      Eels looking to over take first place Wolves

      This week the Florida Eels Peewees face off against the FAHL’s first place team The South Florida Golden Wolves. The Wolves have 4 points and sit in first place. The Eels are in 3rd place and tied with the Wolves and the Orlando Knights where by all three teams have 4 points. The Wolves managed to score 26 goals thus far and only allowed 1 goal against. The Eels on the other hand have scored 15 goals in 2 games and only allowed 2 against. The Eels statistics are very impressive but the Wolves have a lead due to their large goals for.


      The Wolves scored 13 goals against the Sharp Shooters and 13 goals against the Breakers. Well I guess you have to ask, what are they doing playing single A hockey if they are beating opponents by such a large margin? Well the Knights and the Black Hawks are going through teams by similar margins.


      Coach Richard is no stranger to preparing his teams to play against top competition. We will face the Wolves with one thing in mind. To play our game and not be intimidated. We will play a strong positional game and need all 5 players on the ice to back check as hard as we for-check. To all keep in our positions and play a tough defensive game. Moreover, they are not the only team that can put the puck in the net. The Eels average 7 goals for and that is not bad. We have excellent goaltending so we are prepared to win this weekend.


      Game two is against the Daytona Racers. We will not be taking them lightly. They have a very good program and I am sure they will be ready for their first win of the young season and are eyeing for that to be against the Eels.


      The players are all gearing up for one of their biggest tournaments of the year. OneHockey in just a few weeks. So lets get ready for this weekends games

      Bantams Sweep Season Openers Against Toros and Bull Dogs

      Wow and we only just begun...........

       The Bantams had a great weekend with two wins in their season opener. It was a game of unknowns as so many of these players had not played with one another before and an equal number hadn’t even played a single travel game. Coaches Matt and Joey have been working very hard with the guys in their first few weeks of training. What really paid off is that so many of these players attended three weeks of summer camp and weekly clinics.

      The determination is there as has been the work ethic. Indeed, on Tuesdays the players have been training with Coach Frank and most recently with Coach Matt’s combat trainer.

      In game one the Eels faced the Miami Toros and we came at them real hard. From the drop of the puck you wouldn’t have known they were new to one another. Lucyan had 2 goals; Jake Court and Peyton Niland each had one goal. Jake Court, Peyton Niland, and Stephanie Niland each had one assist.  Will Chaney played awesome in net who kept the goals against to two. Moreover, the Bantams great as a unit. They backed checked and fore-checked with intensity and each player contributed to this win. Final score was Eels 4-2

      In game two, the Eels squared off against the Roswell Bull Dogs. The Eels matched the intensity of game one and came out with another strong win. This time in net was Joshua Rowe. He was determined to backstop his team and he did just that. The Eels won 5-3.

      Lucyan once again scored a pair of goals as in game one while Blake Smith, Vincent Zaino, Anthony Cossentino each scored one   apiece. Lucyan also had 3 assist while Ryan Leport, Vinny Zaino, CJ Mills, and Stephanie Niland each received an assist.

      Again as in game one, the Eels came out determined and focused. This team is going to do very well this season as all of the played are working hard both on and off the ice. The are buying into the Eels system that stresses just as hard as offense. We have a long way to go in improving and developing the skills of each player along with the appreciation for the game, position and over all hockey intelligence.

      No doubt Coach Matt and Joey come each and every practice with enormous energies and enthusiasm. They came with years of training right under the Florida Eels program. Each played Tier IIAA and Tier I AAA bantams and U16 for the Eels as well as    juniors for our Junior B and later Junior A teams. Each has been Captain of the Eels Junior teams and have learned so much in their formative years. Their teachings and coaching has only just begun. We look forward to this season. We realize they wont win every game but our players will learn a much more important aspect of the game. That is player development and learning to compete and the will to win.

      Great Job Guys

      Great Work Out While Having Fun

      Talk About Training….


      A Special Thanks to Coach Matt Plate.

      Coach Matt Plate invited to the Tuesday off ice strength conditioning and agility conditioning session a special conditioning trainer to help develop the bantams and peewee players. These trainers were Special Op trainers for the army. The peewees and bantams received phenomenal conditioning training. It was an outstanding 1-hour and you can tell the players got a lot out of it.

      It is great to have someone with their expertise to come in and offer another perspective on training. In today’s cultural environment where it is hard to convince so many young boys and girls to put down the computers, I Pads and smart phones and get exercise is huge. The Eels have always required off ice training as part of its program. We want to be the best-fit team(s) on the ice. Our objective is player development and off ice is an essential component in that goal.

      This is just another part of the building block…. It is not where you start in hockey but where you end out. The Eels knows where our players ultimately are destined. That goal and mission is to ultimately play college hockey. This development starts at the squirt age, continues thru peewee and bantam upwards to midgets and juniors. It is not about jumping from one program to another and back. It is about being patient, dedicated, determined and willing to make the sacrifices.
