MORRISTOWN, NJ - Senior keeper Casey Madura came up with the clutch saves and Morgan Maltby converted a penalty kick in the first half, sparking Chatham to its second straight road girls soccer victory, 3-0, over Morristown on Monday.
Chatham coach Chris Mazurkiewicz had high praise for Madura, whom he said made "several fantastic saves, including a breakaway and tipping another over the crossbar."
Madura, who finished with 10 saves, was at her best in the opening minutes when Morristown (0-2) put on the pressure. With just 90 seconds left in the first half, sophomore Alex Frenzel broke her way into the box and was tripped for a penalty kick, which Maltby put away for a 1-0 lead.
Morristown continued to press the attack in the second half before Emily Walczyk collected a ball just outside the 18 and fired a shot that beat the keeper inside the far post, staking Chatham (2-1) to a 2-0 advantage.
Danielle Terzer finished up the scoring for the Cougars with a long-range shot that beat Morristown keeper Julie Blumstein, who had 12 saves.
The Lady Cougars have their home opener this Wednesday against Gov. Livingston at Haas Field.
