Fresh off its first league championship since 1999, the Milford High boys' soccer team made a strong opening statement in the district tournament with a 3-1 victory over Bishop Feehan last Saturday night at MHS.
"It was a good game, we came out and had a strong start," said Milford head coach Brian Edwards. "They scored and that gave them a lot of momentum, but we were able to settle down at halftime and it was a good performance for us in the second half."
Milford scored the first two goals of the match, with Jordan Borges and Joao Vitor
Neiva finding the back of the net. After Bishop Feehan added a goal, scoring off a rebound following a free kick, Vitor Neiva notched his second goal of the game in the second half to give his team a cushion. "He had a big night for us," Edwards said of the junior.
The playoff win continues a strong campaign for the Scarlet Hawks. Milford beat Canton 3-2 late in the season to secure the Hockomock League's Davenport Division championship. Borges scored in that game to help the Hawks secure the title.
"Jordan has been playing really well," Edwards said. "He has turned it on. He had a big, big, big goal for us against Canton and he played an incredible game against Bishop Feehan."
Joao Boaventura has also been playing at a high level all season long, and Walisson de Oliveira capped off one of the most prolific scoring seasons the program has seen. The junior poured in 22 goals and added seven assists, earning Hockomock League MVP honors in the process. "He has been a beast," Edwards said. "He was quiet in the playoff game, but we knew teams would focus on trying to shut him down. All of those teams have their eyes on him, he did a good job facilitating."
The rapid-fire postseason was scheduled to continue for the Scarlet Hawks on Tuesday. Edwards said he was pleased to see the way his team came together after a disappointing 2-2 tie against Foxboro in the middle of October. The Hawks tied their next two games, playing progressively better in each, and then finished the regular season with two wins over Stoughton, the Canton win, and a non-league victory over Hopedale.
