BOXSCOREChristian Horn scored a power play goal at the 16:40 mark of the third period to give Norfolk a 6-4 lead, and it was that goal that stood to be the game-winning tally. Greenville gave Norfolk a scare heading into the third with a power play goal from newcomer Mathieu Foget to end the period.Norfolk struck for a pair, including Horn's second of the night at 8:28 to close out a two-on-one break that was the insurance tally, and an empty-net goal from Ben Holmstrom to put the game away for good.The Swamp Rabbits took hold of the game on a pair of occasions in the second period. Tied at two, Liam Pecararo scored 38 seconds into the second period and surprised Roman Durny with a shot from the wing to take a 3-2 lead. Nathan Perkovich followed suit with a pinpoint shot from the base of the left circle to give the club a 4-3 advantage.Norfolk tied it on both occasions, and took the lead halfway through the second on Austin McEneny's goal, which started a 2-for-3 power play night for the visitors.The two teams battled to a 2-2 tie after 20 minutes. Every time the Admirals got the lead, Greenville responded. First, it was Alex Rodriguez two minutes in, then five minutes later, Matt Marcinew.
