The No. 2 ranked
Chesterton boys soccer team knocked off defending IHSAA State Champion
Lafayette Harrison 2-1 on Saturday.
“We played our best
25 minutes of the year at the beginning of the game,” Chesterton coach Lucas
Sabedra said. “We possessed the ball, had numbers involved in the attack and
made great runs around the box and into their defensive third.”
The Trojans got on
the board first as Seth Conway found Robbie Capehart who volleyed the ball
out of the air into the back of the net.
“That’s the Robbie
that we love to see,” Sabedra said. “He can be so dangerous in the box.”
Harrison tied the
game at 1-1 at halftime before the Trojans managed the game-winner.
Seth Conway crossed
a ball in front of the goal that was flicked by Zack Bowser to Ryan O’Dell
for a 2-1 lead.
“It was Ryan
O’Dell’s first goal as a freshman and first game winner on varsity,” Sabedra
said. “Something tells me there will be plenty of those to come. He is a
gifted young man.”
Nick Harmon (1
save) and Peter Girzadas (1 save) combined in goal for the win.
