over Merrillville at Hobart on Tuesday night.
“Tonight’s game was
a game we had to play,” Chesterton coach Ben Forgey said. “It wasn’t
necessarily the most fun for either side, but we took care of business. The
girls are playing well at the moment.
“We just have to
keep this good mentality and momentum going.”
Goal scorers for
the Trojans included Reese Forgey, Annalisa Hackett (2), Novalei Lopez,
Grace Bamber (2), Addy Joiner, Caroline Liapes, Ashlee Bakaitis, Sophie
DeRuntz and Lauren Sensibaugh.
Assists were handed
out by Forgey, Hackett, Sydney Stott (2) and Liapes.
“We had several
different goal scorers,” Forgey said. “We had a lot of players play a lot of
minutes. At one point, we subbed in an entire new 11.”
