LAPORTE | Chesterton’s girls soccer team left no doubt it was the outright Duneland Athletic Conference champion Tuesday night.

The Times No. 1 Trojans scored five goals in the first 24 minutes of the game and beat the Slicers 9-0.

With the win, Chesterton claimed its first outright DAC title since 2010. This year, the Trojans matched the 2010 squad with four goals allowed in seven DAC games.

“The girls worked really hard to get back to this position,” Chesterton coach David Galloway said. “I told them at the beginning of the year this was something they could achieve, and they went out and did it.”

“This is unbelievable,” Chesterton's Madisyn Coudriet said of winning the title. “I can’t believe all this hard work is paying off.”

Bridget Brendza led the Trojans (12-1-2, 7-0 DAC) with three goals and an assist. She assisted on Kaylee Lindahl’s goal to open the scoring in the 7th minute.

“Anytime you get that first one, it breaks the ice, and they feel like they can do just about anything, and tonight they proved that they could do that,” Galloway said.

Brendza had two goals in the first half before getting the hat trick in the 53rd minute.

“We’ve honestly worked so hard the entire summer and all the way through the season, and we deserve it more than anyone else,” Brendza said.

Chesterton scored four goals in a span of 7 minutes, 31 seconds to build a 5-0 lead late in the first half.

The Trojans controlled possession throughout the game and had a 20-1 edge in shots on goal.

Tiarra Spikes and Katie Dermody combined to make 11 saves for the Slicers.

Claire Galloway, who drilled a shot from 25 yards out into the net in the 15th minute to make it 2-0, Jordan Wadding and Claire Brady added goals for the Trojans.

Anne Marie Radzik made one save to record the shutout for Chesterton.
