Not Like The Old Days

It’s a little disappointing to see the small turnout of Elmira fans here for the early semifinal.  Soaring Eagle fans used to be some of the best traveling faithful in D-III.  There is a smattering of purple-clad Eagle enthusiasts here, but few than 100. In their heyday, you’d probably see 400 or 500 fans traveling up from the Southern Tier. The arrival of the UHL Jackals really depleted that Elmira fan base — even games at the Murray only draw a fraction of the 3,000-plus they used to draw.
