This weekend the Eels Face-Off against two of their Florida Division foes the Jr Blades on Saturday and Palm Beach on Sunday. This is a very unique set of games as we generally have home and away sets against the same organization. Nonetheless 4 very important points are on the line for both the Premier and Elite squads. Both teams are coming off the USPHL Tampa Showcase where between the two teams they played a total of 9 games. In fact the Elite played the Jr Blades this past Wed thus increased their work load to 10 games over the past week.
The Elite team stumbled in their 8-7 OT loss to the Blades. Quite frankly you could tell the boys were still fighting off the exhaustion from the showcase last weekend. No excuses just fact. They had a chance to rest bit this week and re-group to get themselves settled and ready for the upcoming games.
The Premier team plays at 3:20 Saturday and the Elite squad at 9:15 pm The real test for the Elite guys is their game Sunday they play at 10:00 am and Premier 1:00 pm. Will their intense training prepare them for the upcoming games? We believe so and this is why we train the way we do all year long. This is how Nationals would be.
