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.

Roxbury (1-2) broke up the shutout on a goal by Billy Hefferle in the third period. Cougar goalie Zach Pendergrast came up with nine saves in notching his second win of the year.

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

Imagine a Chatham Toboggan Ride from the Top of Fairmount Avenue to Main Street

Did you know….
there was a time when Chatham kids could ice skate from downtown Chatham all the way to Florham Park? And that a toboggan ride could last from the top of Fairmount Avenue down to Main Street and beyond?

Those were the days!

This was back in the early to mid-1900s. The Passaic River meandered through grassy meadows and woods on the north side of Chatham. The marshy ...

Police Presence is the Best Short-Term Solution

February 20, 2018

To the Editor,

There is only one short-term solution that can help protect our children right now. There needs to be a police officer in every school, every day from now on and in perpetuity.
