we just didn’t have it.” White stated.

The following night Milford had even bigger fish to fry, as they hosted another 12-4 team Smyrna. Playing such a tough team following such a bad loss, all signs pointed to a tough night for Milford. The team responded well and produced a somewhat surprising 55-50 victory. It was a win that coach White thought summed up her team.

“Our girls won’t quit. Even if they make mistakes, they learn from it,” White said. “This shows how hard our girls are willing to work.” With big games ahead, White thinks that her team will be up to the challenge “We have a great group of players and wonderful team chemistry.” White concluded.
