Milford came back from the long break ready to play with energy and intensity, as did their opponent Walled Lake Northern, who carried a three-game winning streak into the holidays. Some unforced errors and a few missed fast break opportunities kept the Mavericks from taking control of the game in the first half. The girls played solid, disciplined defense and kept the game close for the whole duration, and tied for much of the second half after closing the gap in the third quarter. Milford’s starters ran into some foul trouble, however the bench stepped up and made some great plays that kept the team in the game. Foul trouble and free throws were big factors in this game; Northern shot 10-for-26 at the charity stripe while Milford went 3-for-7. The Knights of Walled Lake Northern outscored the Mavericks 7-4 in OT, and went home with a 26-23 victory. Leading the scoring for Milford was Kayla Leatch with 7 points, Rachel Maude with 6, and Sydney Pattinson also added 6 including two clutch free throws in overtime. Milford has a week to prepare for their next game, when they’ll host South Lyon on January 16 at 4PM.
