In its first game of the season, Port defeated Plainview JFK in an overtime thriller 53-46. In the Lady Vikings Tip-Off Tournament, the team defeated Division 66-46 and went on to defeat Sewanhaka 57-55 in the final game on a last second shot by freshman Michelle Kornblau. Sarah Walsh was named MVP and Lisa Vogeley was named to the All Tournament team. Port traveled to Roslyn to defeat the Bulldogs, 59-50.

In the Manhasset Tournament, last minute heroics were on tap again as the game with Manhasset went down to the wire. All Tournament team selection Lisa Vogeley hit the go ahead jumpshot in the key to put Port ahead with 32 seconds remaining. Deirdre O'Connor hit a three point shot to bring Port within one before Vogeley hit her shot. With a defensive stop, highlighted by Aly English's defense, Sarah Walsh was fouled with 12 seconds left and hit two free throws to give Port the three point margin. Port played stellar defense in the remaining 12 seconds to hold Manhasset to no shot. "It was probably the best 12 seconds of team defense. It was intense and we came out with the victory. It's a great statement to our team." said Coach Joannon. Sarah Walsh was named MVP of the tournament while having a career high 30 points in the final game.

The young and now game tested Lady Vikings open their league season this week.
