In soccer, if you score enough goals, nothing else matters.

First year Chesterton girls soccer coach Ben Forgey thinks his team can put points on the board as the season gets started tonight at Michigan City.

“We should be fun to watch,” Forgey said. “There are tons of goals in this team. We’re going to attack. We’ll work hard and together all the time.”

The Trojans lost 13 seniors from last year’s team, but do return the duo of Addy Joiner and Olivia Hansen.

“Addy scored more than 20 goals last year and we’re going to ask her to do it again,” Forgey said. “Liv Hansen is going to do all the hard work in the middle of the field for us.”

Chesterton’s roster boasts four seniors, five juniors, four sophomore and three freshmen.

“It’s a lot of new players,” Forgey said. “Several of the girls were here last year, but now they’re going to have to expand their role and do more. Some of them were behind other players and now it’s their turn.”

The Trojans should be good defensively, but have new faces in goal.

“Defensively, I expect us to be good, but they still have some work to do to become cohesive,” Forgey said. “They should be good.”

In goal, senior Marney Sisson and freshman Carley Balas are battling for the job.

“The big work in progress for us is in goal,” Forgey said. “No returning goalies are back. We have a basketball player in senior Marney Sisson and a freshman in Carley Balas. They are fighting for the spot and both are going to get their chance.”
