The Reading boys’ hockey team turned what was expected to be a tight Middlesex League game against Winchester into a one-sided affair, defeating the Sachems, 5-0, at Burbank Ice Arena, Reading.
Reading took advantage of poor defense, with Connor Frazier earning the first goal off a rebound.
Fourth-ranked Reading also made good on an early power play, senior forward Robert Devaney beating sopohomore goaltender James Offner with just less than three minutes left in the first period.
No. 11 Winchester had four power-play opportunities, including a five-on-three, in the second period but came up empty.
Reading scored three goals in the final period. Just more than five minutes into the period, junior forward Jake Barbera scored on a wrap-around goal; and 30 seconds later, senior forward Mark Dente scored the first of his two goals.
