The Porter's Varsity Field Hockey team dominated the field against Cheshire Academy in their first game of the season.
Goal scoring started early in the game, with Melina Belenardo '20 knocking in a great shot off a pass from Cricket Barnes '19 seven minutes into the game. A second goal was scored by junior Rachel Hart when she got open for a long drive at the top of the circle.  The final two goals of the first half were notched by Clare Porter '19, with one tipped in off a pass from Audrey McMillan '20 and the other off a direct shot to the corner of the goal. 

The scoring continued in the second half with an early goal from Morgan Mastrangelo '19, and another a minute later by junior McMillan off an assist from Hart '20.  Mel Belenardo '20 tallied her 2nd goal of the match shortly afterwards and then Hart '20 knocked in 2 more goals to secure a hat-trick! The shutout was split by goalies Elizabeth Muller '19 and Kami Vigilant '20.
