Chris Goldberg is here at the Inter-Ac Invitational at Cabrini College. Top-seeded Haverford School (21-1) is playing second-0seeded Episcopal Academy (17-5) for the championship before a capacity crowd of over 1,000 people.

The weather is perfect and the atmosphere is awesome as the Fords try to win their fiourth Inter-Ac Invitational crown in four years. They defeated EA two years ago in a thriller and last year edged Malvern Prep, 5-4, with two goals in the final 36 seconds to earn a national championship. This year the Fords are ranked No. 2 in the nation in every national poll and could win another national crown with a win and a Garden City loss down the road.
