CHATHAM, NJ - On a night when Cougar Nation came dressed in garbage bags, Chatham put the finishing touches on a 4-1 ice hockey win over Roxbury when Jack Deletto bagged an empty-netter in the waning seconds on Friday at Mennen Sports Arena.

Deletto also ignited a three-goal first period when he opened the scoring by sticking home a rebound of a shot taken by Cade Krauss 8:19 into the action. 

"We want to start fast every time and we did tonight," Chatham coach Brendon Herr said. "We had a little bit of a lull in the second there, but we bounced back in the third."

Thomas Winter filled the void left on the first line by the absence of Alex Laferriere, joining Dave Andreychuk and Evan Schmidt. Winter fit in nicely as the trio produced two goals in a span of 13 seconds in the first period, boosting the lead to 3-0 for Chatham (2-0).

Schmidt started both scoring plays, with Andreychuk firing in a shot off winter's pass with 3:53 showing in the first. Andreychuk followed with a pinpoint pass to Winter, who tipped it in from the edge of the goalie's crease with 3:40 left on the clock.

Chatham will try to win its third straight when it plays Morristown on Wednesday.
