So it’s not much of a stretch to imagine that so too must Monomoy/Mashpee ‘Monarchs” boys head ice hockey coach William Hadfield. Hadfield’s first-year co-op varsity ice hockey team showed its talent Saturday afternoon at the Charles Moore Arena when it thoroughly dispatched the visiting South Shore Voke boys, 7-0, in front of a delighted crowd.

The newly dubbed Monarchs scored one goal in the first period, an intimidating and convincing four goals in the second period and another pair in the third to seal the deal. Monarchs’ goalie Jack Daigneault was credited with the shutout while his brother Ben Daigneault finished the night with his first hat-trick of the season with two goals in the second period and one in the third.

It was Nick Simkins, however, who put the Monarchs on the scoreboard first and it was all his goaltender Daigneault would need. Simkins finished the night with two goals, both assisted by James Hinsley. Other goals for the victors were scored by Aidan Sullivan and Collin Fader. Fader also had a trio of assists and Sullivan added two assists to go along with his goal.
