Milford – Milford’s DenNare Horsey rushed for 161 yards on just 14 carries and scored a pair of touchdowns in the first half to lead the Buccaneers to a 35-0 over the visiting Concord Raiders.

Milford scored on their first possession on a 9 play 67 yard drive capped off by a six yard touchdown run by Horsey. Neyson Legros added the PAT kick as Milford took a 7-0 lead with 6:40 left in the first quarter.

“We are proud of the way DenNare ran tonight, that has been our talk with him to just get vertical and stay vertical. He did that tonight last week he was a little too shifty at times, but tonight it was one cut and go,” Milford head coach Jed Bell said.

Horsey found the endzone again just five minutes later as he slashed his way through the middle for a 17 yard touchdown run. The PAT kick was blocked as Milford extended their lead to 13-0.

Jahmar Austin struck again for the Bucs on an eight yard run just four and a half minutes into the second quarter on a three yard run. Horsey added the conversion run as Milford extended their lead to 21-0.

Tyjere Perry got the scoring started for Milford in the third quarter with his 11 yard run around the right end for a touchdown. Legros’ kick was good as Milford led 28-0.

Milford rounded out the scoring later in the third quarter when Jack Hudson rolled out and connected with Austin on a 16 yard touchdown pass giving the Bucs a 35-0 lead.

“I was really pleased at the way we played up front tonight. They were bigger, but us being a Wing-T team I think that benefits us at times,” Bell said.

Concord falls to 1-3 and returns home next Saturday where they will host Red Lion with a kickoff at 10:30 AM. Milford improves to 3-1 and will travel to Wilmington for a noon kickoff with St. Elizabeth for their last non-district game before opening play in Class AA District 3.

“It will be our last regular season Saturday noon game, we have had two already so I think we are ready for that and to take on a good St. Elizabeth team and then it’s back to our roots starting off ironically with Woodbridge,” Bell said.
