The first period saw Greenville's goaltender, Ryan Bednard, tested early and often, as South Carolina outshot the Swamp Rabbits 11-5 in the opening 20 minutes. 

The second period began with a scoreless game still intact, but the scoreline changed at 2:22, as Nikita Pavlychev scored his seventh of the season, putting Carter Souch's rebounding shot into the net, for the 1-0 Greenville lead. Late in the period, at 18:57, the Stingray answered back with Jack Adams' fifth of the season to send the game to the third period at 1-1. 

In the third, Greenville continued to remain atop the league's road penalty-kill standings, killing off a short 5-on-3 and a four minute 5-on-4 power-play to keep the game tied at 1-1. Late in the game, at 17:03, South Carolina's Michael Kim scored the eventual game winner, putting the puck off the post and into the net.

The Swamp Rabbits travel to Gas South Arena in Duluth, Georgia on Saturday night for a 7 p.m meeting with the Atlanta Gladiators.
