FUNDAY IN THE SUN:

The Swamp Rabbits scored five unanswered goals on Sunday afternoon as Evan Fitzpatrick recorded his first career shutout in a 5-0 win over the Orlando Solar Bears. Brett Kemp scored the first goal of the game at the 14:51 mark in the first period, a puck that took a deflection off of a stick before falling to Kemp on the back side. Anthony Beauchamp added a tally at 18:46 putting the Rabbits ahead at the first break. Quin Foreman extended the lead, tapping in a goal at 12:55 of the second period. The Rabbits converted on their first power play opportunity of the game as Brett Kemp struck from the top of the faceoff circle at the 14:14 mark.
