ESTERO, FL- Four different players scored to help the Florida Jr. Blades earn the weekend sweep in a 7-2 win over the DME Swamp Rabbits on Sunday afternoon at Hertz Arena.

“I'm really happy with our work ethic right now and our ability to continue to press for a full 60 minutes,” said head coach Todd Pococke. “The guys are playing fast and getting the job done which is great to see.”

After both teams failed to score in the first, EJ Halleck scored just 12 seconds in the second period. Just 122 seconds later, Matthew Pinkerton and Seth Colter fed a pass to TJ Gerard who doubled the lead 2-0. Swamp Rabbits Seth Robbins cut the lead to one after finding away to beat netminder Cole Garver. Two minutes later, Peyton Kugler tallied his second goal of the season after finding help from Erik Peavey and Matthew Walters. A power play goal from Swamp Rabbits Hauken Barber ended the frame 3-2.
