Comets 6 - Wayne Hills 2
It was the last game of a 3 game holiday weekend, and the Comets really needed those 2 points. Well they got them. The Comets came out stronger against a younger, smaller Wayne Hills team, who has been struggling this season.
After the Comets went up to a 3-0 lead after a strong first period, the Comets coaches felt it was a good opportunity to get Billy Regan into the game. At the start of the second period, it looked as if the Comets were a little too comfortable, and a misplayed puck found it's way onto a Wayne Hills stick. From just inside the face off circle the Wayne Hills player shot the puck just past Billy.
After shaking off the goal, Billy's play was solid and the Comets regained control of the game. The Comets finished with a 6-2 win over Wayne Hills, in a game that found ice time being shared amongst the entire roster. It was a great chance for all the players to contribute.
And better yet, the Comets finished with gaining 5 out of a possible 6 points. Now they have to turn their focus to the upcoming weekend with 2 tough games. It starts with a game Saturday against the very strong Ramapo team, and then the next day is Kinnelon, another tough opponent. Stay warm, and we'll see you at the rink!
