The Greenville Comets beat the Vandalia Vandals Friday night, 26-7 to finish the regular season 9-0 for the third straight year. The Comets took a quick lead when on their first offensive play, running back Brain Doll scampered 66 yards for a TD.

 

The Comets eventually built a 26 point lead in a game that was played on a sloppy field. The Comet defense was stout again as they did not let the Vandals score until the 4th quarter.
