Caldwell has had plenty of moments to jump for joy while racking up two early wins in shutout fashion so far this season , including Friday night's 38-0 route of Madison at Bonnel Field. The defense has been terrific , includuing with strong pursuit such as shown by linebacker Nick Silverthorne (54) who closes in on Madison RB Dante Izzo (29). The Chiefs quarterback Luke Kurzum (15) is an effective runner (12 carries for 83 yards on Friday night) and an efficient passer (7-of-9 for 156 yards). Caldwell lineman Julian Casale (52) is one of the Chiefs letting everyone know that another touchdown has been scored vs. the Dodgers. (Photos by Jeff Stiefbold-

NOTES- Caldwell has 27 playoff appearances with five championships, but has not made the postseason since 2017. The Chiefs most recent playoff sectional title came in 2008 under since retired, longtime head coach Ken Trimmer with a 22-7 win over Governor Livingston in the North 2, Group 2 final at MetLife Stadium…Caldwell was one of the few teams in the state that was able to play its full regular season allotment of nine games in the pandemic-abbreviated 2020 campaign. After a 8-3 playoff season in Lamont’s first year at the helm in 2017, the Chiefs slumped to 3-6 in 2018and 1-8 in 2019… With Verona (on the road, Oct. 1), Cedar Grove (Oct. 8, away) and Morris Catholic (Oct. 15 back at Bonnel Field) on the upcoming schedule in consecutive weeks, the Chiefs will face a gauntlet in the mid-season and will need efforts like the one it had against Madison to maintain their winning ways. Caldwell is on the road at Parsippany this coming Friday night (Sept. 24)…Madison, which dropped narrow decisions to Immaculata of Somerville (23-20, Sept. 3) and Morris Catholic (29-28 in two overtimes, Sept. 11) host Mountain Lakes (1-1) this Friday evening.
