CHESTERTON | Losing two star players has done nothing to dent the resolve of the Chesterton boys soccer team.

The Times No. 3 Trojans won their second straight game without junior Billy Biehl as four different players scored in a 4-1 victory over No. 5 Bishop Noll on Saturday afternoon.

Biehl was lost for the season last week after suffering multiple facial fractures against Andrean. Senior Jonathan Blake left the team before the season after receiving a tryout with the Chicago Fire junior team.

“These guys believe in themselves,” Chesterton coach James Sensibaugh said. “We’re progressing as we want to, and we’re looking to get better from one game to another.”

The Trojans (10-2) took advantage of a driving wind in the first half and rattled off two goals in the opening 15 minutes. Junior Jason Garmany converted a shot off a pass from sophomore Trent Weller in the 7th minute while sophomore Jameson Sensibaugh, playing in the midfield because of Biehl’s injury, scored in the 15th minute.

“Someone has to step up when it comes to the games,” Weller said. “There are more opportunities now and we need to take advantage of those.”

Chesterton dominated possession throughout the first half and keeper Caleb Gmyrek was relatively untested until midway through the second half when Aaron Garza scored on a penalty kick in the 57th minute. The Warriors (6-2-1) had a chance at a goal minutes earlier, but Gmyrek punched a ball up to the crossbar that deflected down to Ryan Cloghessy who then scored for Bishop Noll, but the goal was waved off.

“We did well with ball movement today, but ball movement doesn’t mean anything if we don’t take shots,” Bishop Noll coach Armando Garza said. “This was a game to get us ready for the postseason.”

Gmyrek may not have had many opportunities to contribute to the match on Saturday, but his leadership has been felt throughout the team.

“The message has been that we’re telling everyone to step it up (with Biehl’s absence),” Gmyrek said. “We need everyone to step out of their comfort zone. We have three captains, but that doesn’t mean that everyone on this team can’t be a leader.”

Datin Ringas added his third goal of the season and second of the week when he netted a penalty kick in the 68th minute. Weller added another goal in the 72nd minute when he dribbled through the Bishop Noll defense before pushing a shot past Jonathan Lazano.
