After a back-and-fourth opening half of the first period, the Gladiators cashed in a pair of shorthanded goals from Reece Vitelli (18:16) and Alex Whelan (18:52) late in the frame to take a 2-0 advantage into the intermission. 

Greenville wasted little time responding in the second period, as Brett Kemp fed Jake Smith for his first of the game at 4:26. Moments later, Nick Prkusic leveled the game on a pass from Tanner Eberle at 5:42 of the second period. Kemp gave the Rabbits the lead with a goal at 7:45, before Ethan Somoza added a fourth Swamp Rabbits goal at 15:37. 

Out of the second intermission, Atlanta cut the margin in half with a goal from  Dylan Carabia just 49 seconds in. Greenville re-established its two-goal advantage with Somoza's second of the game at 4:34. Smith completed the 6-3 scoreline with his second of the game at 12:30.
