Haveford Baseball
Haverford (22-15) experienced a tough outing against No. 8 Johns Hopkins (30-9), culminating in a lopsided 27-5 defeat in the second round of the Centennial Conference baseball tournament. The game unfolded on Thursday afternoon at Babb Field in Baltimore, where the Blue Jays' dominant performance took center stage. 
The momentum swung decisively in Johns Hopkins' favor right from the start, fueled by a formidable first inning that set the tone for the game. Johns Hopkins pushed 14 runs across in the opening frame to put the game well out of reach. 
In the top of the second inning, Mauro DeCillis drew a crucial walk with the bases loaded, capitalizing on earlier contributions from Kyle Beach's double, Jonny Flieder's walk, and Matt Dahl's single that loaded the bases. 
The Fords added two more runs in the fifth inning and another pair in the seventh. Beach and Chuck Norton stood out with two-hit performances for Haverford. 
Sam Cohen took the loss for the Fords. 
Looking ahead, Haverford is set to resume action on Saturday at Babb Field. Their next challenge comes in the form of an elimination game against second-seeded Dickinson in the Centennial Conference tournament, with a 10 a.m. first pitch. The winner of this pivotal contest will advance to a late afternoon matchup, scheduled approximately 30 minutes after the 1:30 p.m. game between McDaniel and Johns Hopkins.
