CHS Boys Soccer blanks Merrillville

Back To Front Page


The Chesterton boys soccer team continued its winning ways with a 2-0 Duneland Athletic Conference victory over Merrillville on Wednesday night.

“It was a frustrating game for me as a coach, but we haven’t been scored on at home yet,” Chesterton coach Lucas Sabedra said. “I have high expectations for these guys and I am happy that they denied any goals for Merrillville.”

Zack Bowser opened the scoring with a first half laser from 35 yards away for a 1-0 lead after splitting a pair of defenders.

“Zack does an amazing job of beating defenders and creating shooting lanes or finding his teammates in space,” Sabedra said. “He took his shot and it was a tough one to stop.”

After halftime, the Trojans continued to dominate possession and took advantage of a Merrillville foul. Seth Conway drew the foul and then buried the free kick in the lower left corner of the net to set the final score.

“In the first half, we were having a tough time getting organized. We played a lot of straight forward through balls,” Sabedra said. “In the second half, we had more chances in front of the goal, one-on-one, but had trouble finding the back of the net.”

Peter Girzadas recorded one save in posting the shutout victory.

The Trojans return to the field on Monday when they host Munster. The JV game is scheduled for a 10 a.m. kickoff.
