The Comets are currently in the middle of their 2018-19 season. They are in second place of the South Central Conference. The team had its second straight win after beating the Missisauga MetroStars 10-8.

The Silverstein Eye Center Arena was not as crowded as it normally is on that Sunday afternoon. However, the fans there witnessed an energetic match with many goals. During the first half, the home team set a high tempo and opened the score with three minutes. After the first goal of the game, the MetroStars opened their defense trying to score and the match became intense. At the end of the first thirty minutes, the scoreboard showed a 5-4 advantage for the MetroStars.

When the teams came back from halftime, the players showed the same level of intensity. With four minutes left in the third quarter, Comets forward Ramone Palmer scored the fifth goal and the game was on. But, the home team could not keep the same consistency and saw the MetroStars led the game by one goal by the end of the third quarter.

The last fifteen minutes started, and the Comets tied the game with the midfielder Bryan Perez, but saw the MetroStars take the lead once again after an outstanding shot from the forward Molham Badouli. After the forwards Adam James, Leo Gibson and Kiel Williams score three goals, the Comets could get their second straight win after the 10-8.

After the match, Comets forward Guilherme Gomes pointed out that the team made the match harder than it supposed to be, but was satisfied with the win.

“The victory tonight was important for us because our season has been like a roller coaster, so it helps have some type of streak and stability,” Gomes said.

The comets will face the Florida Tropics on Feb. 2 at the Silverstein Arena for their seventh home game of the season.
