MUNSTER | After the 1-0 battle that Munster waged on Thursday night in the semifinal against Highland, Mustang coach Jim Prasopoulos wasn't too worried about how his team was going to respond Saturday afternoon.

Munster sophomore forward Nick Cossyleon scored two goals and added an assist, all in the first half, as the Mustangs cruised to a 7-0 shutout over Morton to win their ninth consecutive sectional title.

"I moved off the ball, challenged the defense, and it came out good for me," Cossyleon said. "I'm pretty happy with how I played."

Among the other goal scorers for Munster (11-3-3) were Zarko Coric, who added his 20th, Chris Tassaro, Jake Shalen, Drake Bowers and Demetri Georgalas.

"I wasn't worried how they'd respond, but I wasn't happy for the first 10 minutes of the game," Prasopoulos said. "We were lazy starting off, and the practice after the Highland game was horrible."

It was also a short day for Mustang junior goalie Ethan Flahaven, who had four saves in just the one half of action.

"After the first 10 minutes, they got it back together, and it was good to get guys some playing time and for guys who have logged a lot of minutes this season to get some rest," Prasopoulos said.

Senior goalie Louis Ortega had 11 saves for Morton (6-9) in the loss.

"We gave it all we could, but they played better and deserve it," Morton senior forward Israel Rosillo said. "We trained hard, but they trained harder, and hopefully, they'll learn from this loss."

Munster will now face Lake Central, who won the Crown Point Sectional, at 5 p.m. Wednesday at the Merrillville Regional.

"We know what they have, and they know what we have," Prasopoulos said. "We're happy with the win, but they still have to get re-focused, especially with L.C."
