MORRIS TOWNSHIP, NJ - Even with a week off since its last game, the Chatham ice hockey team returned to the ice and used the same formula in extending its unbeaten string.

The Cougars have won all four of their games this season by one goal. And in each game, the winning goal was scored in the third period by someone who had yet to score this season.

On Saturday night, it was senior Tommy Guy's turn to step into the spotlight as he knocked in a rebound of an Evan Schmidt shot with 3:37 left in the third period to give undefeated Chatham a 1-0 victory over Morristown at Mennen Sports Arena.

So far, Thomas Winter, Alex Lafferiere, Bill Pyhel and now Guy have scored late third-period game-winners for Chatham.

"The goaltending in this league is good night in and night out," Chatham coach Brendon Herr said. "That last goal is what we've been teaching all year, getting pucks to the net, getting traffic and it paid off. Four in a row, another one-goal game and we held them to zero shots in the third period. They didn't have a single shot. To me, that's a commitment to defense."

Senior goalie Jamie Boles notched 10 saves in the shutout for Chatham (4-0) while Derek Peck stopped 19 shots for Morristown (0-5).

Boles was well-protected throughout, including a period early in the second period when the Colonials had a two-man advantage for 1:25 and failed to get off a shot.

Chatham's defense featured stellar play from Shay Black, Colin Pierce, Danny Mahoney, Greg Slamm and Tanner Acone.

"Our penalty kill has been good all season," Herr said. "Our defense has gotten better each game."
