CHATHAM, NJ - It was as if the Chatham boys lacrosse team could do whatever it put its mind to on Monday when it met up with Boonton in the Round of 16 of the Morris County Tournament.

At one point in the third quarter, senior Will Hosbein was asked if he could win the next faceoff and take it straight in for a goal so that the running clock would kick in. That's when Hosbein turned and said: "This one's for you."

Seconds later, Hosbein won the faceoff and fired in his second goal of the game during Chatham's 18-3 win over Boonton on "Senior Day" at Cougar Field. It was that kind of day for the Cougars.

No. 2 seed Chatham (12-1) won its 10th straight and will play at home in the MCT quarterfinals on Thursday against either Morristown-Beard or Mount Olive.

Chatham received goals from 13 different players, including a first-ever score by senior Sean Valenti. 

Austin Van Zant scored 14 seconds into the game to give Boonton (8-4) a brief 1-0 edge. Junior long stick Chris Conlin scored off a pass from Pat Cosgrove to tie it up and it was all Chatham after that.

Sophomore Grant Webster paced Chatham with three goals and two assists and the Cougars received two goals apiece from Frank Anello, Hosbein and Connor Byrd.

In addition to Conlin, the Cougars got one goal apiece from Thomas Berger, Ryan Chase, Cosgrove, Ryan Decker, Chris Francesco, Cole Krauss, Jack Rooney and Valenti.

Senior goalie Jack O'Neill had four saves for Chatham.

Long stick Joe Marotta didn't score a goal, but it was still a happy day for the Chatham senior
