This Week in Milford

January 15, 2016

This means war

Just a list of issues today so lets get started – P1 has an obvious cheap shot by Jadine in retaliation for the previous shenanigans, but its described in P2. I dont know what the big deal is about having to lead all the time; many talented teams will coast through most of a game and then step on it when they need to later to get the win. So who cares what the current margin is; these games take a week to play anyway.  Why would retaliating necessarily spur a rally? You beat other teams by rebounding and playing defense. The offense will come as a result of these 2 actions. Stop the other team from scoring and you’ll have to score less. Control  the boards and you’ll minimize their opportunities and push the ball to your end for better shots.  So simple.

P2 has a technical foul shot at what looks like either midcourt or the 3-point line. The Milford player is ok where she is, but whats the other player doing with her arm? So the court drawing is a mess. Then P3 has Kenzies neighbor covering her eyes and the other one taking a siesta with her hands behind her head.  Nice coaching discipline Mimi. We’ll see how Kenzie does in her debut but if things get ugly I wont be shocked.



  1. Panel 1, Jadine is # 9…. only in Milford can HS players have numbers > 5…
    Enter Kenzie, stage right, fists clenched ready for action… she knows Mimi wants a “goon” as they say in hockey. some call it enforcer…
    I anticipate those hussies from Cherry Creek will get their comeuppance–bodies go flying, getting the snot literally beat out of them…

  2. “check in” must be secret Milford code for: Get in there and foul out as fast you possibly can. And blood. Make sure there’s real actual blood.

  3. Good to see Steve Luhm is still on the job. Just look at that floor shine!

    … No, wait, wait! Don’t look at it directly! You’ll go blind.

  4. Kenzie has already come close to putting her own teammates in the hospital in low pressure 5v5 drills, now she has her fists clenched and is levitating a half inch off the bench in anticipation. And I am suddenly remembering our head coach (when I was a soccer assistant) telling a bench player “Their number 21 needs to see this match from a different perspective. Take him down hard and make sure he knows why.”

  5. And I suspect that as a high level rugby player, Kenzie is adept at the “professional foul,” the one that causes the opponent to loser her temper, retaliate directly in front of the referee, and get ejected.

  6. […] and the elfin ref didn’t call any technicals on Milford for illegal unifrom numbers (neither Jadine’s #9 nor whoever’s #7). We can joke about what Max Bacon will offer to “cure” […]
