This marks the second straight season that the Kings have beaten the Eagles in the Coastal Conference Final.
The end of the series marks the final game in a Surrey uniform for the team's five 20 year olds - Tyler Morley, Steve Koshey, Linden Saip, Robert Lindores and Brandon Tanev.
Five more players will be heading to the NCAA next season. Brayden Jaw (Harvard), Alex Hagen (St. Lawrence), Matt Cronin (Merrimack), Andrew Hunt (Clarkson) and Charles Orzetti (Yale). Tanev (Providence), Koshey (Alabama-Huntsville), and Morley (Alaska Fairbanks) will also join the college ranks.
Surrey will have a strong returning core next year and the playoff experience gained in 2012 will help the entire organization in the future.
