The Milford Indians are going into their first playoff game tomorrow as they take on the Fairfield Mustangs. The Fairfield hockey team consists of both the Fairfield Ludlowe and Fairfield Warde High Schools. In the regular season the Milford Indians lost a close battle with Fairfield with a score of 1-0. “We have a good shot against them,” stated Sean Rowland, “If we can score goals we are going to win this game.” Fairfield has proved to be a great team, however Milford has improved with Gobany coming off a wrist injury halfway through the season the team is more ready to compete. Milford has proved they can be a contender. They are in the same spot they were last year as the 11 seeded team. The team made a deep run into the playoffs last year making it to the semi- finals at Ingalls Rink. Last year was intense for the Indians. There is no denying that the game vs. Branford last year was the most electric game after filling up a quarter of the stands with students and completing the upset over Branford. “We need people to come to this game,” stated Jonathan Depascale “The crowd at the game is so important because it can get in the other team’s head.” The Milford Indians will take on Fairfield at Wonderland of Ice in Bridgeport at 7:00pm on Tuesday March 10th. All students are encouraged to attend.
