Back to Front Page





The Chesterton boys soccer team peppered West Lafayette goalkeeper Gauray Mittal for 80 minutes and improved to 2-0 on the year with a 5-0 victory on Saturday.

“The team played well and connected well in the final third,” Chesterton coach Jamie Sensibaugh said. “We do need to maximize all of our opportunities when we have a chance to score especially one on one in the box.”

Nick Barango put the Trojans on the board just four minutes into the contest on a pass from John Ward. Ward took a pass from Billy Biehl just over seven minutes later and pushed the score to 2-0.

Things continued that way as Chesterton dominated the field. Billy Biehl scored and Keith Radzik added two goals to set the final score.

Biehl dished out two assists, while Ward, Radzik and Kyle Kogler all had one.

Trojan goalkeeper Caleb Gmyrek still hasn’t allowed a goal this year after posting his second shutout of the season. Gmyrek made two saves in the win.

“Our defense continues to be solid and our overall team defense eliminated any opportunity for them to generate a build up and attack,” Sensibaugh said.

Chesterton returns to the field on Wednesday when they play host to arch-rival Valparaiso. The junior varsity contest is scheduled for 5 p.m.

“Two more practice days of work before taking on Valpo at home on Wednesday,” Sensibaugh said. “The players are really excited about that game and I'm proud of them for not looking past our last two opponents.”
