The Chesterton baseball team couldnít overcome three errors and dropped a 6-3 Duneland Athletic Conference decision at Valparaiso on Wednesday.

The Trojans jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first as Owen Hallas singled to start the game and Matt Kubacki blasted a two-run home run.

The Vikings answered with one run in the bottom half of the frame and the game remained that way until the bottom of the third.

Valpo would score four runs on just one hit as they took advantage of a pair of walks and three Trojan errors to build a 5-2 lead.

The Vikings scored another run in the fifth before the Trojans mounted a rally in the sixth.

Patrick Arndt led off the inning with a single. Pinch-runner Michael Jacobucci moved to second on a passed ball and went to third on a ground out by Brett Roeske.

After Cameron OíBrien walked, Patrick Tildenís ground out scored Jacobucci, but the rally ended on a fly out.

Offensively, Kubacki tallied two hits, while Hallas, Travis Brooks and Arndt all had singles.
