MUNSTER | Chesterton's game plan that progressed during the game was to keep attacking and keep the Munster defense on its toes.

That mission was accomplished in an emphatic way on Saturday afternoon in Times No. 3 Chesterton's 4-0 victory over No. 4 Munster.

The visiting Trojans (6-1) were the aggressors from the get go, as they threatened to score in the third minute when Munster defender Clay Arnold was called for a penalty in the box.

But on the ensuing penalty kick, Munster keeper Xavier Hofferth stopped Trojan midfielder Jared O'Dell's attempt.

Chesterton sophomore forward Trent Weller scored a minute later after grabbing a free kick and striking into the goal.

After he received a beautiful lead pass from Weller that drew Hofferth out a few yards, senior forward John Ward beat Hofferth to the ball and put it in for Chesterton's second goal.

"We make good diagonal runs and try to take the keeper off the ball," said Weller.

The Trojans came out with the same intensity in the second half, as junior midfielder Jason Garmany added the third goal off of a rebound from a free kick.

Munster (3-1-1) had its first threat of the match in the 54th minute when Brett Kaufmann beat the defender off the ball, but his shot went wide left, grazing the post and going out of bounds.

Trojan junior midfielder Adam Whitlow added a goal in the 77th minute.

Hofferth had seven stops for the Mustangs.

"We played complete team soccer in the first half and conditioning paid off for us because we have a rigorous program," Chesterton coach Jamie Sensibaugh said. "With today being hot and humid, it played into our favor because we have worked really hard."
