It was hot.

The Chesterton boys soccer team wasted little time and improved to 3-0 on the season with a 6-0 victory at home Saturday over West Lafayette.

“The mark of a good team is not being content and we weren’t content today,” Chesterton coach Jamie Sensibaugh said. “We were a little mad about the missed opportunities we had the last game. “

Jared O’Dell cracked the scoreboard just 1:30 into the game and scored again less than five minutes later for an early 2-0 lead.

“On a hot day, it’s important to get ahead and hopefully you can get some other kids in,” Sensibaugh said. “Everybody did well for us in that regard. They didn’t have the depth that we had.”

Noah Brickley got dragged down in the box with 17:39 to play in the first half resulting in a penalty kick goal for Billy Biehl and a 3-0 halftime advantage.

“I’m happy and pleased with the win, but there are things we can do better,” Sensibaugh said. “We had moments today where we didn’t possess the ball like we should have and we missed some opportunities again. We have to work on those things. Soccer isn’t an easy game.”

Trent Weller pushed the lead to 4-0 on a pass from Biehl with a heel kick inside the near post. Biehl’s second goal and a tally by Datin Ringas set the final score.

“We come out and play hard every night, in practice and games,” Sensibaugh said. “That’s something we can hang our hat on. We can always talk, communicate and play defense.”
