The Florida Eels Teams Advance At the USPHL Finals Junior Hockey News

The Eels Elite team finished number 1 overall in the Eels Elite Division Frozen Four Round Robin. The Elite team advanced as first seed and play for the Championship game vs. the Hampton Road Whalers Friday at 12:20 pm. The Eels Elite team finished the round robin against the Syracuse Stars 7-0. This was a huge win for the Eels as they captured the number 1 seed overall. This is the 3rd time in 4 years that the Eels Elite are in the League’s championship finales. 

The USP3 team also advances beyond the round robin series. They defeated the Lake Forrest Lakers and the Traverse City Hounds and were edged by the Jersey Hitmen by one goal. The Eels
are in the semi finals. Unlike the Elite Frozen Four format the USP3 had 2 brackets of 4 teams. The top two teams in each bracket move on to a cross over.

This is extremely exciting for our guys. There are 34 teams between the USP3 Southern Conference, Northern Conference, the Midwest Conference East Division and West Division. Think about it there are only 4 remaining. That means 30 teams have been eliminated. WOW it is a true accomplishment for these guys.

The Eels USP3 team will face off vs. the Dells Ducks from Wisconsin. The Eels play at 9:00 am. This is quite an accomplishment for the Eels organization having both of its teams reaching this plateau. WE are not over though. There is still one game to win for the Elite team and two more for the USP3 team. The determination and instesinal fortitude demonstrated by these boys’ gives us great pride. 

Good luck guys.
