Ness Earns First Win in Net with Comets Outshooting St. Johns 26-7

It took ten minutes for Hillcrest to strike. After a Marcus Fluge pass up the middle of the field, Eirik Primavera juked defenders to place a strike in the right corner of the net. Eighteen minutes later Primavera attacked the right goal line, dropping a perfect pass to Iver Honningdal who touched the ball past the Johnnie defender to put the Comets up 2-0. Honnindgal put more force behind his second goal, scored at the 32nd minute. A rocket from the top of the box sailed into the net off a pass from Primavera.

Comets Closeout Chargers with Old School Defense

Former Comets are liking the throwback look of the games Hillcrest is battling out on the court lately. In their home opener, the Comets smothered Brandon-Evansville, going on a 19-5 run to open the game as the athletic Chargers went to the bench in timeout after timeout to figure out how to break the Comets' defense. The second half held a different story for the Chargers.

Newman is 4th Player in 4 Years to Enter 1000 Point Club

Many might not see beyond Newman's smiling face as he holds his 1000 point scoring sign. But what should follow in the conversation on scoring is the quiet confidence and focus that Kyler leads the team with. While scoring 1000 points is an incredible feat, the more impressive action may be what happens in the huddle at mid-court before each game.
