Back to Front Page





The Chesterton boys soccer team picked up right where they left off in Duneland Athletic Conference play with a 9-0 victory over Michigan City on Wednesday night.

“Tough to start with a DAC opponent, but we handled it well,” Chesterton coach Jamie Sensibaugh said. “We’re the defending DAC champs and we got off to a good start in working toward that again.”

The Trojans got a pair of goals from Nick Barango, John Ward and Billy Biehl, while Kody Lobsiger, Jared O’Dell and Mason Farese all scored once.

“We came out hard, fast and furious,” Sensibaugh said. “We played with intensity and great hustle. Kept our composure well and played with good combinations up front.”

Ward (3), Barango, Biehl, Caleb Gmyrek and Kyle Kogler all dished out an assist in the victory.

“Ward had a great game and we know he’s capable of it, so that was nice to see,” Sensibaugh said. “Our defense getting the shut out is nice. We only gave up nine goals last year and we picked up where we left off.”

The Trojans return to the field on Saturday when they host West Lafayette at 10 a.m.
