GREENVILLE, SC - Two third period goals were not enough for the Greenville Swamp Rabbits as they fell 3-2 to the Atlanta Gladiators at Bon Secours Wellness Arena on Saturday night.

In the second, the Gladiators scored the opening goal, which was reviewed and would stand, as Gabe Guertler tipped the puck into the Swamp Rabbits net at 6:16. Atlanta added a second goal, as Mike Pelech skipped a puck to Cody Sylvester who directed the puck in the net for the 2-0 advantage at 15:22.

Greenville got back into the game at 2:27 of the third as Swamp Rabbits Captain Frank Hora scored his first of the season, before Atlanta regained a two-goal lead at Eric Neiley scored on a shorthanded breakaway at 4:03. Greenville responded with a Tanner Eberle shorthanded snipe at 15:22 to bring the score line to 3-2. With their net empty, the Swamp Rabbits were denied late chances by the Gladiators, who held on for the victory.
