CHATHAM, NJ -  Once Grace Larson lifted her shot high into the air from outside the penalty area, all Morristown goalie Sarah Godfrey could do was turn and watch it fall into the net.

Larson's Golden Goal with 2:34 left in overtime gave the Chatham girls soccer team its first victory of the season, 2-1 over Morristown, on Thursday at Haas Field.

The victory ended a four-game winless streak for Chatham (1-3-1) and handed new head coach Gary Adair his first career victory at the school.

With the sun facing Godfrey, Larson took a shot on the first chance she got and surprised the Morristown keeper, who was off her line, with the arching high shot.

"Actually, Camryn (Davies) and I were both going for the same ball," Larson said. "Coach had told us before the overtime had started that we should take shots from anywhere. So, I thought if I have a chance, I should take it. I had no idea where I was when I took the shot."

Lauren Carini was credited with the assist on the goal by Larson, which was her first score of the season.

"It's a new year, with a new coach and a new formation as well," Larson said. "Today we worked together as a team and came together to win a game on our home turf."

Godfrey had been very active in the game for Morristown, dashing outside the box to clear balls and stifle Chatham's attack. But she strayed a little too far off her line with the sun starting to drop into her eyesight.

"She's a good keeper, but If you hit the ball at a kid when the sun is straight facing them, it can cause problems," Adair said. "Was it the best shot in the world, probably not, but it was a great shot because it went in."

Chatham had taken a 1-0 lead in the 48th minute of the game when sophomore striker Sophia Reed scored her first goal of the season. Davies fed the ball to Reed, who carried down the left wing before lifting a shot over Godfrey and into the far side of the net. 

"Coach told me at halftime to go out wide," Reed said. "I was lucky and I got a nice touch with my left foot and it went over the goalie."

Olivia Perry scored to tie the game for Morristown (2-4), which nearly won the game in regulation when a shot in the closing seconds nearly made it past Chatham goalie Caroline Viscovich.

"I was close to the six-yard yard and they kicked it past me and I was scrambling for it," Viscovich said. "I put my hand on it and it was dead on the line and I just ripped it back as soon as as I could."

"It's nice for the girls," Adair said. "It's been a really long preseason and I'm just happy for them. You can implement a system, but they do all the hard work. It's a nice confidence-booster for them because it validates what they do."

Sophia Reed finishes her shot from the left wing to give Chatham a 1-0 lead in the second half
