The Haverford School took the top prize for the second year in a row at the annual Mad Hatters JV Lacrosse Tournament at Hatboro Horsham High School on Saturday.
In the first round the Fords beat Upper Dublin, 11-0. Round two pitted Haverford against rival St Joseph’s Prep with the Fords taking the battle, 10-4.
In the semifinals Haverford toppled Downingtown West, 8-2 setting the stage for a rematch against Conestoga in the finals. Conestoga won an earlier match up this year against Haverford in the Checking for Cancer tournament, 9-8.

Sophomore Goaltender Elliott Avis was outstanding all day making several great saves. The Fords were coached by Avery Cook, Foster Gilbert and Scott Ertle.
The team consisted of Kneeling: Ben Euler, Jake Hervada, Henry Crochiere, Mike Mazzola, Elliot Avis, Grant Ament, James Holston, Brandon Shima, Eli Tills, Tucker McBride, Connor Keating, Drew Supinski, Jeff Odiorne, Noah Lejman, Coach Foster Gilbert, Sam Denious, Jack Appicciafuoco, Colin Moran, Chris Sabia, Phil Poquie, Brenden Jacob, Brenden Burke, Angelo Brutico, Logan Atkins, Corey Richards, and Shane McBride.
