Monroe shuts down Jefferson

MONROE - After the Monroe boys soccer team gave up 10 goals to Delavan-Darien in a season-opening loss Thursday, coach Tony Vasquez on Saturday made a switch on defense to a 3-2-3-2 alignment that gave the Cheesemakers one extra midfielder back against Jefferson. The defensive adjustment paid off as Monroe beat Jefferson 3-0 in a lightning-shortened game that was called after 73 minutes at Honey Creek Park Saturday. The championship game of the quad was canceled due to the storm after teams waited about 30 minutes for the storm to stop.
