MHS Boys Soccer Rolls in First Tourney Tilt

After an unbeaten regular season,
the Milford High boys' soccer team started the postseason off on a high note with a 6-0 win over Catholic Memorial on November 4 in the sectional tournament's opening round.
But the Scarlet Hawks were not dominant at the start, head coach Brian Edwards said. "We came out of the gate a little nervy, we were anxious, you could tell. Catholic Memorial out played us for the first 12 minutes or so."
Edwards called a timeout to settle his team. The Hawks took control in decisive fashion. Over the next 28 minutes, Milford scored six goals, and packed in a solid defensive effort in the second half to make sure the margin would never be threatened.
"Just about everybody was able to
get into the game, which is great, it was a good team effort," Edwards said, "a good start to the playoffs."
Lucas Da Silva, Jordan Borges, Eduardo Castro, Pedro Araujo and Joao Pedro Da Silva also helped the Hawks attack during the season's first half run. When the offensive firepower gave way to solid, smart defensive play, center back Chris Tocci became a focal point. "He is having an incredible season for us," Edwards said.
MHS saw strong performances out of freshman Gabriell Godoy and senior holding midfielder Carlos Terrinha, Edwards said. The Scarlet Hawks also had the benefit of a raucous home crowd.
"It was a really, really fun atmosphere," Edwards said. "A lot of people came out to support the guys, from students to parents to teachers and administrators."
After not playing for a week leading into the tournament, the 15-0-2 Hawks had to turn things around quickly for a second round matchup against Dartmouth, scheduled for November 6.
Edwards said his team should be ready to go moving ahead in the tournament. The combination of a relatively inexperienced team in tournament play, and having not played a crucial game in a while, probably lead to the shaky start on Monday. Milford wrapped up the Hockomock League title early in
the season, and was left playing for seeding in the tournament the rest of the way.
The Hawks ended up as the number two seed, trailing only Nauset. "Sometimes it's better not to be as high up, as far as having a path in the tournament," Edwards said. "But no matter what, we are playing well."
