GREENVILLE KNOCKING HEADS WITH STINGRAYS

Greenville Road WarriorsBY: Ray Schmitt, Voice of the Greenville Road Warriors

The Greenville Road Warriors wrap up their regular season schedule tonight by paying the South Carolina Stingrays a visit. A Road Warriors win could potentially eliminate South Carolina from playoff contention.

The Road Warriors (41-24-6, 88 pts.) visit South Carolina (36-28-7, 79 pts.) today for the 16th, and final, meeting between the clubs this season. Fans can follow the action on America One or listening at  Greenvilleroadwarriors.com. Greenville is 12-3-0 this season against the Stingrays which includes a 5-2-0 mark at the North Charleston Coliseum. Tonight is the seventh of seven games between the Road Warriors and Stingrays in March. South Carolina’s 3-2 win last night snapped Greenville’s six-game win streak in the rivalry that dated back to February 7, 2012. Victories for either side have been hard to come by as five of the prior six meetings in March have been decided by only a goal, and three of those games have gone into overtime or a shootout. The last two games between the teams in North Charleston have been won in shootouts by Greenville.
