A "not so great" tie ...

Comets 4 - Wayne Hills 4

Well the intensity that seems to be inconsistent lately, would remain that way for the Wayne Hills game. Wayne Hills has been in last place for most if not all of the season, and did not give the Comets too much competition in the first meeting this season. The Comets won that game 6-2, while giving ice time to the players that normally don't see a lot.

That was not the case last night. Wayne Hills, was coming off a HUGE game against local rival Wayne Valley, where even though they lost 0-2, it was almost like a victory to them.Wayne Valley is in second place and the score was more like 1-0, since the second gaol was an empty netter. That's a pretty close game.

The Comets knew not to take Wayne Hills lightly this game. They knew that Hills was pumped and running on emotion. The Comets knew they needed this win, to try to build some strong momentum for the remaining of the season and heading into the playoffs. The Comets played strong but only managed to take a 2-1 lead into the second period. The game remained a one goal game going into the third period with a score of 3-2. The Comets failed to pull away and take WH out of the game. Instead WH kept chipping away, and with only a few moments left the game was tied 4-4. Not exactly what the COmets had in mind. To make matters worse, there were two breakaways for Wayne Hills within the last minute of the game.

The Comets managed to walk away with a tie, but just barely. Not exactly the kind of momentum the Comets were hoping to gain, especially with 2 very tough opponents scheduled this week. Middletown North is Tuesday, and Howell is Friday night. It is now time for the Comets to show what kind of heart they have!
No matter what, the Comets family and fans are loyal. The turnouts through out the season have been great. Thank you to all for coming out!
