Girls Water Polo To Host Weekend Invitational; Both Squads Headed To Mason Tuesday

Posted on: August 31, 2018

SETTING THE SCENE: The Milford High School girls water polo team will get its first taste of home action when they host the Milford Invitational this weekend. Junior varsity action is set for Friday, before a full day of varsity competition on Saturday. Following the weekend, both teams are back in the pool next Tuesday (Sept. 4) at Mason.

 

THE BOYS REPORT: The Eagles are off to a 2-6 start early in the season after winning one of three at last weekend’s Mason Invitational. First up at Mason was a battle with Upper Arlington, yearly one of Ohio’s best teams, with the Eagles falling 16-2. Milford bounced back in a nail biter, edging Thomas Worthington 10-9, before wrapping up with a 7-5 defeat to the host Comets. Junior goalie Tyler Blimline was Milford’s top performer of the weekend, totaling 20 blocks in three matches.

 

THE GIRLS REPORT: Last weekend took the girls team to the Princeton Invitational for four contests. Friday produced defeats to Upper Arlington (10-5) and Napoleon (9-4), before the Eagles got in the win column with an 8-6 win over Thomas Worthington on Saturday. Tournament play ended with a close 7-4 setback to Worthington Kilbourne. Senior Ellen Victory enjoyed a great weekend, scoring a team-high nine goals and adding two assists. The girls squad currently holds a record of 3-5.
