Four minutes later, Nick Masiero scored the first of his two goals unassisted to give the Spartans a 2-0 lead at the break.
Chris Peretti increased Monument's lead to 3-0 with a goal nine minutes into the second half. Derek Graves then connected with Masiero for another strike seven minutes later to close out the scoring. Aaron House made two saves in goal to earn the shutout in goal for the Spartans, while Tom Galisa stopped 14 shots in a losing effort for Hoosac.
