Porter's FH Wins Final Game

The Porter's Field Hockey team was filled with energy for their Senior Day game against Millbrook. Ball possession went back and forth for the first 10 minutes of the game and it took Porter's a little while to get into a groove. Shortly after she entered the game, Mel Belenardo ('20) tipped in a pass from senior Merritt Hall ('19) off a breakaway to get Porter's on the board. Millbrook stepped up their offensive pressure for the remainder of the half and Porter's saw strong defense from both goalkeepers - Elizabeth Muller ('19), who had started the game, was knocked down by an out of control forward from Millbrook. Muller was shaken up and came off the field to recover. Kami Vigilant ('20), replaced Muller in goal and she went on to make several vital saves to keep Porter's in the match (6 saves total). Muller went back into the game in the 2nd half and she ended her final game with 10 saves. The second half of the game was more offensive for Porter's, with great play from seniors Gabe Brewer, Clare Porter, Merritt Hall, and Morgan Mastrangelo on the forward line. 9 minutes into the second half, Mel Belenardo ('20) scored her 2nd goal of the game off a pass from Gabe Brewer ('19). The 3rd and final goal of the game was knocked in by Gabe Brewer ('20) off a pass from Rachel Hart ('19). Porter's saw outstanding play from defenders Cricket Barnes ('19), Grace Bergin ('19), McKenna Cutler ('19), Natalie Brennan ('20), and Rachel Hart ('20). Special thanks to our seniors for leading the team to a victory in their final game! Congratulations to seniors Grace Bergin, Cricket Barnes, Gabe Brewer (co-captain), McKenna Cutler (co-captain), Merritt Hall, Elizabeth Muller, Morgan Mastrangelo, and Clare Porter (co-captain).
