Haverford stuns JHU women's soccer in title game

2-1 loss snaps Blue Jays' streak of 7 straight conference titles

Haverford netted the decisive goal in the 80th minute at Homewood Field on Sunday to claim a 2-1 win against the Johns Hopkins women's soccer team in the Centennial Conference championship game and end the Blue Jays' run of seven consecutive conference titles.

JHU (15-4-1) advanced to the NCAA Division III tournament and will host first- and second-round games. Haverford (14-3-2), which won its first conference title since 1995, will be a part of the field after earning the conference's automatic bid.

Junior Christina Convey got Johns Hopkins on the board in the seventh minute, and two other JHU shots hit the crossbar early in the game.

But Haverford got even in the 19th minute on a header by Phoebe Miller, and pulled ahead late on a score by Meg Boyer, who found the top corner of the net on a blast from 30 yards out.

The Blue Jays host Lancaster Bible (16-4) on Saturday in an NCAA tournament game. The winner will advance to face the winner of Virginia Wesleyan (18-1-1) or Rowan (12-3-1) on Sunday.
