With all the interest in the Varsity team, let's not forget the JV squad did have a game last week. This team is made up of 3 freshmen, 5 sophomores, and 1 junior. The JV squad will try to get a few games in this season, but it is difficult since most of the JV players are also regulars on the Varsity team.
The JV team's season opener was against River Dell. Starting the game with only 8 skaters, the Comets knew this game was going to be all about conditioning. The Comets started off strong with a goal by Justin Sese, and with solid goal tending were looking very good. Unfortunately with one player being injured in the middle of the game, the JV team was now down to 7 skaters, against a much larger River Dell bench. River Dell came back with 2 goals to take the lead and eventually the win.
For their first outing the JV squad should be proud of how they played and how they were able to hang in there with such a small squad. Photos of this game can be found in the "Comets Photo" link.
