After a close, emotional loss on Friday, the Chesterton boys basketball team responded with a solid 62-43 non-conference victory at Hobart.

“Coming off an emotional game with Merrillville, in the second half, we finally calmed down and went on a run in the third quarter,” Chesterton coach Marc Urban said. “That gave us a big lift.”

The Trojans blew open a 29-21 halftime advantage by outscoring the Brickies 19-10 in the third period, including a 10-0 run to end the frame.

“Our gap is really small from being where we are today to getting to the next level and being one of the best teams in the area,” Urban said. “We have to rebound better and be better defensively possession to possession.”

Austin Peterson spearheaded the Trojan offense with an 18-point night that included nine third-quarter points.

“It just made sense when we had a size and skill advantage to throw it inside and score,” Urban said. “It’s as simple as basketball can be. We were able to kick it out and get open shots when we didn’t score.”

Chesterton hit on 24-of-43 shots (56 percent) from the field on the night, including 8-of-17 from 3-point range.

“It’s easier to shoot when the ball is coming from the basket out than it is when it’s coming to you on the perimeter from the left or right,” Urban said. “We have guys inside that can score and kick it back out.”

Ky Palombizio hit three triples and scored nine points in the victory, while Erik Ralph added eight points and Jake Wadding tallied seven.

Rounding out the scoring were Ray Yagelski (5 points), Harley Lohmeyer (5 points), Jack Eaton (5 points), Noah Mahoney (3 points) and Tyler Nelson (2 points).

“All of our guys come to practice and work hard,” Urban said. “We play a lot of guys, but we have a lot of guys that can play. We have to continue to develop everyone on the roster.”

The Trojan defense held Hobart to just 15-of-48 (31 percent) shooting from the field.

Chesterton returns to the court on Friday when they travel to LaPorte for a girls-boys doubleheader beginning at 5:30 p.m.

“We have to get ready for LaPorte,” Urban said. “That’ll be a tough test over there.”
