CHATHAM, NJ - The Chatham girls soccer team needed someone to step up after leading scorer Caroline Crouse suffered a broken leg two days ago.

Enter junior Meredith Enslow, who produced her first goal of the season off a cross from classmate Emma Droner in the second half, lifting Chatham to a 1-0 win over Summit on "Senior Day" Friday at Haas Field.

The win boosted Chatham's record to 11-4, bettering the mark of 10-8-2 produced a year ago.

"It's more about the performances," Chatham coach Gary Adair said. "The record reflects the performances this time. In the past, we played well and it didn't reflect the performance. My first season, we were 4-11 and the effort was there. This season, they're getting validation for the way they've played, which is great. More important than the record is that we want to try and get as far as we can in the state tournament. 

The Lady Cougars nearly took the lead in the 12th minute of the first half when senior Sophia Reed won the ball and turned it into a breakaway. Her low shot toward the right corner was denied by a sprawling kick save by the Summit goalie Catherine Maloney, who ended with 11 saves.

Chatham received a sparkling save of its own from junior goalie Olivia Mathern, who denied a Summit goal with a leaping save that deflected off the crossbar and out with three minutes left in regulation. Senior central defender Olivia Robertson helped protect Mathern, who made six saves to gain the shutout.
