The Milford High School lacrosse team shut down St. Elizabeth's offense to win 8-0 Monday evening, going to 2-1 on the season.


After last year's three-win season, the Milford High School lacrosse team knew they'd need a big turnaround in order to have a winning 2009.

With the first week play finished, they're well on their way. They shut out the St. Elizabeth's Vikings 8-0 at home Monday evening for their second straight win, going to 2-1 overall.

"It's a good game to build on," Head Coach Tom Pickard said. "At this point, 2-1 is a very good position to be in."

Splitting his goalies' playing time, as he did last week, Pickard kept Matt Langford in for the entire game - and it paid off. He had a perfect day, blocking every shot St. Elizabeth's players sent his way.

He definitely made an impression on the opposing team. As they filed off the field, one Viking player remarked, "I didn't know they had Super-Goalie on their team."

Gary Wolfe led the offense with three goals, while Alex Bell and Mark Strickland had two each and Ryan Deeney added a goal and an assist.

"We controlled the ball well," Pickard said.

So far, the Bucs have outscored their opponents 32-22, with their one loss coming in a 11-10 nailbiter against Delmar. Their next game is at home against Cape Henlopen Wednesday afternoon.
