In the second meeting between the two sides this season, Atlanta jumped ahead just 38 seconds into the game, as Jacob Graves' shot trickled across the line for the 1-0 lead. After a mid-period penalty against the Gladiators, the Swamp Rabbits leveled the game at 1-1, as Josh McKechney tipped Bobby Russell's power-play shot into the net for his fourth of the season. 

In the second period, despite being outshot 8-7, Greenville took a 2-1 lead at 9:40, as Russell fed Carter Souch a breakout pass that Souch used to snipe his team-leading sixth goal of the season into the net. 

Greenville killed off a mid-period penalty in the third period, keeping itself in front despite a number of chances for the Gladiators. Throughout the third, Greenville's goaltender, Ryan Bednard, stopped 13 shots, securing the win for the Rabbits. Bednard finished the game with 26 saves on 27 shots and earned his fourth straight win to start the season.
