Swamp Rabbits Weekly #3 (2019–20)

WEEKLY RECAPKnowing full well that improvement was needed after last weekend's showing against the Atlanta Gladiators, the Greenville Swamp Rabbits regrouped and found a way to pick up two wins in two different ways over the Glads this past weekend.Friday's game turned out to be a game that never felt safe. While the Swamp Rabbits never trailed, their opponent never gave up. Even up 4-1 after the first period thanks to goals from Cédric Lacroix, Patrick Bajkov and a pair from Liam Pecararo, the Swamp Rabbits' lead was shaved down to one in the second and third periods.The Glads scored four of the final six goals of the game and took control of the momentum once goaltender Sean Bonar was pulled in favor of Martin Ouellette. Kamerin Nault scored the eventual game-winning goal, his first of the season, early in the third period, to help the Swamp Rabbits to the win.Timely saves and a strong penalty kill, partnered with another forceful offensive showing helped Greenville to victory on Saturday night over the Glads. Atlanta led the game at one point thanks to a late goal in the first period, but the Swamp Rabbits erased that and kept going.Michael Pelech and Pecararo struck twice to close out the scoring in the second and third periods, and goaltender Chris Nell made 36 saves on the night to keep Atlanta completely off the board from the 18:38 mark of the first period onward.The Swamp Rabbits' penalty kill was perfect on the weekend (11-for-11) and went 33.3% on the weekend on the power play. The team is now tied for second in the South Division entering a busy week ahead.10/25 at Atlanta Gladiators - W 6-510/26 vs. Atlanta Gladiators - W 5-2UPCOMING GAMESGreenville Swamp Rabbits at Tulsa OilersWednesday, October 30 - 8:05 p.m.ListenWatchGreenville Swamp Rabbits at Tulsa OilersThursday, October 31 - 8:05 p.m.ListenWatch$3 BEER NIGHT - SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 2 at 7:05 p.m.Greenville Swamp Rabbits vs. Jacksonville IcemenTicketsListenWatchGreenville Swamp Rabbits at Atlanta GladiatorsSunday, November 3 - 2:00 p.m.ListenWatchPLAYERS OF THE WEEKLiam Pecararo - 2 GP | 4 G - 2 A - 6 PNot only one of the ECHL's top-scoring rookies, Liam Pecararo is now one of the league's top-scoring players overall.
