Miss Porter's Varsity Soccer welcomed last year's Class A quarter-finalists and Founders league opponents, Taft to a wet Kiki Field.
Both teams battled well in the opening stages with Taft looking to create 1 v 1 situation out wide and support their lone forward. 12 minutes in Kyla Gallagher '20 scored her 16th goal of the season when she ran onto a Sam Halligan '21 pass. With only 8 minutes left in the half Laura Gouvin '20 threaded Halligan '21 through to score the second goal of the game. With only three minutes left in the half, the impressive Ana Bartkiewicz '20 won an important 50-50 challenge and found Halligan '21, she released Gallagher '20 who played an excellent pass to Adi Botet '23 who swung in an inviting cross that found the back of the net through a Taft defender. The half time score remained 3-0. The girls in green took only 5 minutes to make it 4-0 when Halligan '21 played Gallagher '20 through on goal. Jenna Hall '20 pulled off two very good saves, one which was held very well in such difficult conditions to preserve the shutout. With 5 minutes remaining, Gallagher '20 found Halligan '21 who scored her second of the game to complete the scoring.
Next up Porter's Soccer (8-0-1) travels to Kent for a Class A game.
