  With little margin remaining for error if Milford wanted to make a run at the Henlopen South title, they would need to win on the road at Woodbridge this past Friday.  After finishing the first half trailing 18-17, Milford took over in the third quarter, outscoring Woodbridge 18-6. While Woodbridge would attempt to rally, they were no match for the visiting Buccaneers, falling by a final score of 48-43.

The victory was Milford’s fourth in a row, improving their record to 9-6 (7-2).  Presently in a second place tie with Woodbridge, Milford will have to keep on winning and hope for some help if they would like to capture the South. In the meantime the Buccaneers have a real chance to make the tournament based on record. This young team has been improving all season and has become increasingly fun to watch. Following the Sussex Central game just a few weeks ago, coach Bob Spath shared that he thought the team was close. “We keep on getting better, by the end of the season we should be where we want to be,” Spath said. With just over a quarter of the season to go, things are really starting to get interesting.

Milford will host playoff contenders Smyrna 10-3 on Tuesday at 6:15. They will then travel to Indian River 7-8 Thursday at 6:15, before hosting a 10-4 Saint Marks team this Friday at 6:15.
