01.21.13 Comets 1 - Fair Lawn 5
With the Comets coming off a string of wins, and facing a team that they loss in just the last 7 seconds of their last meeting, there was a lot of positive anticipation for this game! Fair Lawn took the lead in the first period, but the Comets fought back to tie up the game. However Fair Lawn would pull away to a 2-1 lead by the end of the first.
This game was definitely more physical than the last few games the Comets have played. Some cheap shots were called ... some weren't .... as shown in one of the photos below. Can anyone find the uncalled Cross Check in the following photos?
Fair Lawn would end the second period with a 3-1 lead going into the 3rd. The Comets came out flying in the 3rd, pushing, trying to get that goal to put them within one. They got close when a shot rang off the post. Soon after Fair Lawn would score their 4th goal late in the 3rd, quickly followed by the 5th. That is how it would end.
Now the Comets have to build on the positives of this game (even though it was a loss) and bring the same intensity to the River Dell game this Friday! Let's go Comets!
