This game was tough ... in more ways than one! This game was physical from the start. There were a ton of hard hits, given out by both teams! There were some questionable calls ... or missed calls, but it was still an incredibly exciting game!
The Comets went down 0-1 and were having a tough time getting shots to the net to tie it up. Eventually Thomas would tie it up scoring from behind the goal line, banking it off the goalie!
Unfortunately after a couple of miscues with the puck, Clifton would again pull ahead. The end of the game was incredibly exciting with plenty of pressure from the Comets, and even a pulled goalie in the last minute of the game, but it was Clifton that would hold on to the lead at the end of the game.
The Comets still need 2 more wins to make it to States. Maybe if they can play with the same intensity as the last 2 games, and get more pucks on the net, they will have better results. They're next game is this Friday against Bayonne. It will be "Seniors Night" where we will honor the graduating Seniors. Please come out and show your support for the Comets! Let's fill up the stands! See you Friday!
