Playoff Position at Stake for MHS Football

Milford High heads into homecoming weekend this Friday night against Foxboro needing a win to secure a top-four spot in the upcoming playoff field, and hoping to bounce back after a pair of disappointing losses.
After being on the wrong end of a 35-0 decision at Canton, the Scarlet Hawks let red zone opportunities slip by them last weekend in a 14-10 setback against Stoughton.
"Getting back to the playoffs would be huge, that was one of our goals going into the season," said MHS head coach Anthony Vizakis. "I think the kids have put in the time and they want it. Once you're in the bracket, it's like a whole new season, you start fresh."
Milford enters this weekend's game 3-3 overall and looking for a win to finish above .500 before the schedule flips over to the tournament.
"It all comes down to execution," Vizakis said, looking ahead to Foxboro. "We have a good game plan, he kids are confident in it, but they have to go out and do it."
A win this weekend and more victories come playoff time will be determined by the "little things," Vizakis said. The coaching staff has placed an added emphasis on not dropping passes, running proper routes and the things Vizakis says separate good teams from teams with championship aspirations.
Despite last week's loss, several Scarlet Hawks stood out on both sides of the ball. Luke Rosa ran the ball for Milford and also led the team on tackles on the defensive side. Dom Schofield was "dominant" on the offensive and defensive lines, his coach said, and Carter Scudo was another strong two-way player.
Vizakis was also pleased with the way his team was able to bounce back and come close to knocking off Stoughton after the lopsided result the week before.
"That was tough, Canton is a great team and turnovers and penalties were the headline of the game for us," Vizakis said. "I thought we responded really well last week. The kids were fired up and they played with great effort."
Another strong effort will be needed Friday night against the Warriors, who are also 3-3 and tied with Milford in the Hockomock League's Davenport Division.
"Foxboro is athletic and they are big up front," Vizakis said. "This is homecoming, it's a big week for the seniors, the team, and the school."
