The Trojans made the adjustments.

The Chesterton girls basketball team shared the ball and made a late defensive adjustment to pick up a 50-36 Duneland Athletic Conference victory over Valparaiso 50-36 on Friday night.

“Good win,” Chesterton coach Jack Campbell said. “Anytime Valpo and Chesterton get together, it makes no difference what the records are. It’s going to be a tough game.”

The Trojans came out hot and built a 10-4 lead after one quarter, but the Vikings finished the half on a 7-0 run to pull within 24-20 at the break.

“Their defense gave us trouble in the first half and turned us over,” Campbel said. “We made an adjustment to bring our posts up to help with it and the offense got better.”

The Chesterton lead moved to 40-33 after three quarters after the Trojans hit four 3-pointers, including two from Ciara Bonner. Bonner and Emma Pape led CHS with nine points.

“We didn’t have anybody in double figures,” Campbell said. “That’s good balance for us. We have to be like that.”

The Trojans final adjustment of the night came defensively in the fourth quarter when they held the Vikings without a field goal. Valparaiso hit on just 10-of-39 shots (25.6 percent) from the field and were just 4-of-19 from 3-point range.

“We played things much softer in the fourth quarter,” Campbell said. “When you have big guards like they do, it’s hard to constantly put enough pressure on them. They got some layups in the first half, so we just had to make an adjustment.”

Rounding out the scoring for Chesterton were Carley Balas (8 points), Nalani Malackowski (7 points), Emma Schmidt (7 points), Katelynn Carr (5 points), Liz Pokorney (3 points) and Kristina Kokot (2 points).
