COMET FOOTBALL GOES TO 6-1 WITH WIN OVER STAUNTON
It was raining, cold, muddy and downright miserable weather, but that couldn’t stop the Greenville Comets football team from winning its 6th game of the year at Staunton on Friday. The Comets earned the 26-20 victory against a very good Staunton team despite their now 3-4 record. The Comets are now guaranteed a playoff game and will next play this Friday at home for senior night. The Comets will wrap up their regular season on the road at Vandalia the following week.
The Comets soccer team defeated Vandalia Saturday, 7-0. Goals were scored by Dwight Sanders, with two, Toby Gamino, Shea Brendel, Ryan Mueller, Will Schaufelberger, and Trammel Horton. Assists were credited to Sanders, with two, Gamino, Schaufelberger, Jeremiah Brannon, Mueller, and Nicolai Sorensen. Lincoln Siebert and Nicholas Watterson shared the shutout in goal, with Watterson recording 1 save in the win. The Comets finish the regular season with a record of 13-8 (5-3 in conference).
