The Chesterton softball team dropped its first game of the season, but responded with a pair of victories in the Horseshoe Classic at Pendleton Heights on Saturday.

In the opener, the Trojans dropped a 3-2 decision in eight innings to Rising Sun.

“The Rising Sun game was frustrating,” Chesterton coach LouAnn Hopson said. “We had 10 hits, but had a hard time hitting when it counted and left 10 runners on base. Most of them were in scoring position.”

Offensively, Mallory Mckee had three hits, while Shelby Carter added two. Sydney Cooley and Amanda Dujmovick each had a double.

Chesterton responded by jumping on Lake Central with four first-inning runs en route to a 10-0 win.

“The girls rebounded nicely against Lake Central,” Hopson said. “LC didn’t throw DelToro or Karberg and our girls just unloaded on their pitchers and defense. We had already decided Sydney (Cooley) would pitch the second game and she and our defense shut them down.”

McKee, Cooley (2 doubles) and Megan Matheny (2 doubles) all had three hits in the victory.

The Trojans completed the day with a 4-3 victory in nine innings against Madison Grant.

Using the international tiebreak rule where the last out from the previous inning starts at second base, the Trojans pushed a run across in the bottom of the ninth as McKee’s bunt got through the charging defense to plate Sierra LaFreniere.

“Madison Grant charged the bunt hard in the eighth and got the runner at third, so we talked to Mallory about pushing it to the first base side,” Hopson said. “She did and it got through.”

Carter and Amanda Dujmovich (2 RBI’s) had two hits each for Chesterton in the win, while LaFreniere added a triple.

The Trojans return to the field on Tuesday when they travel to Portage for a 4:30 p.m. first pitch.
