On the other side of the rink, Montville goaltender Josh Beron finished with 33 saves on Chatham’s skaters.

“They played well,” Beron said. “They came out hard from start to finish. I thought we played well as a team, but losing is a part of the game.”

William Barnett (two goals), Jack O’Connor, Brett Montgomery, Austin Pierce, and Teddy Simson each contributed to Chatham’s victory on Friday night. William Barnett’s second goal of the game, as well as Brett Montgomery’s goal was scored on the power play.
