Porter's played Litchfield Hills this past Saturday and it was a battle! The teams were goal for goal most of the game, neither team letting up. The girls worked hard to improve on things from the Choate game and were much more confident and aggressive on the field. While the game did not end in favor of Porter's, the coaches were very proud of the improvements we saw on the field. The player of the game was Kyla Gallagher '20 for her tireless energy all over the field.
Yesterday, the JV Lacrosse team faced a large and talented Williston Northampton team. With only 1 sub, our girls played their absolute hearts out. Unfortunately, we were not able to lock down the win due to two late goals. We started the game down 2 goals but relentlessly fought our way back and held the lead for the majority of the game. Ava Forand had an excellent game, coming up with 14 saves. Alexia Cusano '20, Ruby Eisler '21, and Helen LaPointe '22 were dynamic on the draw and worked tirelessly in the midfield. Our player of the game was Julia Luppino '21, who is only on her 3rd week of playing lacrosse but is a forced to be reckoned with defensively. We look forward to a well-deserved break and will face Pomfret next Saturday, April 20th.
Porter's played a well-fought game against Choate for their season opener. While they ultimately did not pull off the win, the JV Lacrosse team had a lot to be proud of. With 5 out of our 13 players being new to lacrosse, there was a big learning curve in this game. Mel Belanardo '20 an Alexia Cusano '20 both had 2 goals while Lauren Abrahams '21 added 1. Ava Forand '21 had her JV Lacrosse debut recording 6 saves on the day. The player of the game was Marah Deckers '22, for taking the coaches notes during half time and executing them perfectly during the second half.
