Porter's Field Hockey Secures Second Win

Nelle Andrews
After a shaky start and lots of midfield possession, the Porter's FH team took the lead over an energetic Kingswood-Oxford team off of goals from Mel Belenardo ('20) and Clare Porter ('19).  Early in the second half, KO had an offensive surge, tying the game 2-2 with 14 minutes left.  After a quick time-out, Porter's regrouped and regained the lead with 12 minutes remaining, when Mel Belenardo ('20) scored her second goal of the game off a pass from Clare Porter ('19).  With 4 minutes remaining, Belenardo found herself on a breakaway again and she sealed the lead with her 3rd goal of the game in a 1v1 with the goalie!  Although KO knocked in one final goal with seconds left on the clock, Porter's escaped with the win.  Rachel Hart ('20) recorded 2 assists, and goalies Elizabeth Muller (1st half, 2 saves) and Kami Vigilant (2nd half, 3 saves) shared the goal for the win.
