TOSTI: RABBITS SINK ADMIRALS SHIPS

      VERSUS       Swamp Rabbits Respond to Overtake Admirals

Greenville scores four goals in second half of tonight’s game to earn fifth straight win at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena

BY: Brian Tosti, Greenville Swamp Rabbits

Greenville, SCThe Greenville Swamp Rabbits (15-10-2-0), proud ECHL affiliate of the New York Rangers and the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack, toppled the Norfolk Admirals (5-18-4-0) tonight 5-4 scoring four consecutive goals for the victory. Spiro Goulakos netted two goals in the win and earned the number one star. Greenville has won the last five games at home on the Sandlapper Securities Rink. The Swamp Rabbits are three points out of second place in the South Division behind the Orlando Solar Bears.

After controlling the rapid start of the game, Norfolk earned a pair of goals to put Greenville in an early 2-0 hole. Jaedon Descheneau put the Admirals up, scoring both tallies before the 10-minute mark of the opening period. The first, in transition, was the first short of the night for Norfolk 3:33 into the game. The second was deflected off Josh Brittain’s shot from the blue line six minutes later.

Greenville’s response was quick. Goulakos netted his ECHL leading ninth goal from the point less than a minute later. The slap shot rang off the post and into the net so quickly it caught the referee off guard and would need to be reviewed. The confirmation of the goal meant the first point of Michael Turner’s rookie campaign, earning an assist. Continue reading
