The girls varsity soccer team is ready for the playoffs after a long hard-fought season. They have waited all season long and now there are only three games left. With a 4-4-1 record, the team needs to run the table on the next three games to hopefully win the division and enter the playoffs as the number one seed. Their last game against the number one team, Bethpage, was the most electrifying contest of the season. Goalie Michele Kornblau and sweeper Stephanie Holzer kept the potent Bethpage offense in check for the first 80 minutes. Yet, during these 80 minutes the Port team failed to score either. The game thus went to overtime. After no scoring in the first overtime, Danielle Gil connected a header in the box on a Sam Moskowitz cross with 23 seconds left in the game to win it for Port. Already playing good soccer against tough opponents in Division IV, the team has fared very well. Seaford, Bethpage, Lawrence and West Hempstead are just some of the tough competition the girls are up against. "We should definitely make the playoffs. We have the right people who want to win," said Stephanie Holzer. The team is coached by Mrs. Joannon and their assistant coach is Laura O'Brien. With no freshmen on the squad, the team consists of veteran, intelligent players. Led by all-county goalie Michele Kornblau and the team play of Marla Diakow and Jen Kolodny, the team has many exciting players. The playoffs begin at the end of the month, and support is always appreciated. The team has three games left and after an exciting game against Bethpage, the girls have something to build on for the future.
