Back To Front Page


The Chesterton girls soccer team opened its post-season in impressive fashion with a 12-0 victory over Merrillville in the opening round of the IHSAA Sectional at CHS on Tuesday.

“This was a game that was never in doubt,” Chesterton coach Ben Forgey said. “We played one set of 11 players for 40 minutes and completely switched out and played a different 11 in the second half. Both groups played well and it was nice to have some fun, spread minutes around and get out without any injuries.”

Goals scorers for the Trojans included Grace Bamber (2), Addy Joiner (2), Annalisa Hackett (2), Gina Geenen (2), Emily Richardson (2), Sophie DeRuntz and Molly Hadenfelt.

Assists were handed out by Joiner (3), Sydney Stott (2), DeRuntz (2), Emma Vetroczky, Geenen, Kaitlyn Kogl, Richardson and Hadenfelt.

Carley Balas played the first half in goal before giving way to the tandem of Addysun Arndt and Emma Pape in the second half.

The Trojans will play Hobart, a 2-1 winner over Michigan City, in the first semifinal beginning at 5 p.m. at CHS on Thursday. The other semifinal will match Valparaiso and Portage at 7 p.m.

The semifinal winners will meet for the Sectional title on Saturday at 2 p.m.
