After splitting their back-to-back with Florida Atlantic University, the Gators are heading to Columbia, South Carolina, to take on the University of South Carolina Gamecocks. Coming in as the number nine ranked team in the CHF, the Gators have a lot of hype to live up to.
Overall, the UF roster has been solid. Even with Vinny Marino being out the last few games, the team was still able to find success on the ice with how deep their roster is. Of course, John Hunt is still leading the way. He has nineteen points so far in just seven games. Parker Mara and Harrison Haber have also been increasing their point totals, recording ten and nine points respectively. Matthew Brkljacic is leading Gator defensemen in points. He has three goals, five assists and eight points in just seven games.
The Gamecocks, however, are no team to mess around with either. They have a plethora of offensive talent that can be overwhelming for opponents. In their last game, they defeated UNC Charlotte in a 12-0 blowout. They have a 2-1-1 SECHC record and a 5-1-1 overall record.
The first game will be tonight at 8:15pm while the second game will be held on Sunday, November 7th at 9:00am. Both games will be played in Columbia, South Carolina, at Plex Indoor Sports. The games can also be watched live on the Gamecocks YouTube channel (SGTV).
