HIGHLAND | After not watching an amateur soccer game for 11 years, a gentleman by the name of Brad Jaeger, who resides in South Bend, joked that Billy Biehl's name will be etched in his brain for the rest of his life.

Jaeger, who was in the area visiting family, caught a stand out performance on Saturday afternoon by the Chesterton junior midfielder.

Biehl's name kept getting called by the Highland announcer on corner kicks, for shots on goal and for goals scored.

Biehl recorded two goals within a span of five minutes in the first half of Times No. 3 Chesterton's 3-0 win over No. 6 Highland.

After a stalemate through the first 15 minutes, Chesterton (7-2) scored first when senior forward John Ward juked a Highland defender, kicked it 10 yards and found a streaking Biehl for a one-on-one victory with Highland keeper Josh Bertossi.

Biehl struck again in the 21st minute when the host Trojans tried clearing the ball out and he capitalized by stealing it and kicking it right between Bertossi's legs.

"I like to try and make things happen for the team," Biehl said. "It was a great pass from John (Ward) to make an it an easy finish on the first goal."

The visiting Trojans then blew the game open a mere two minutes later after senior midfielder Trevor Turner's offering to sophomore forward Trent Weller turned in to a header.

Highland finally got its first two shots on goal in the 44th minute, which included a header by senior Joey Goodeve that almost went in until Chesterton senior keeper Caleb Gmyrek deflected it at the last second.

"Billy did what he always does in games and that's bringing a lot of energy and stirring things up in the midfield," Chesterton coach James Sensibaugh said. "We don't always play well here, but (Saturday) was a total team effort."

Bertossi recorded seven stops for Highland.
