CROWN POINT | It took 94 minutes of game time and nine shootout rounds, but Chesterton outlasted Duneland Athletic Conference foe Crown Point on Tuesday.

The Trojans and Bulldogs both scored in the first half and then not again until the shootout. After five rounds in the shootout, both teams had one miss and four makes. The stalemate continued until the ninth round, when Anne Marie Radzik’s diving stop set the stage for a lower-90 goal by Claire Galloway, daughter of Trojans coach David Galloway Sr., to give Chesterton a 7-6 shootout win.

Radzik finished the contest with six saves and three stops in the shootout. Chesterton (6-1-1, 4-0 DAC) fired off 13 shots, 10 on goal, while handing the Bulldogs (6-1-1, 3-1 DAC) their first loss of the season.

Both teams had golden opportunities to go ahead in the second overtime period. The Bulldogs had a free kick from about 40 yards out with 5:30 remaining, but the ball didn’t bend to the goal and sailed out of bounds. Then, as time expired, Chesterton had a shot on goal from within the box, but it was turned aside.

Chesterton had the only scoring opportunity in the first overtime period, but a close-range shot ramped over the goalkeeper and out of bounds. The resulting corner kick was knocked out for a goal kick.

Crown Point had the best scoring chance in the second half with just over five minutes remaining. After a yellow card on Chesterton, Jenna Arnold took a free kick on goal but was turned away by Radzik. The ball got away inside the box, but the ensuing scramble saw the ball cleared out to the east sideline.

As time ran out in regulation, Arnold carried the ball up the east sideline and fired off a last-chance shot from nearly 30 yards, but the ball sailed over the goal and the match went into overtime.

Kaylee Lindahl opened the scoring during Chesterton’s first offensive chance of the game at 32:53. After a shot was turned away by Crown Point keeper Meghan Morasan, Lindahl gathered the rebound and found the lower-left corner. Lauren O’Keefe gathered a rebound for Crown Point and tied the game 1-1 with just over five minutes to go in the first half.
