The Chesterton softball team just couldn’t get the big hit and dropped a 2-1
Duneland Athletic Conference decision in 10 innings at Michigan City on
“We had runners in scoring position in five innings, but couldn’t get the
shot we needed,” Chesterton coach LouAnn Hopson said. “When we don’t get the
run support, it’s hard to be perfect.”
Michigan City opened up the scoring in the bottom of the first with a solo
home run, but the Trojans tied things up in the top of the second. Amanda
Dujmovich’s RBI single plated Jill Bohnert.
Things remained that way until the 10th when the Trojans intentionally
walked the Wolves’ best hitter with two out. A ground ball was misplayed in
the infield putting runners on first and second. A shot into the gap in
left-center field scored the game-winner.
