girls soccer team took control early at LaPorte and never relinquished it
garnering a 2-0 Duneland Athletic Conference title clinching victory.
“We were able to
get scoring opportunities by getting the ball in the final third,”
Chesterton coach Jason Conway said. “We just didn’t get the ball in the back
of the net as often as I thought we could have.”
Addy Joiner scored
the game’s first goal just 1:22 into play.
“I was glad we got
that goal early, that kind of helped calm us down a little bit,” Conway
The Trojans pushed
the lead to 2-0 when she took a pass from Carley Perkins and scored past
LaPorte goalkeeper Riley Penziol midway through the first half.
“It’s a lot more
special to win (the DAC title) outright,” Conway said. “The DAC is a strong
conference. There are a lot of good teams. To be able to win the DAC is
special. The girls always have winning the DAC as one of their goals at the
beginning of the season.”
