Milford Legion started off the 2014 season with former assistant coach Steven DiVitto taking over as the new head coach. Milford Post 59 was fresh off a state tournament title in 2013 and had high hopes heading into the 2014 season. Milford struggled throughout the first half of the season and was at a 7 and 7 record with only 10 games left to go, it seemed unlikely Milford was going to be able to turn it around. Milford reached a new low point when they dropped a 14-4 mercy-ruled game to Northboro on July 4th.

West Main & School Closer To Completion

NSTAR's crews were on site today conducting some of the necessary work which will bring the construction at the intersection of School and West Main Streets closer to completion. NSTAR's crews estimate that it will take them 8-10 days to relocate all their wires from the old poles to the new poles. Comcast and Verizon can relocate their wires once NSTAR's work is complete. ​The final step will be for the Town's contractor to widen the pavement and ​restripe the lines.
