The Fords lost in the opening round of the Districts.
The Haverford Girls Softball team lost to Avon Grove 5 to 4 at Monday’s District One Class AAAA opening-round game. The loss for the Central League co-champion Fords may be disappointing, but the Delco Times writes: Haverford will probably have its chances to see Avon Grove down the road, though. The Red Devils will continue their season and the Fords won’t, but Haverford’s got a good, young nucleus to work with that will help it not only contend for future Central League championships, but an even bigger prize, like perhaps a District One title and more.
