The game began similarly to Saturday's meeting between the Swamp Rabbits and the Ghost Pirates in Savannah, as Vincent Marleau scored his eight of the season at 3:17, giving Savannah the opening lead for the second night in a row. Greenville responded at 4:41, as Ryan Francis deflected the puck off his skate and into the net for his fourth of the season. At 7:19, Simon Pinard pushed the puck across the line to regain Savannah's lead, the lead they would carry into the intermission.

After a scoreless second period, the Ghost Pirates added to their lead as Ross Armour netted his second of the season from a 2-on-1 zone entry. Later in the period, with the Greenville net empty, Pinard scored a power-play goal to solidify the 4-1 scoreline and the first Savannah win over the Swamp Rabbits this season, having lost the first five meetings.
