CHS Boys Soccer outlasts Portage

Back To Front Page


The No. 2 ranked Chesterton boys soccer team guaranteed themselves a share of the Duneland Athletic Conference crown with a 2-1 win at Portage on Wednesday.

The Trojans will travel to LaPorte next Wednesday for a chance at the outright league title.

“Portage did a great job defensively and kept us out of the goal in the first half,” Chesterton coach Lucas Sabedra said.

The scoreless tie was broken up by Chesterton’s Robbie Capehart who took a ball from Nick Biel, dribbled around a player and blasted a shot off the crossbar from 25 yards out.

Capehart pushed the lead to 2-0 as he found Zack Bowser on the back line. Bowser beat Portage keeper Ethan Ables.

Portage’s lone goal came on an own goal by the Trojans when an attempt to clear the ball bounced off a Chesterton defender and into the goal.

“It was a frustrating way to give up a goal, but it doesn’t change the fact that we are at least co-champions of the DAC,” Sabedra said. “Next week we play LaPorte with a chance to win the DAC outright.”

Peter Girzadas recorded two saves in the victory.
