Eels Premier team Comes Up With a Solid Win Over Jr Blades

Their Smiles Tell The Entire Story

Well folks the Eels Premier team did what they do best and that is win another big one last night over the Jr Blades. The Eels are now in sole possession of 1st place with 18 wins for 37 points in only 22 games. In 2nd is Tampa who have played 25 games and have 33 points. The Blades in 3rd with 21 games and have only 17 points. Both Palm Beach and Atlanta have only 10 points battling for that 4th playoff spot.

More than the win it was how the Eels played. Think about it. This Blades team is one of the most improved squads in the Division. They played the Eels tough taking us into OT. But to appreciate how well the Eels played you have to think about who was not in the line up. Now that tells the entire story. 3-4 key players and the Eels played at the level they performed.

This was the Eels last game before the Showcase next week. The Eels will have several days of practice to hone in their skills and get everyone on board and ready for the key games against their Southeast foes.
