After losing their home opener the day before, the Milford softball team came out a little sluggish against the visiting Blue raiders. After giving up runs in the first and third innings, Milford found themselves squarely behind the eight ball. Milford did not get the bats going until the fifth inning, but when they did the offensive display was impressive.
With senior Courtney Kohel on second, junior Macy Myers began the scoring with a two run homer to right field to knott the game up. “With Courtney on second I was just looking for a hit in that situation, it just turned out I got a really good hold of one and put it over the fence,” said Macy.
Once the scoring started the floodgates opened for the Buccaneers as the plated four runs in the fourth inning and another pair in the sixth. Freshman Bianca Salisbury went the distance in the 6-3 victory as the Buccaneers improved their record to 2-1 on the season. While it’s still early in the season, coach Sean Brennen is pleased at what he has seen so far
“Our goal is always to get just a bit better every time we hit the diamond and so far we have been doing that,” Brennen commented. “It’s early and we have a long way to go but the potential for a solid season is there.”
