CHATHAM, NJ - Compared to the upcoming Morris County Tournament championship game, the matchup with Montville on Wednesday night didn't mean that much to the Chatham girls basketball team. At least that's what the final score seemed to say.

“We were coming off the high of the county tournament (semifinal win over Morris Catholic), and we have the game on Friday night … and our focus may not have been where it needed to be tonight,” Chatham coach Joe Gaba said.

After seven straight wins, Chatham suffered through an offensive drought in the fourth quarter, absorbing a 37-25 loss to the Mustangs.

Chatham (17-7) was limited to eight points in the second half and was outscored, 13-2, over the final eight minutes. The only Chatham points in the fourth period came on two free throws by Michaela Ford.

Senior Chloe Blanc talks about how Chatham needs to regroup for Friday's MCT final vs. Morristown

Seniors Chloe Blanc and Veronica Kelly led Chatham with 11 and seven points, respectively. Blanc hit three 3-pointers.

Chatham hopes to regroup in time for Friday's MCT matchup with top-seeded and defending Morristown as the Lady Cougars seek the school's first county title, 7 p.m. at the County College of Morris.

“We just have to put this one behind us, refocus and be ready for Friday night,” Gaba said.
