Greenville entered the game with early offensive pressure but saw the Everblades break the scoreless frame at the 12:49 mark, as Sean Josling scored his sixth of the season. Greenville ended the period with a successful kill of a major penalty to Anthony Beauchamp for boarding, taking the 1-0 deficit to the break. 

In the second, Greenville answered Josling's goal just 1:40 as Carter Souch scored his team-leading 10th of the season after the Everblades turned the puck over in their defensive end. Shortly after, at 2:27, Mark Louis threw the puck into the Florida net for his first goal as a Swamp Rabbits, giving Greenville the 2-1 lead. At 6:45, Andrew Fyten tied the game for the Everblades, before Oliver Chau re-established Florida's advantage at 11:42. With less than two seconds to play in the period, Logan Lambdin added to Florida's lead, sending the game into the second intermission with the Everblades leading 4-2.

Early in the third, Bobo Carpenter extended Florida's lead to three goals, scoring at the 3:17 mark. At 3:43, Tanner Eberle responded for Greenville with his seventh of the season, cutting the Florida lead down to a pair of goals. At 14:06, Brannon McManus fed Souch a cross ice pass that Souch buried into the net for his second of the game. Despite a late push by Greenville, Florida saw Patrick Holway score the empty net goal for the eventual 6-4 final.
