It was almost two completely different soccer games.

The No. 5 ranked Chesterton Trojans fought back from a 2-0 halftime deficit to gain a 2-2 tie with No. 3 Avon on Saturday.

Im a little disappointed in that, had we shown up to play in the first half, we might have come out of there with a win, Chesterton coach Jamie Sensibaugh said.

Avon picked up goals from Caleb Alvarez and Kyle Williams to build a 2-0 lead early on as the Trojans missed several opportunities of their own.

We had early chances and didnt capitalize, Sensibaugh said. We had a couple of corner kicks where we just didnt finish on the back post.

Sensibaugh got a little vocal with his troops at halftime in an effort to raise their intensity.

As a coaching staff, we challenged them to play harder and step up in the second half, Sensibaugh said. We had to settle in a play to feet more. We had to check back to the ball better and we were playing way too direct.

Harley Lohmeyer scored early in the second half to cut the lead in half and then scored again with just 17 seconds left to garner the tie.

We were the better team in the second half, Sensibaugh said. Its a great comeback to get the tie. Avon is obviously a great program and good every year. Weve upgraded our schedule and we want to play these types of teams.

Seth Conway dished out an assist for Chesterton, while Doug Filipek had four saves.
