MHS Boys Basketball Earn Tournament Win


The Milford boys' basketball team advanced to the Central Mass. final four following a 67-60 opening round victory over Medfield as the Scarlet Hawks continue to play some of their best basketball at the end of the year.
"I think our success right now is about peaking at the right time," said head coach Paul Seaver. "We talked a lot in December and early January about continuing to improve and play our best basketball when it matters the most."
The Scarlet Hawks surged down the stretch, rattling off six straight wins to finish the regular season 12-8 overall. Milford earned the number five seed in the Division 2 Central Mass. bracket, and kept the momentum going against fourth-seeded Medfield last week.
"We jumped out to a 9-0 lead and then we just maintained it wire-to-wire,' Seaver said, noting his team kept the Warriors at arms-length throughout the course of the game.
Andrew Fraioli put together one of his best games of the season, scoring 19 points, pulling down 15 rebounds, and blocking seven Medfield shots. Junior Brendan White added 19 points of his own to go along with 10 rebounds. Shane Cosquette added 11 points to complete the trio in double figures for the Hawks. Senior forward Kayden Kelley also chipped in 10 rebounds to the winning cause.
Milford was scheduled to take on top-seeded Marlboro on Tuesday night. The Scarlet Hawks got the better of the Panthers in the tournament last season, but Marlboro comes in with an 18-3 record and led by 6-foot-9 center Chris Doherty. The winner of the semifinal matchup moves on to the Division 2 title game Saturday night at Worcester Polytechnic Institute against either Westboro or Shepherd Hill.
The Scarlet Hawks last made a trip to WPI for the district semifinals in 2013 under Hall of Fame head coach Steve Manguso. That squad went on to win the program's second district championship.
