GRAFTON - For the second time this season, Grafton skated to a 12-0 win over the Monroe Avalanche boys hockey co-op Saturday.

Grafton scored just one goal in the first period.

"I thought we had a very good chance of winning, even missing Evan Byrnes," who was out due to a family obligation, Monroe coach Josh Smith said. "But we started to overthink things instead of just playing the game and we started to beat ourselves up and let in a cascade of goals."

Grafton's Taylor Snider had a hat trick scoring five goals to go along with two assists. Teammate Nate Perez scored two goals and had three assists and Jeff Wade had a game-high five assists.

Monroe goaltender Dan Guilliams had 16 saves.

The Avalanche (0-8) had five penalties and Grafton took advantage scoring three power play goals.

"We spent too much time on the penalty box with short numbers," Smith said. "Now we have a break until early January so hopefully we can use this as a reset and start fresh the second half of our season."
