With players arriving late to the tournament due to the wrath of mother nature, Haverford started out with just two subs, which eventually grew to four. They nabbed their first win of the day over Seneca, scoring a lot of goals in transition and in thanks to the coaching of Johnny Mouradian.
Next, the Fords found themselves in a heavy contest with the Jr Wings, eventually grabbing the W.
"These guys are playing great!" said Coach Mouradian. "And have shown that they can run on the floor too."
Heading into the championship game, Haverford met Seneca again. It as another back and forth drama. As it came down to the wire, Haverford snuck in a worm burner to take a one goal lead. With 7 seconds left, the Golden Eagles waited to strike and tallied the late tying goal with just one second left in regulation.
Heading into Braveheart, the Fords snagged the opening draw and settled up on O. Off a down pick, Dox Aitken curled with the ball and got to the inside of his man and scored the game winning goal.
"It was a great opportunity to get to play in the AILA Heritage Cup. It allowed outdoor players to think, read and react and work more as a team rather than individual effort," said Aitken.
