Girls Basketball Takes To Road For Non-Conference Action At Seton

Posted on: December 19, 2016

SETTING THE SCENE: Seeking an end to its current four-game losing streak, the Milford High School girls basketball team is back on court this week for just a single game when the Eagles visit Seton on Wednesday night. Milford enters the match-up on Cincinnati’s west side with a 2-5 record and trying to get back on track during a two-week break from Eastern Cincinnati Conference play.

 

A LOOK BACK: December 14 at Turpin: Turpin 35, Milford 32

THE SHORT STORY

The Eagles nearly overcame a nine-point deficit early in the fourth quarter before coming up just short at Turpin by a 35-32 score. A basket by Tori Gilman with 47 seconds left brought the Eagles within two but Kaitlyn Workman split a pair of free throws with 13 seconds left to put the hosts up three. Gilman’s game-tying three-pointer at the buzzer rimmed just off to end the game.
