Florida Eels Elite Team End Tampa Juniors Undefeated Winning Streak With Clear and Convincing 7-3 Win on Friday Night. 


The Eels Elite meant business when they got on the bus yesterday afternoon in route to Tampa for Friday evenings game against the Tampa Juniors. In fact, it all started this past Monday at the gym and continued all week at practice. The last two games against the Juniors the Eels lost in OT. So close but they came up short in the win column vs Tampa. The team was hell bent in not letting this continue. The players knew they could do it. Nobody trains harder than we do says Eels GM We train 3-4 hours per day 5 days per week.

The boys knew they had to do more than lip service. They needed more than verbal believability. They had to execute their plan. Indeed that is what they did.
