Porter's vs. Ethel Walker

Porter's Varsity Soccer made the short journey to Simsbury to take on Founders League opponents Ethel Walker on a wet and cold evening.  Playing their 4th game in 7 days the girls in green knew they had to stay focused and patient throughout.  Ethel Walker is always well organized and leaves everything on the field, and this contest was another example of that.
Only six minutes in Laura Gouvin '20 scored from a 20-yard free kick to settle the away team.  Walkers had a few shots from distance but Jenna Hall '20 dealt with them all quite comfortably.  Kyla Gallagher '20 had two well-worked attempts saved very well by the opponent’s keeper and Carlyn Kosienski '19 had two opportunities within 8 yards of the goal.  Porter's did a nice job of combining and attacking in numbers and even with 24 shots (16 on target) they could only find the single goal.  With that win Porter's Soccer finish 6-1-1 which means that they will have to wait until Wednesday evening to find out if they are the Founders League Champions.
Porter's Varsity Soccer (15-1-1) now travels to current Class C New England Champions MacDuffie (10-1) on Wednesday who has a deep and talented squad.  With only two games left of the regular season the team are aware of the opportunities ahead of them.
