CHATHAM, NJ - Some people insist they have a "good side" when it comes to taking photos. After Chatham's Morris County Tournament win over Roxbury on Wednesday, Gabby Cutlip might argue that she has a good side when it comes to playing field hockey.
The senior was switched from the right side to the left side of the midfield during the first half and the change coincided with two goals in Chatham's 3-1 second-round MCT win at Haas Field.
Chatham (8-3) had taken a 1-0 lead 5:39 into the game on a penalty corner. Carlin Chazen inserted the corner to Charlotte Hamilton, who drove the ball into the circle. Hailey Coates collected the ball and sent it to the far post, where Chazen knocked it into an open goal (see below).
Cutlip, who hadn't scored a goal all season, scored two unassisted goals in a span of two minutes in boosting Chatham to a 3-0 lead before the halftime break. Cutlip dodged her way to past the Roxbury defense to score her first goal (see below).
"When she got the first goal the momentum started picking up and then she got the second goal right away," Chatham coach Kaitlin Leyden said. "She was the unstoppable one out there. She was dodging right and left and the girls just couldn't keep up with her. Gabby just stepped up to the position and dominated."
