Chesterton Boys Soccer wins third straight

Back To Front Page

The Chesterton boys soccer team took the field for the second straight game determined not to let Billy Biehl’s injury define its season.

The Trojans won their third straight game since Biehl suffered multiple facial fractures against Andrean last week with a 4-1 victory over Bishop Noll.

With a heavily-bandaged Biehl watching from the sidelines, the Trojans put on a goal-scoring show that likely made the junior proud.

“We’ve been telling everyone to step it up,” Chesterton keeper Caleb Gmyrek said. “We need everyone to step out of their comfort zone. We have three captains, but that doesn’t mean everyone can’t be a leader.”

Jason Garmany took a pass from Trent Weller and got the scoring started in the 7th minute. Sophomore Jameson Sensibaugh, moved to midfield because of Biehl’s injury, scored in the 15th minute to give the Trojans a 2-0 lead at halftime.

“Someone has to step up when it comes to the games,” Weller said. “There are more opportunities now and we need to take advantage of those.”

Chesterton’s offense took advantage of a driving wind in the first half and then the defense tightened in the second half when the Warriors had the wind. Bishop Noll scored in the 57th minute when Aaron Garza converted a penalty kick. Gmyrek was untested for much of the match and saved the only other shot that came his way.

Datin Ringas added his third goal of the season and his second off a penalty kick in the 68th minute. Weller added Chesterton’s last goal in the 72nd minute.

“That’s a good team and to only give up a penalty kick, we did very well defensively,” Chesterton coach James Sensibaugh said. “These guys believe in themselves. We’re progressing as we want to.”
