Eels Explode in their final season game Junior Hockey News

The Florida Eels lay out another explosive offensive
performance in their final season game Monday against the Palm Beach Hawks with
a score of 6-1. The game was an unusual Monday matinee at 11:30 am between the
two clubs at the Fort Myers Skatium. It was the 2nd game between
these two clubs over the weekend. The Eels laid a full-scale aerial attack on
the Hawks Saturday with a 8-2 unleashing on the Hawks in Palm Beach. This was
the 3rd game in as many nights as they played the Tampa Juniors in
Tampa on Sunday where we all witnessed the Eels unravel Tampa 5-3.

No doubt the Eels came out a bit tired after playing two
previous away games over the weekend. This was not only their 3rd
game but the previous two were away and I mean clearly across the State to the
East Coast of Florida 3 hours away. Then the Eels had to travel back to Fort
Myers quite late and get up Sunday morning to travel another 2 ½ hours north of
Tampa to Chapel Hill Florida, the new home of the Tampa Juniors. And then
travel back for this early afternoon home game.

The guys stayed their course Elite Head Coach Frankie
Scarpaci echoed. We may have been tired but the boys managed to keep up to
their customary tempo spotting 23 shots in the 1st period scoring
one, and then perked up for another 20 shots on goal netting another one. But
in the 3rd period the Eels came out with even more step in their
stride and drove hard at the net for another 27 shots totaling 70 on the Hawks
goaltender scoring 4 more for a 6-1 final.

Scoring for the Eels went as follows:

#54 Jordan Court
(power play) (#26 Colton Crabtree,
#35 Trey Kovalick)

#16 Zac Boyle
(power play) (#13 Jean-Simon
, #21 Nicholas

#19 Michael Gennello
(power play) (#26 Colton Crabtree,
#97 Caden Tchop

#97 Caden Tchop
(even strength) (#79 Richard Allgood,
#26 Colton Crabtree)

#13 Jean-Simon
(power play) (#9 Clayton Boyd,
#16 Zac Boyle)

#13 Jean-Simon
(even strength) (#10 Brian Kozek,
#21 Nicholas

In net
for the Eels was Trey Kovalick who turned away 20
of 21 shots for a very strong performance.
