Miss Porter's School
Tie 2-2
The sun came out on this unseasonable October afternoon, and so did the Taft lady rhinos, who tackled the previously 7-0 Miss Porter’s School. The Taft women controlled most of the first half, despite a Porter’s goal at 13’ to the upper left corner of the net. Just before the halftime whistle, goalie Esmée made a beautiful diving save to her right side to hold the 1-0 score. Taft came out of the gate at full speed at the top of half two, with Faith Graziano ‘24 sending the Rhinos’ first goal of the game to the back of the net on a corner kick at the nine minute mark. On a free kick by Graziano at 28 minutes, Alessia Schettino ‘24 scored the second goal for Taft, assisted by Renata Mercedes ‘25. Unfortunately, the Porter's squad responded quickly a minute later. The coaching staff is proud of the lady Rhinos for playing their game until the very end, working as a team, and securing a tie to break that perfect record for Miss Porter’s. Future competition — watch out!
