The Chesterton girls soccer team opened IHSAA Sectional play with a dominant 12-0 victory 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.”

Chesterton will face off against Portage in the semifinals on Thursday at 5 p.m. at Hobart High School.
