Trojan Boys soccer team wins opener

Back To Front Page


The Chesterton boys soccer team opened its season with a 1-0 victory on Monday night at home against Boone Grove.

“I’ll take an ugly win anytime, but certainly not our best game or best soccer,” Chesterton coach Jamie Sensibaugh said. “Only room to improve. As with just about every year, our biggest growth comes from the first game to the second. We have something to learn from.”

The game’s lone goal came from Chesterton’s Bailey Arthur as Boone Grove keeper Max Kidd recorded 17 saves.

“Boone has always been a team that is physical and defensive. They always bunker in against us and give us a hard time,” Sensibaugh said. “We had some good looks on goal and could have pushed the score higher, but (Kidd) made some good saves.”

Chesterton goalkeeper Doug Filipek went virtually untested and recorded just one save in the shutout victory.

“It was a little frustrating in that things didn’t go the way we want them to,” Sensibaugh said. “We had trouble finding our midfield and playing through there. We need to work and combine to get into the offensive third.”

The Trojans return to the field on Wednesday when they travel to Michigan City for the Duneland Athletic Conference opener for both teams.

The JV game is scheduled for a 5 p.m. start.
