Dunivan: Monarch hockey team chalks up another lopsided win

Monarch’s Sean McGann, seen here in a game against Mountain Vista earlier this year, contributed to another dominating win Tuesday with a goal in MHS’ 5-1 win against Ralston Valley.

Roll on, MoHi. Roll on.

Just three days after dismantling previously undefeated Cherry Creek down in the Bruins’ neck of the woods, the Coyotes hockey team took to the road again Tuesday and thoroughly dominated another top-ranked team — a Ralston Valley team that Monarch has always had trouble with.

APEX in Arvada was the site, and Jake Young was the star for MHS once again, scoring three goals in a 5-1 victory that gave RVHS its first loss of the season, as well.

In the game, Young had a hat trick, Adam Tybor added a goal and Brendan Van Haute had three assists. The Coyotes leapt to a 3-1 lead after one period and shut out the Mustangs for the rest of the game.

Young now has five hat tricks this year and 21 total goals, and Tybor is up to 12 goals, as well.

Seriously, this MoHi team is clicking on all cylinders. In 10 games, they’ve scored 105 goals while allowing just eight … yes, eight.

Let’s put it in perspective.

When the Coyotes started their big run in 2012-13, they outscored opponents 125-41 (in 23 games). In 2013-14, it was 140-35, again in 23 total games. And last year, their scoring margin was 137-41.

The numbers boggle the mind, and with the schedule that’s ahead they’ll only get more out of hand. Clearing the hurdles at Dakota Ridge, at Creek and at Ralston Valley leaves but one real tough game left on the docket — that coming Feb. 6 at Regis Jesuit. The Raiders have an even more equally impressive scoring margin (plus-95).
