Miss Porter's Varsity Soccer welcomed Founders league opponents, Ethel Walker, to Kiki field on Saturday afternoon. The visiting team (11-4-1) was coming to Farmington in good form.
Midway through the first half Molly Andrews '22 played the ball off to Kyla Gallagher '20 who opened the scoring with an 18-yard drive. Porter's Soccer controlled the first half and came close to extending the lead, only good goalkeeping and the crossbar keep the score at 1-0 at the half. Sam Halligan '21 played a give and go with Gallagher '20 before hitting a half volley into the bottom corner to extend the lead. It was quickly 3-0 when Gallagher '20 pulled the ball back for Laura Gouvin '20 to chip the keeper from 12 yards out. Gallagher '20 then got her second of the game from 20 yards out before Abby Ray '23 sent an excellent pass to Taylor Hall '22 who found Halligan '21, the latter made it 5-0 from an accurate drive on the edge of the box. The 6th and final goal came in the 79th minute, Gallagher 23' completed her hat trick as she beat two defenders before calmly slowing home that was her 25th goal of the season!
Next up Porter's Soccer (13-0-1) plays Class A and Founders League opponents, Hotchkiss in what will be a very close contest.
