The South Carolina Stingrays continue their 2022-23 campaign today as they head to Gas South Arena to take on the Atlanta Gladiators. Tonight’s contest will be the second trip to Atlanta in the last week where the Stingrays won 7-3 behind five power play goals.

LAST TIME OUTThe South Carolina Stingrays held off the Greenville Swamp Rabbits at the North Charleston Coliseum on Sunday by a final score of 4-3. Josh Wilkins netted his seventh goal of the season, followed by Carter Allen’s first professional tally to tie the game at the end of the first period. Bear Hughes gave South Carolina a lead in the second period and Anthony Del Gaizo’s power play goal in the third frame served as the game-winning goal.
