If defense travels, the bus to Hobart must have been full.

The Chesterton girls basketball team dominated the Brickies with its defensive pressure and rolled to a 44-26 non-conference victory on Tuesday night.

“We had good energy defensively,” Chesterton coach Jack Campbell said. “They are a Sectional team and that makes it a good win for us.”

The Trojans went on a 14-4 run to end the first quarter and then held Hobart to one basket in the second quarter as they built a 25-8 lead at the halftime break.

Chesterton held the Brickies to just 3-of-13 (23 percent) shooting in the first half and forced 17 turnovers.

“I thought we played well defensively,” Campbell said. “They were at the point where they were just trying to survive and get the ball to the next person. That’s what we have to do.”

The lead grew to 33-10 before Hobart went on a 10-2 run in the third quarter.

“We’re still battling unforced turnovers,” Campbell said. “We make bad decisions and are impatient offensively.”

Jenna Tarnowski’s 10-footer to start the fourth quarter would be Chesterton’s only basket, but they held the Brickies to just one as well.

“We had a couple of possessions where the ball went side-to-side about five times,” Campbell said. “We got a wide open 10-foot shot. That’s what we’re supposed to do.”

The Trojans hit on just 15-of-47 shots (32 percent) from the field and were 3-of-16 (19 percent) from 3-point range.

“Your field goal percentage goes up exponentially the more times the ball goes side-to-side,” Campbell said. “Or the number of times the ball is passed into the post.”

Chelsea Jackson led the Chesterton offense with 11 points, while Shannon McCoy tallied 10 points.

Rounding out the scoring were Tarnowski (6 points), Hailey Vale (4 points), Sarah Dzierba (4 points), Brittany Privett (4 points), Jenna Wadding (3 points) and Courtney Krol (2 points).

The Trojans return to the court on Friday when they travel to LaPorte for a girls-boys doubleheader beginning at 5:30 p.m.
