Comets 3 - Watchung Hills 2
As a last minute addition to the schedule, the Comets would be facing Watchung Hills. Watchung Hills plays in a very competitive division, and their record can be a little misleading. Even though they do not have a lot of wins, they are a very solid team. This was going to be a good game to get the Comets up to speed for the playoffs.
The Comets jumped onto the score board first with 2 very important goals. The first goal gave an assist to Jack Marut, which pushed him to pass Steve Celentano's record for most points scored by a Hackensack player. The second goal was scored by Austin Holmes. His first of the season! Congrats to both players.
It seamed that the Comets were in good control of the game, but then some sloppy plays let Watchung Hills back into the game to tie it up 2-2. Hopefully the Comets have learned their lesson, to not let this happen again.
The game was tied up to the end of the 3rd period, when Matt Carroll scored with less than a minute left, to give them the lead and eventually the win. Next stop, the playoffs at the Ice Vault!
