CHATHAM, NJ - Chatham field hockey coach Jeremy Heinze was curious enough to check the scorebook. Sure enough, he was right. Each member of his forward line had scored a goal in Chatham's 4-1 victory over Morris Hills on Tuesday at Haas Field.

Chatham (3-0) received a goal apiece from seniors Mary Farricker and Morgan Sullivan and one each from juniors Emily Wingate and Jess Barry.

"It's funny, as we were subbing in our midfielders, one of them said, 'Our attack is very good' and she was right, they are," Heinze said. "They can score from a lot of different places and a lot of different ways."

So far, the consistency of the forward line with wingers Farricker and Wingate and inners Barry and Sullivan has sparked the great start to the season. Barry has scored a goal in each of the three games.

Wingate connected on a pass from Farricker to give Chatham a 1-0 lead just 5:27 into the action. Less than three minutes later, Kristen Maiorano fired a shot on goal and Sullivan redirected it into the goal for a 2-0 advantage.

Farricker contributed her first goal of the season when she slipped her shot through the goalie's pads, making it 3-0 in the second half. Andrea Nestman got a goal back for Morris Hills (0-2) before Barry collected an unassisted goal with 2:38 showing.

"We converted our opportunities into goals," Maiorano said. "It's really exciting. It's how I'd say every team wants to start off their season. The hard work that we put into practice every day is translating into games. We won't let down, we're going to come out for our next game with the same intensity."

Chatham plays at Morris Knolls on Thursday.
