girls soccer team wasted little time putting their stamp on a 7-2 IHSAA
Sectional semifinal victory over Portage Thursday night at Hobart.
“We got off to a
great start,” Chesterton coach Ben Forgey said. “We scored 23 seconds into
the match and it’s hard to start much better than that. We got our second
goal five minutes later.
“It really made
things more comfortable on the night, but I’m happy that we still played
smart and had to work for everything we got tonight.”
Goal scorers for
the Trojans included Grace Bamber, Addy Joiner (2), Gina Geenen, Ashlee
Bakaitis (2) and Lauren Sensibaugh.
well tonight, but Ashlee Bakaitis was hungry,” Forgey said. “She played a
part in five of our seven goals and decided early on that she wasn’t going
to be stopped.”
Assists came from
Bamber (2) and Bakaitis (3).
“It’s really nice
because we seem to be clicking at the right time,” Forgey said. “It sets up
the Sectional Final we’ve been expecting -- Valpo. All season I’ve said we
were the best two teams in the Region.
“Saturday we’ll see
who plays better on that night.”
The Trojans and
Vikings will matchup Saturday night at 7 p.m. at Hobart High School.
