Chesterton Boys Soccer outlasts Portage for win

Back To Front Page

It took overtime, but the Chesterton boys soccer team improved to 11-2 on the year and 4-2 in Duneland Athletic Conference play with a 2-1 overtime victory over Portage on Wednesday.

“It was a stagnant game with the ball in the air a lot,” Chesterton coach Jamie Sensibaugh said. “Not a lot of possession. We had good looks and opportunities, but we didn’t put dangerous balls on frame.”

Jameson Sensibaugh opened the scoring when he took a pass from John Ward for the game’s opening goal. Portage responded just before half to tie the game at 1-1.

After a scoreless second half, Travis Brooks connected with Trent Weller in the first overtime for the game-winner. Caleb Gmyrek recorded three saves for the Trojans.

“We are learning how to handle teams that get physical with us,” Sensibaugh said. “We didn’t respond well to that initially, but we kept our composure and played better as the night went on.”
