THE SOUTH PREVAILS!!!!!
DI & DII Semi's SetSECRHL March 1st, 2009 at 2:11PM March 1st, 2009 2:19PM
Live in Snellville, GA at the South East Regional Championships, the southern conference teams have taken over. Thatâ€™s right, all across the board the south has shown impressive results. In D1 the favored UCF Knights started off a little shaky and was losing at the beginning of both their games. This didnâ€™t last long though and they quickly realized that this is playoffs and its either go big or go home. With two dominating wins, they have locked in first place seed going into the playoffs. Florida and Florida International had a battle developing on the other rink while Central Florida was putting on what one might have mistaken as a free clinic against NC State. The Gator, Panther game ended in a dead heat with one of Floridaâ€™s â€œTwin Towers,â€ Jesse Meyer, scoring to tie it with 1:40 left to go in the game. This gave the Knights their automatic first seed since they were the only 2-0 team in the division. In the other D1 games the south just proved that they are the dominate conference and that this civil rivalry is very lopsided. In the quarter finals game tonight NC State got a rematch on rival East Carolina and took advantage of it with a large scaled victory. FIU faced off with Middle Tenn and almost blew not only their regional tournament, but also their national bid possibility as well. With a late comeback with 10 minutes to go in the game they finally regained the lead. Middle Tenn had a few great chances at the end of the game, but just couldnâ€™t capitalize.
In D2 the south has also taken off full speed and never looked back. First ranked Florida Atlantic has shown that not only very few teams in this region belong on the same rink as them, but also very few teams in this country as well. They are my pick to win this yearâ€™s D2 regional championship, and with such a young team they will definitely be contenders for many regional and national titles in the near future. Not far behind is in-state rival Tampa. In their only meeting this season Florida Atlantic was victorious, although Tampa has been very solid so far this weekend. If Tampa can keep their composure and stay out of the box, I think they will get a rematch against Florida Atlantic in this yearâ€™s regional championship game. In this evenings quarter finals games, fatigue kicked in. Having already played 3 games in the day, you could tell the teams didnâ€™t have the â€œsparkâ€ they had earlier. There werenâ€™t any upsets in the quarter finals, although some great nail bitters. Elon and West Carolina were neck and neck throughout the entire game, with Elon finally capitalizing late. Elon also had a 5 minute power play that West Carolina did an amazing job killing off. It will be interesting to see how the games wind up tomorrow in the semi finals and the finals.
Selection Monday is here!
