The Eels Premier team showed why they are ranked 5th overall in the league and in 1st place in the tough Florida Division. They came to play this weekend and to showcase their skills in front of dozens of college coaches in attendance. They had another impressive performance continuing with their all to familiar suffocating fore-check and denying and smothering back checking. You could see the jump in their stride and fire power on net. They were relentless both offensively with 29 shots on net and defensively they were stellar. Moreover, the performance in net by Duncan Rolleman was once again incredible turning away 17 of 18 shots.
The confidence exhibited by our players here is incredible. In each game they look stronger and more impressive. It is the way they are playing. Like performing surgery. Operation by precision. So fun to watch. So much fun to be part of. This is a tight group of guys and it shows.
