MORRISTOWN, NJ - Senior guard Mac Bredahl led the way with 15 points and four assists and backcourt mate Jack Rooney dropped in 14 points for Chatham against Morristown-Beard on Monday in the Cougars' final scrimmage before the season opener at Delbarton Friday night.

The score went back to zero before the start of each quarter, but sophomore Luke Fekete's 3-pointer in the final seconds for Chatham made it a cumulative tie of 57-57.

Chatham, the two-time defending Morris County Tournament champion was down, 15-11, after one quarter, but scored the first 10 points of the second period. In that run, Andrew Bergman converted a three-point play, Rooney drained two 3-pointers, Bredahl hit a foul shot and Ryan Doherty nailed a 3-pointer.

The Cougars connected on nine 3-pointers in the game, led by Rooney's four. But one of the most notable developments in the scrimmage was the emergence of Bergman as an inside force. The sophomore came off the bench to score 11 points for Chatham.

"That's what we're hoping," Chatham coach Todd Ervin said of Bergman's inside game. "We'll find out how it works on Friday."
