Sunday afternoon skate against South Carolina: the Atlanta Gladiators rattle the 'Rays with their late rally for a 2-1 win

Preview: South Carolina Stingrays (33-21-2-1/69 pts/6th in the Eastern Conference) vs Atlanta Gladiators (18-36-3-1/40 pts/14th in the Eastern Conference)

The Sunday afternoon (March 10, 2024 at 3pm EST) "skate" at the Gas South District features the Atlanta Gladiators hosting the South Carolina Stingrays. With a .500 record over their past 10 games (5-5-0-0) and within striking distance of a playoff spot, the 'Rays are looking to steal a win on the road. On offense, they'll look to Austin Magera (22 goals/36 assists/58 points) and Jack Adams (19 goals/33 assists/52 points) to put pressure on Glads' goaltender Gustavs Davis Grigals and the team defense.

Atlanta counters with team leaders MIcah Miller (21 goals/17 assists/38 points) and Jackson Pierson (13 goals/21 assists/34 points) as the team looks to generate positive momentum down the stretch as they have 1 win in their last 10 games.

Despite their current stretch, the team's focus, chemistry, and work ethic are ever present. During our pregame interview prior to their team meeting, Jackson Pierson speaks with us on the team's character and areas of focus for today along with lessons learned during the 2023-24 season.
