Boys Junior Varsity Football scores late in 4th quarter to earn a 10-8 win over Milford; Godin kicks the go-ahead field goal

EAGLES: 10
MILFORD HIGH SCHOOL: 8

Last night, the JV Football culminated a 5-1 season by defeating Milford, 10-8.

In a game played in eerie foggy conditions, the Eagles scored their first touchdown on a run by sophomore running back Michael Mahaney.  

Late in the game, however, the Eagles found themselves trailing 8-7 and Milford had the ball with under 4 minutes to go.  But, the Lakeland Defense recovered a fumble deep in Mavericks territory, giving the Eagles an opportunity to take the lead.  Milford stopped the Eagles Offense inside the 10-yard line, forcing Lakeland to attempt a go-ahead field goal.  Sophomore Braxton Godin was up to the challenge (good snap, good hold), converting the FGA to put Lakeland in front.

With just over 2 minutes remaining, it was the Defense's turn again to stop any last-minute heroics by Milford.  On a 4th down play, Godin was the player in the right spot, intercepting a pass, thereby allowing the Eagles to take a knee and run out the clock.
