girls soccer team got a goal from Ashlee Bakaitis and made it stand up as
they picked up a 1-0 Duneland Athletic Conference victory over Lake Central
on Tuesday night.
“It wasn’t our best
performance, but we did enough things right that we came out with the
victory,” Chesterton coach Ben Forgey said. “Usually we can count on our
attack to get goals. Tonight we only got one. We just didn’t make the final
LC put tremendous
pressure on the Trojans in the final 15 minutes of the game, but the defense
and goalkeeper Carley Balas made every play.
“Carley had a lot
to do in the final 15 minutes,” Forgey said. “Lake Central had several free
kicks and corner kicks that were dangerous. To our credit, our defenders won
everything and when they didn’t, Carley did.”
The Trojans return
to the field on Thursday when they travel to Kankakee Valley. The JV game is
set for a 5 p.m. start.
