Championship fever in Milford goes beyond Remy title

(Continued)

If Milford has any weakness, it may be overconfidence, but Ward seems to understand that they haven’t met their goals yet.

“We have to remember why we are here, and that is to win championships,” he said. “We need to be a unit.”

On Saturday, the title was decided early. Milford outscored the Purple Devils 19-2 in the first quarter as Lang, Ward and Griffiths all had three-point shots and Griffiths added a dunk to cap the quarter.

All five starters sat the first half of the second quarter, but it didn’t help Franklin, which trailed 32-4 at halftime. The Purple Devils closed the gap slightly in the third quarter, but Milford’s first five played only sporadically in the second half.

“I’m pleased with our defense,” Milford coach Frank Spurchise told the Daily Star. “We’ve done very well in the first two games. We’ve allowed 16 points total in the first half in two games.

“Along with the defense, I’m pleased with the way we’re sharing the ball,” Spurchise said.

Derek Beers led Franklin with 13 points.

Ward had 17, Griffiths had 14 and Lang scored 10 for Milford (2-0), which hosts CV-S on Dec. 4.

Milford 52, Franklin 25
