In the first period, Greenville scored just before the midway point of the frame, as Ayden MacDonald scored his 20th of the season at 9:15, tucking a back-side feed into the back of the net. At 16:16, Nikita Pavlychev scored his 14th of the season, backhanding the puck into the Admirals net for the 2-0 lead. After a scoreless second period, the Admiral found an answer at 3:19 into the third, as Noah Corson cut the deficit in half, before Marly Quince chested the puck into the net at 4:58 to tie the game at 2-2. At 14:42, Ryan Valentini scored for the Admirals lead, before Elijah Vilio scored a late power-play goal for the 4-2 final score.  With the loss, the Swamp Rabbits fall to 33-28-6-4, while the Admirals improve to fall to 28-37-3-3. Despite the loss, the Swamp Rabbits clinched the fourth and final playoff spot in the South Division after the Orlando Solar Bears fell to the Jacksonville Icemen on Saturday night.
