Haverford School defenseman Connor Bailey and the Fords improved to 21-0 and advanced to the Inter-Ac Invitational semifinals Wednesday

The win boosted the top-seeded Fords (21-0) into the semifinals Saturday against Lawrenceville School (N.J.) at Cabrini College at 5 p.m. Lawrenceville toppled Bullis School (Md.), 9-5, today at Cabrini.

Hill School (8-8) played a standout first period and kept the game tied until late in the stanza. The Fords then erupted for four goals and led, 5-2, after the period.

“The offense did a really good job of moving the ball today, getting open against their zone, and taking shots,” said Walrath. “We really placed the ball and took our time in the offensive zone.”

Brendan McGrath and Grove Stewart each scored twice for Haverford School while Will Gural had a goal and an assist and won 8 of 11 face-offs. Joe McCallion won 9 of 11 face-offs.
