Milford Boys LAX Weathers Tough Road Trip

The Milford High School boys lacrosse team started the season with five straight road games, winning one of the five and kicking off the 2019 campaign with a test that head coach Jacob Scordato hopes will pay dividends down the road.
"It was good for us, being on the road, having those trips, it was a good experience for us," Scordato said. "We are learning from our mistakes
in some of these games and we growing from them. we hope to put a couple more wins in the win column, hoping the home games will be a bit better."
Milford began the week 1-5, but with a plethora of home games ahead. Four of the Hawks' next five games will be in the friendly combines of the home campus. "We are looking forward to the home games," Scordato said. "Getting to the tournament is still our goal."
Several different players have stood out so far for MHS. Ryan Hazard is the team's top goal scorer through the first six games of the campaign. Brendan White has also been strong on the offensive end of the field and junior Danny Farrell has played well at long stick midfield. "He is playing hard, controlling the face-offs and getting a lot of ground balls," Scordato said.
Other players have excelled in big spots. Josh Ligor netted an overtime game winner for MHS in a 9-8 victory over Attleboro. Mike Demko has also stepped up as an attackman, Scordato said, and has been scoring more goals in recent contests. Both Ligor and Demko are seniors, and the leadership that group has provided has been instrumental for Milford so far.
"They have been showing the younger guys the way," Scordato said. "We are young guy heavy and the older guys are showing them the way, playing wall ball with them before and after practices and showing the ropes."
Scordato has been impressed by the leadership, but said in order to put a run together to get back on track toward making a tournament run, the Hawks need to clean up some of the "little things." "That's what kills us," the coach said. "Not getting ground balls, communication, turning the ball over, making silly turnovers, things like that."
After a home game against North Attleboro on Wednesday, the Scarlet Hawks are set to visit Sharon next Monday before a pair of Hockomock League home games against Stoughton and Over Ames.
