• The Short Story: Haverford held off a late charge by the Johns Hopkins field hockey as the Fords beat the host Blue Jays, 1-0, on Friday night at Homewood Field. The start time was delayed an hour due to the transportation difficulties of the Fords.
How it Happened
• Paige Carson scored her team-leading seventh goal of the season just 7:46 into the game. Stephanie Terrell took a shot from the top of the circle that junior Greta Helvie stopped. Carson collected the rebound behind Helvie and slipped a shot inside the goal to put the Fords on top.
• Junior Clare Kavanagh kept the score at 1-0 when she made a defensive save on a shot by Paige Powell with six minutes to play.
• Hopkins then pulled Helvie with 4:58 to play and junior Amy Hallowell went in as the kicking back. With the extra attacker, the Blue Jays got four shots in the final three minutes but were unable to get the equalizer.
What it Means
