Back To Front Page


The Chesterton softball team pushed Crown Point to the limit, but dropped a 6-4 Duneland Athletic Conference decision in nine innings on Tuesday.

The Trojans opened the scoring as Faith Matta singled with one out in the third and scored on Maddie Snemisí hard ground ball to center field.

CP immediately answered with a solo run in the fourth inning, but Chesterton answered with two more in the fourth.

With the bases loaded and two outs, Lauren Kobialka scored on a wild pitch. Snemis would draw a bases loaded walk that plated Kaitlyn Carr for a 3-1 Trojan lead.

The Bulldogs again answered as they put three runs up in the fifth.

Chesterton tied the game and forced extra innings with a solo run in the sixth. With two outs, Cassidy Grimm singled to center field scoring Matta for a 4-3 lead.

The Bulldogs put the finishing touches on the game with a two-run rally in the top of the ninth.

Offensively, Grimm and Micaela Iacovetti led the attack with two hits each. Benko worked all nine innings in the pitching circle and struck out four in the loss.

Chesterton returns to its home field today when they host Portage. First pitch is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.
