The Chesterton girls soccer team put the finishing touches on a perfect
Duneland Athletic Conference season with a 9-0 victory at LaPorte on
The victory gives the Trojan team its third DAC title in four years.
“Winning the conference title outright was always the goal for us,”
Chesterton coach David Galloway said. “The program is certainly going the
way we would like it to. We have a system of play and a system of training
that’s been established. If the girls are willing to buy into it, we’ll
continue to have a chance at continued success.”
The Trojans got the games opening goal in the 6th minute as Kaylee Lindahl
took a crossing pass from Bridget Brendza for a 1-0 lead.
“We got out of the box fast tonight,” Galloway said. “We worked on crossing
in practice yesterday and it worked well for us.”
Brendza would score three goals in the victory as the Trojans put four
scores on the board in a span of 7:31.
“We were perfectly loose tonight as a team,” Galloway said. “Our warm-up was
great and we had good focus. We stuck to the game plan and executed it.”
Claire Galloway (2), Katie Green (2) and Jordan Wadding all added goals for
the Trojans in the victory.
Anne Marie Radzik recorded two saves in the victory as Chesterton outshot
“Our defense consisting of Madisyn Coudriet, Kristin Mabry, Bethany Molnar
and Anne Marie Radzik in goal is getting better and better,” Galloway said.
“I challenged them to be better than our team in 2010. They gave up four
goals all year and we had given up four going into tonight. They needed a
shutout and got it.”
