Swamp Rabbits Weekly #14 (2019–20)

WEEKLY RECAPThe Greenville Swamp Rabbits took on some of the top teams in the South Division this past week, and saw mixed success. While Greenville scored the first goal in all three games, they came away with one win in the three games in four day stretch.The Swamp Rabbits traveled to Atlanta on Thursday evening to take on a surging Gladiators club that was looking up at Greenville in the standings. Patrick Bajkov got the scoring started for Greenville in the very early going, but other than that, ran into a brick wall known as former teammate Chris Nell.Nell made up for his early mistake by making 46 saves, and the Gladiators received timely scoring, including two goals in the first period, to erase the lead and go on to the win. The Swamp Rabbits put up a season-high 22 shots on goal in the third period in the losing effort.Friday saw the Florida Everblades come to town, ranked second in the South Division. Success against the 'Blades has been few and far between over the past few years, but this night was one to remember. Up 2-1 thanks to goals by Nathan Perkovich and Ryan Black, the Swamp Rabbits poured it on in the third period.Dylan MacPherson, Jake Horton, Adam Rockwood and Kamerin Nault all scored to rout the Everblades at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena, and Jeremy Helvig made 42 saves in the win.As if the schedule couldn't have gotten more difficult, the top-ranked South Carolina Stingrays came to town on Sunday afternoon. Perkovich once again started the scoring for the 'Bits, but South Carolina scored twice unanswered to take the lead for good, and limited Greenville to just 23 shots on goal with their relentless puck pressure style of play.1/9 at Atlanta Gladiators - L 3-11/10 vs Florida Everblades - W 6-21/12 vs South Carolina Stingrays - L 2-1UPCOMING GAMESGreenville Swamp Rabbits at Norfolk AdmiralsWednesday, January 15 - 7:30 p.m.Listen Exclusively on ESPN UpstateWatchGreenville Swamp Rabbits vs Norfolk Admirals80s NIGHTFriday, January 17 - 7:05 p.m.Tickets — ListenWatchGreenville Swamp Rabbits vs Norfolk AdmiralsDC COMICS NIGHT + FAMILY FOUR PACKSaturday, January 18 - 7:05 p.m.Tickets — ListenWatchPLAYER OF THE WEEKAdam Rockwood - 3 GP | 1 G - 2 A - 3 PWith his three points this past week, Adam Rockwood continued his point streak to six games, and moved into a tie for third in rookie assists.
