MPS struggles to find net

Porter's took a while to get going after the long bus ride to Hopkins.  Hopkins scored in the first few minutes but Porter's was able to respond, tying the game up with 11 minutes left in the first half.  Audrey McMillan ('20) sent a beautiful long pass up to Mel Belenardo, who was able to take a quick shot before the goalie was in position.  Hopkins took the lead back with 7 minutes left in the half unfortunately, and Porter's had to regroup for the second half.  Despite some position changes on the field, and several penalty corners in the 2nd half, Porter's struggled to score.  By the end of the game, the defense and midfield struggled to keep Hopkins' quick forwards out of the circle, and unfortunately one of them found the goal with a minute left into the 2nd half to secure the win.  Goalie Kami Vigilant ended the game with 13 saves.
