      Peewees Continue To Roll

      Our Young Guns Keep Firing Away

      The Peewees had an awesome weekend. They spit their homestand over the weekend at the Fort Myers Skatium. They lost game one 2-1 but it was a major moral victory. The Wolves dominate all other teams in the league.. They are a very strong team that borders on AA status. No doubt they could compete in the Statewide AA league. and do well. The Eels kept this a low scoring game and we had to do all the little things right to make it happen. Our players helped cut down their scoring chances and our goalie was on fire. We back check and forced possession out of the zone.

      The final score was 2-1. Coach Richard said we will beat them this year. We are closing in on them. It is a matter of how hard the Eels will work in those games and whether we play disciplined and stick to the game plan. 

      Game two was a shooting fest. The Eels came on fire with 9 goals past the Daytona Goalie. The players came out very spirited and were hungry and wanted to cement the win. This was time to showoff their skill set and have a little fun at that.

      It was a great weekend to watch hockey and especially nice being it was at home.

      We are proud of you guys

      Florida Eels Peewees Win Both Games In Weekend Home Stand


      The Peewees had a phenomenal weekend capturing 4 points over the weekend cementing itself in 2nd place. The Eels Peewees downed the Miami Toros 5 to 3 by a clear and convincing win for the Peewees. They also took down the Palm Beach Breakers 4 to 3 thus garnering 4 points for the weekend.


      Coach Greg Richard had these guys working very hard up and down the ice. Fighting for loose pucks battling along the boards doing a lot of little things that win games. We cannot underscore the back checking and intense for check being played by the young guns.


      It is so nice to see our players learning so much that we are teaching them says GM Scarpaci. They are eager to learn and it takes time and patience. Coach Richard brings a little more each week of his teachings. He does not want to overwhelm them. It is all part of “Player Development”


      The Players are always ready and willing to learn says Coach Greg. It is fantastic to have players like ours who come with desire and determination to get better.

      Eels Bantams Split Games On the Road Go 1-1

      10/29/2014, 4:30pm EDT
      By Frank Scarpaci

      The Bantams Spit Weekend Games. They lost to the top team in the league the South Florida Golden Wolves and Defeated the Daytona Racers. The Eels were able to gain two points over the weekend and that is always good especially when you are on the road. The players worked really hard and there is no doubt these guys are  moving in the right direction. 

      The Bantams are developing quite well. They are an extremely young squad with 4 natural peewees on the team. Most of the other teams we play are laced with 2nd year Bantams and they no doubt present a challenge for our guys. But our bantams never quit. They are fore-checking hard and back check with equal zeal to maintain defense.

      The players are getting better at each practice and measurably better in each game. We are looking forward to the next few series and the Christmas Showcase at Germain and the Skatium

      We are very proud of this group of players and our hat goes out to the coaches for the great job the coaches are doing in developing our players.
