CHATHAM, NJ - The third time was the charm for the Chatham girls soccer team as it defeated Summit, 1-0, on Thursday at Haas Field after dropping the first two games of their home stand that started a week ago.

Senior goalkeeper Sophie Collins, who did not play in Tuesday’s 3-1 loss to Randolph, made seven saves on the day and recorded her third shutout of the season for the Lady Cougars in the process. Fellow senior Shannon Lamb scored the lone goal of the match in the 10th minute.

Both teams had difficulty generating offense in the early going, but Chatham broke through when Schuyler Bixby set up Lamb, who fired her shot over the head of Summit keeper Catherine Maloney andinto the back of the net from 30 yards out.

It was a tall task for the Chatham defense to keep Summit off the scoreboard for the next 70 minutes after giving up three goals in their previous match, but they held tough to hold the lead and ultimately get the win.

“I think it’s a massive improvement from the other day,” Chatham head coach Gary Adair said. “We talked a lot in between then and today about communicating as a back line and being proactive and it seemed to be pretty effective.”

And it wasn’t just the defense that was proactive in the winning effort. The midfield controlled the ball well after the goal, according to Collins, which gave her the confidence to keep the clean sheet. Lamb had a pretty simple way of attributing this success.

“As a team, we’re all growing and we’re playing together much better,” Lamb said.

She also said that they now have a “1-0” sheet and will look to extend it when they visit Mount Olive on Monday at 4 p.m.

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 ...
