Porter's fights to the end

The Porter's field hockey team put up a strong fight against the Pelicans of Loomis Chaffee.  Our corner defensive unit worked hard all week to improve positioning and communication and it paid off in this match.  Loomis dominated offensively, but only one goal went in off a corner, (after 16 corner calls), and our defense did a nice job working as a unit in these numbers down scenarios.  Despite being down 5 goals, Porter's never stopped challenging the Loomis defense, and with less than 4 minutes remaining in the game, Mel Belenardo ('20) knocked in a shot off a pass from midfielder Tyler Gaston ('23) at the top of the circle.  Goalies Nia Carroll ('22) and Kami Vigilant ('20) split time in the net, with Nia recording 13 saves and Kami recording 6 saves.
