Florida Eels Elite Team Avenge 2 OT Losses by a Crushing 7-1 Defeat Over the Jr Blades

Every player in this game was key to the win….

The Eels Elite team were upended twice by the Jr Blades in OT last week but today they responded with a clear crushing defeat over their cross town rivals the Jr Blades. They were out to avenge their losses and this was a loud statement in that direction. The Blades struck first but then it was all Eels with two goals in the first period. Valpeteris 6 (Kaiser, Campbell), 6:44. 3, Florida Eels, Colton 7 (Di Re, Carnes), 18:56.

In the 2nd period the Eels struck again for two making the score 4-1

Valpeteris 7 (Di Re, Cermak), 1:08 (PP). 5, Florida Eels, ClIngerman 17 (Marchetta, Di Re), 5:23.

You could tell going down by 3 goals really was taking a toll on the Blades as they saw their two game winning streak and push for a playoff spot dwindle. Body language was telling the story for both teams. The Blades a bit slower and the Eels with a huge surge

In period 3 the Eels saw blood and tuned up the throttle with 3 more goals and a shut down performance by veteran Net minder Jake Mork. (23 shots-22 saves).

Di Re 12 (Cermak, Valpeteris), 1:47 (PP). 7, Florida Eels, ClIngerman 18 (Marchetta), 3:28 (PP). 8, Florida Eels, Cermak 15 (Di Re, Colton), 4:40.

What was amazing in this game was those top Eels players missing from the game because of sickness or injury. Great job guys
