CHATHAM, NJ - Perhaps it was the first warm weather day for the Chatham boys lacrosse team that had senior long pole Chris Grosso talking about how the Cougars were heating up. 

"We're like Giancarlo Stanton, we started the season out jittery," Grosso said. "Stanton is going to hit and we're going to start winning by big scores again. We're starting to hit on all cylinders and we're heating up."

Grosso's high spirits had a lot to do with the play of senior teammates Mac Bredahl and Connor Byrd, who combined to produce 17 points in Chatham's 14-7 win over Caldwell on Friday at balmy Cougar Field.

Bredahl racked up four goals and six assists and Byrd came up with four goals and three assists to power the win for Chatham (5-3), which was coming off a tough 12-2 loss at Summit.

Bredahl and Byrd talk about the offense and Chatham's game vs. Caldwell

Max Schelling and Byrd connected for goals in the first quarter before the Cougars really started to hit on all cylinders in the second period, scoring four goals in the first 2:34 of the period to build a 6-1 advantage.

Byrd got the second period started with his goal (see below) off a pass from behind by Bredahl just 43 seconds into the action.

Bredahl ignited a burst of three goals in a span of 22 seconds when he went down under with a shot off a pass from Byrd (see below). Fourteen seconds later, Bredahl finished off a pass from Chris Conlin and Byrd capped the spree after Colin Hart won the faceoff and pass him the ball.

The Cougars continued to click in the third quarter as Ryan Decker fired in a hard-angle shot off a pass from Bredahl to make it 9-4 (see video below) and Ryan Chase made a downhill run (see video below) for an unassisted goal to boost the lead to 10-5 with 2:34 showing in the period.

If Chatham is heating up, it's picking a good time since it travels to meet Westfield on Tuesday and then plays host to Delbarton on Saturday.
