CHATHAM, NJ - Just eight days after scoring its fewest points in a game this season, the Chatham girls basketball team lit the scoreboard for its highest point total against the very same team, posting a 60-25 win over West Morris on "Senior Night" Tuesday.
Chatham (15-4) had scored just 32 points in a loss at West Morris on Feb. 3, but nearly doubled that total with four players hitting for double figures, led by senior Shannon Donohoe who ended with 17 points and 11 rebounds.
"We shot 24 percent from the floor (in that loss)," Chatham coach Joe Gaba said. "What happened was that we made shots. It's a simple game. If we make shots, they can't stay in a box-and-one. When you have four kids go double digits, we're going to be hard to stop."

Chatham took a commanding 25-7 lead into the halftime break by putting together a 17-5 run in the second period. The Cougars capped their big quarter with back-to-back 3-pointers by Carly Frohnapfel and Hartnett (see videos below).
In the second half, Ford made sure the game would not be in doubt by hitting two straight 3-pointers (see video below), pushing the Chatham advantage to 38-13.
