Eels swept the Madhatters in their 3 game home opener
The Eels Elite team swept the Madhatters in their home openers. The Eels faced the Hatters in a 3 game home stand for the home openers last weekend at the Fort Myers Skatium. The Eels Elite players have been training for the past 28 days 5+ hours per day. This is unprecedented in junior hockey. The boys faced off in 3 scrimmage games over the 4 week period and no doubt the intense training paid off with huge dividends.
Atlanta had planned to spoil the Eels home opener with wins under their belt but the Eels said NO. You could see there was a marked difference in play between the two squads. The Eels Elite team were that much faster, quicker on the decision making, more proficient in net and the attack by the Eels was relentless. The Eels conditioning was equally evident and the 3 games were a toll on both teams but was quite daunting on the Hatters.
The Eels Elite out gunned the Hatters 17-11 in the 3 games.
Congrats guys you earned the 6 points on the Weekend
