Trojan Boys Soccer beats Valparaiso 4-2

Back To Front Page


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.

Chesterton returns to the field on Saturday when they host South Bend St. Joe. The JV game is scheduled for a 10 a.m. start.
