Milford girls dominate Group 7

Staff Report

Brenna Campbell and Maria Arnot combined to score all 12 of Milford’s goals and also had seven assists as the Wildcats’ girls soccer team dominated the Group 7 bracket of The Daily Star Hall of Fame Cup this past weekend.

Milford beat New Lebanon, 6-1, on Sunday, a day after defeating Hamilton by the same score at the National Soccer Hall of Fame Campus.

"I’m a very demanding coach and I have high expectations," Milford coach Lorin Campbell said. "We played more defense in the first 30 minutes (Sunday) than I would have liked to, but when we get going offensively, it’s just incredible." Milford (4-0) led, 5-1, against New Lebanon at halftime Sunday. Arnot opened the scoring 11 minutes, 57 seconds into play, converting an assist from Campbell. Nine minutes later, Campbell scored off an assist from Arnot, who scored off an assist from Julia Brennan nine minutes after that.

Campbell scored 30 seconds apart late in the half _ both off Arnot assists _ to make it 5-1.

Campbell finished with four goals and two assists. The reigning Daily Star Player of the Year has 13 goals through four games this season. Arnot, a varsity teammate of Campbell’s since the eighth grade, had two goals and four assists.

In the victory over Hamilton, Campbell had three goals and two assists, and Arnot had three goals.

"Like I said, the score is deceiving," Lorin Campbell said. "(Hamilton) was a very athletic and fast team. We actually played better Saturday than we did (Sunday). Hamilton was a team that lived and died by the offsides trap. With an experienced team like ours, it just doesn’t work."

Defending Section Four Class D champion Milford plays host to Cherry Valley-Springfield on Tuesday.

Worcester’s girls also played in Group 7 and lost both of their games. New Lebanon beat the Wolverines, 3-0, on Saturday and Hamilton won, 3-0, on Sunday. No other information was available.
