Gladiators Earn 4-1 Win Over Greenville

After a scoreless opening period, the second frame began favorably for the Gladiators as Brock Higgs was able to take advantage of the first powerplay opportunity for the home team.

Higgs potted home an Eric Neiley shot that rebounded off the chest of Greenville goaltender, Jeff Malcolm. Thomas Frazee was credited with the secondary assist and the goal was Higgs' sixth of the year.

Atlanta would capitalize on their second powerplay as well with just under eight minutes left in the middle period. Nolan Descoteaux, from the point, found Nathan Condon on the back side of Malcolm who deflected it between the legs of the Greenville Goaltender. The tally was Condon’s third of the season and was assisted by Neiley in addition to Descoteaux’s first point since joining Atlanta this past Thursday.

The Gladiators would add a third goal from Daniel Bahntge with 3:13 left in the second period. A Justin Buzzeo shot rebounded right to Bahntge in the far circle and he quickly slapped it into the upper-right corner for his second goal of the season. The goal also marks the fourth point of the year for the Westlake, Ohio native.

The Swamp Rabbits would tally their first goal 3:52 into the third period off the skate of Scott Fleming. Michael St. Croix took a shot that rebounded off Gladiators goaltender, Kent Patterson, and ricocheted off Fleming’s blade and into the net. The goal was the Plainfield, Ontario native’s third of the year.

J.T. Barnett would add an empty-net, short-handed goal to seal the win for the Gladiators with 2:10 remaining in the third period. Greenville misplayed the puck on the 6-on-4 man advantage that led to Barnett breaking away for the easy score to make it a 4-1 final.  Atlanta increased their point total to 15 on the campaign with the victory and dropped the Swamp Rabbits to 4-8-0.

Atlanta Falls to Adirondack 4-1

Coming off two consecutive lopsided losses, the Atlanta Gladiators struck first early in the first period, on their first shot against the Adirondack Thunder. Max Everson capitalized on the first powerplay opportunity for the Gladiators 2:45 into the first frame with a slap shot from distance that best Thunder goaltender, Ken Appleby. It marked the third goal of the season for the rookie while Derek Nesbitt and Eric Neiley each picked up assists on the play.

It didn’t take long for the Thunder to equalize. Just over three minutes after Atlanta’s goal, the puck took an unfortunate bounce off the boards and was mishandled by Gladiators goaltender Matt Ginn behind the net.  Adirondack’s Mitchell Heard found it at the top of the crease for an easy shot into an open net. The score was the Ontario native’s fourth goal and eighth point of the season.

Adirondack was able to take the lead just 20 seconds later after a turnover in the defensive zone for Atlanta. The Thunder’s Kyle Flanagan was able to intercept a pass and found his teammate, Greg Wolfe, who maneuvered across the face of Ginn's net and beat him on his glove side for his second goal of the season. Flanagan notched his eighth assist of the year on the play.

The second period saw its only goal come off the stick of Adirondack forward, Flanagan. Michael Kirkpatrick led a 2-on-1 break on the left side and passed to the trailing Flanagan who blasted a wrist shot over the glove of Ginn. The score marks Flanagan’s first goal for the rookie out of Canton, New York.

Flanagan would add an empty-net goal to seal the game with 52 seconds left in the third period. The score was the second of the game and his third point of the night. Mike Bergin and David Shield were credited with the assists.

Atlanta Stings South Carolina

Atlanta Stings South Carolina with 5-3 Win

Atlanta opened up the scoring with a powerplay goal exactly four minutes into the contest. Thomas Frazee was parked in front of the goal and had a Brock Higgs shot ricochet off his chest into the net past Stingrays starting goalie Mark Dekanich. Derek Nesbitt also earned an assist on Frazee’s first as a Gladiator giving the veteran points in three straight games.

Tyler Shiplo added to the Atlanta lead with a deflection notch late in period one. Ian Barteaux corralled a pass at the point from Frazee and then propelled a wrist shot on net that Shiplo redirected into the goal for his first tally of the season. Frazee recorded his sixth point and second muti-point game on the young campaign with the helper.

After a scoreless second came and went, South Carolina got on the board for the first time just over two minutes into the third period. Bobby Shea scored his first of the year on the rebound of a Max Sauve shot. Defensemen Brendan Ellis also received an assist on the first powerplay goal of the season for the Stingrays.

Atlanta responded quickly at the 5:35 mark as Nesbitt completed a tic-tac-toe passing play with linemates Garry Nunn and Frazee. With the goal, Nesbitt now has five points in his last three games. Frazee earned his third point of the afternoon on the play and now has seven points on the young season to lead the Gladiators.

Nate Condon picked up his first goal as a Gladiator on a breakaway score. Todd Fiddler chipped a puck into the neutral zone where Condon split the defense the walked in all alone and collected his third point in as many games.

South Carolina got two quick back-to-back goals to decrease the Gladiators lead with three minutes to go in the game. Andrew Johnston and Stephan Vigier each tallied to bring the Stingrays to within one.

Brad Navin spoiled the Stingray comeback hopes with an empty net marker with :16 seconds left in the game. The tally was the first career goal for the product of the University of Wisconsin and gave Condon his second point of the game on the assist.  With the 5-3 victory, Atlanta improved to 2-2-1 with five points on the season and dropped the Stingrays to 1-3-1 and three points.
