  It was all there for the taking this past Friday night as the Lady Bucs tipped off against Henlopen South rival Woodbridge this past Friday. A victory would all but assure Milford their second consecutive South title. A loss however would put both teams into a first place tie with Milford still having three division games remaining.

From the start Milford looked one step behind the visiting Blue Riders. With Woodbridge using a box and one zone, Milford had difficulty penetrating. This was due in large part due to the presence of Woodbridge junior Altia Anderson. While the Milford defense looked to hold its own, the offense never seemed to click. Trying to work the ball down low to senior Xitali Roman, Milford found the treading difficult. Anderson took control of the paint and never relinquished it. When Milford attempted to penetrate, Anderson was always there either blocking or altering shots.

By the time the first quarter came to a close Milford was on the wrong end of a 12-2 score. It was a deficit that Milford would never be able to narrow. As the game went on, Milford would shift their offensive focus to perimeter shooting and would fair no better. The result at the end of the evening would be a 45-27 defeat that would drop the Milford record to 9-5 (7-1). With Woodbridge sitting at 11-3 (8-1), Milford may need to win out to force a one game playoff for the South title.
