On Thursday the two-time defending state champion East Lake Eagles took on their rival, the Palm Harbor Hurricanes. After falling into an early hole by dropping the first two games, East Lake rattled off an impressive 3 game winning streak to win the match in five games.
For games 3 through 5 the Eagles made a few adjustments and played a few players out of position. But those changes were just what East Lake needed, as they were able to overtake their neighbors to the South. These two teams will meet again later in the season at East Lake and perhaps in the state playoffs as well.
