MHS Boys Soccer Nears Play-off Berth

As Milford's boys' soccer team makes the turn for home in its regular season schedule, it finds itself just a couple of wins away from a spot in the district tournament.
The Scarlet Hawks finished last weekend with a 5-3-3 overall record and sits in second place in the Mid Wach League. Still, head coach Jim Asam says he could get a bit more out of his team.
"We have had a few tough losses in games where we out-shot the other team" he said. "We have played well, but are prone to making a few costly errors. We need to finish, need to put the ball in the net, and need to have a bit more consistency."
Senior midfielder Gustavo Rocha has been able to find the net often so far this season, posting 10 goals and adding three assists through last weekend's games. Fellow senior Will Marcal has added eight goals and two assists. "They have been our leading scorers all season," said Asam. "They're both veteran players and they've really carried a lot of the offense so far."
Kevin O'Loughlin has started every game in goal, and has been helped on the defensive side of the field by Justin Asam, John O'Neil, and Dylan Rizzo. "Those guys have been a big part of the defense up to this point," said Asam.
Asam also credited the play of junior midfielder Lucas Eeaguier, who has come on strong over the past several games.
Milford recently picked up some points in the league with a 3-1 victory over North Middlesex and a tie against Nashoba, but the Hawks suffered a pair of 3-0 setbacks against Algonquin and Wachusett and a loss to Worcester North.
"We out-shot Wachusett 16-9 and I thought we dominated in some facets of the game, but we just need to finish," said Asam. "I think we could have beaten Wachusett or Worcester North if we brought our best game and have two extra wins right now."
Still, Milford entered a crucial week with a record about .500. The Scarlet Hawks played league matches this past week against Shrewsbury and Leominster. Asam sees the second run through the league schedule as a chance to improve and prepare for a likely spot in the tournament.
"I just want to see them continue to get better," he said. "Each game we get a bit better and more comfortable with each other. I think it's a good primer for what's to come."
