Zach Rego and Henry Blynn each scored three goals while Matt Walters had two goals and four assists as host Haverford School defeated Penn Charter, 15-11, to clinch an undefeated season in the Inter-Ac League.

The Fords, ranked No. 1 in every national poll, improved to 19-0 and went 8-0 in a league considered to be one of the best in the country.

“This means so much to this group,” said Walters, whose team shared the crown the past two years with Malvern Prep. “Coach (John) Nostrant said that this was the second time ever that a Haverford team put together an undefeated Inter-Ac schedule to win the title.”

The Fords bolted to an 8-2 halftime pad and 13-5 after three periods. Gavin McBride had two goals and two assists and five others scored once.

Tyler White had five goals and an assist for the Quakers (9-10, 1-6), while Joey Sankey had three goals and three assists.

After a little bit of a slow start offensively, the Fords began to click.

“We struggled a bit trying to make up for not having one of our best attackman, Carl Walrath,” said senior Nate Volpert, who scored once. “But as the game went on we pulled it together and figured out how to get the offense working.”

‘We played unselfishly,” added Walters. “I think we didn’t have very many unassisted goals, and the ones that were came right off a ground-ball.”
