Back To Front Page


The No. 2 Chesterton boys soccer team remained unbeaten on the season, but played No. 16 Hammond Morton to a 2-2 tie on Monday night.

“We allowed a goal in the first few minutes from unorganized defense and a lack of communication. It was an amazing goal combined with some lousy organization in the back,” Chesterton coach Lucas Sabedra said.

The Trojans possessed the ball for most of the first half, but couldn’t find the equalizer before halftime. The Governors pushed the lead to 2-0 in the second half before Chesterton mounted its comeback.

“We did a great job of moving the ball around and into their defensive third, but that doesn’t put a goal in the back of the net,” Sabedra said. “We have to work on getting numbers involved and creating more chances.”

Seth Conway cut the lead in half on a crossed ball into the box from Joey Stark.

The scored remained 2-1 until 40 seconds left when a ball was launched into the box in front of the Hammond Morton goal and a hand ball resulted in a penalty kick.

On his 16th birthday, Nick Biel buried the chance to knot the score at 2-2.

“Nick has so much composure and maturity for only being a sophomore,” Sabedra said. “We wouldn’t be the same team without him.”

The Trojans return to action on Wednesday when they travel to Portage. The JV game is set for a 5 p.m. start.
