CHATHAM, NJ - Morgan Sullivan scored two goals and Emily Wingate came up with a goal and an assist to lead Chatham past River Dell, 3-0, in the opening round of the state playoffs on Monday at Haas Field.
"I thought we played pretty well," Chatham coach Jeremy Heinze said. "We kept our spacing and our defense really turned the tide by turning away 13 or 15 corners."
Sullivan's unassisted goal in the first half staked Chatham (11-8) to a 1-0 lead. Wingate converted a penalty stroke in the second half to make it 2-0. Wingate was credited with the assist on Sullivan's second goal.
Sophomore goalie Emily Buckman made seven saves in shutting out River Dell (6-10-1).
Chatham travels to meet West Essex on Friday in the second round of the state tournament.
