In a one-game showdown for the Duneland Athletic Conference title, the Crown
Point Bulldogs scored early and held on for a 5-1 victory over Chesterton
“We had some chances,” Chesterton coach LouAnn Hopson said. “We struck out
in some places where we just needed a fly ball and we didn’t get the big hit
when we needed it.”
The Bulldogs scored two first inning runs and another in the second inning
for a 3-0 lead against Trojan starter Megan Tymorek. Sydney Cooley replaced
Tymorek with one out in the third inning.
“We had to minimize the damage,” Hopson said. “Sydney keeps the ball down
for the most part. She did a nice job only giving up one earned run.”
The Trojans cut the lead to 3-1 in the top of the fourth as Megan Matheny
hit a long home run over the left field wall and looked poised for a rally.
Cooley walked and moved to second as Amanda Dujmovich reached on a fielder’s
choice. A single by Tymorek loaded the bases with no out. CP starter Miranda
Elish struck out the next two Trojan hitters and got a ground ball to erase
“That was our chance to get back in it,” Hopson said. “You have to get a fly
ball there to score somebody or hit it hard and make them field it and we
Crown Point scored a run in the fourth and an unearned run in the seventh to
set the final score.
