The Chesterton boys
soccer dominated the first half and cruised to a 4-2 Duneland Athletic
Conference victory at Valparaiso on Wednesday night.
“We had a great
first half, but didn’t match their intensity in the second,” Chesterton
coach Lucas Sabedra said. “We have to be move forward and focus on closing
games with a little bit more control.”
Zack Bowser got the
night started for the Trojans with a blast from the top of
the penalty box just 10 minutes into the game for a 1-0 lead. Soren Vagenius’
strike from 25 yards away into the upper-left corner of the goal pushed the
lead to 2-0.
“That was the best
shot Soren’s ever taken in his life,” Sabedra laughed. “That was something
you see on ESPN. That kick was amazing.”
After Bowser was
taken down in the box, Seth Conway scored the first of his two goals on a
penalty kick for a 3-0 Chesterton advantage at the half.
“They outscored us
2-1 in the second half, and they outplayed us,” Sabedra said. “Finishing the
rest of the game is something we have to do better.”
Conway scored the
Trojans’ final tally of the night with just under 15 minutes left in the
game on a pass from Bowser.
