Back To Front Page


The Chesterton boys soccer team’s defense of its state championship ended Saturday in a 2-0 loss to Northridge at the IHSAA Penn Regional.

“Our expectations were very high,” Chesterton coach Lucas Sabedra said. “We know we were going to get everyone’s best game. The best teams lose in soccer. If you look at the best teams in the world, they have a 60% winning percentage.”

For the Trojans, who were ranked No. 3 in the State, it was their first loss in two years (42 straight games).

“The fact that we haven’t lost a game in two years until now, it’s just not normal,” Sabedra said. ‘We can’t just assume we are going to win every single game. We wanted to win this one, and we needed to win this one, but it just didn’t happen. We were not the best team at this moment.”

Northridge too an early lead on a penalty kick 9:25 into the first half. With less than two minutes to play in the half, they added a second goal.

“We had our opportunities and shots on goal,” Sabedra said. “They really bunkered in and had four guys just glued to the back. We still had chances, they just didn’t happen for us today. That’s soccer.”

Chesterton finished the season 17-1-2 overall.
