The Comets opened their season at home against the much-improved Rampage. Behind two goals from head coach/player Hewerton, the Rampage surprised their hosts with three 4th quarter goals to win 5-3.

Kansas City will have to shut down Hewerton and forward Gordy Gurson if they want to seek revenge on Saturday. Gurson has eleven goals, five assists and has been named to the MASL’s Team of the Week each of the past three weeks.

On Sunday, the Comets host the Baltimore Blast in a rematch of the past two Eastern Division Championships. The Comets are also happy to host the annual ‘Salute to Service game. The jerseys that will be worn by the team will be auctioned throughout the game on the concourse, with proceeds benefitting the Cars 4 Heroes program.

The Baltimore Blast sit on top of the MASL’s Eastern Conference and are a game and a half up on the rest of their division. They are currently on a two-game winning streak after dispatching their division rival Florida Tropics in two straight games.

Forward Tony Donatelli leads the team with 12 points (4G, 8A). William Vanzela has started all four games for the Blast and leads the league in Goals Against Average.

The Comets are fresh off their 6-0 shutout victory over the Chicago Mustangs last weekend. For their defensive efforts, John Sosa and Stephen Paterson were named to MASL Team of the Week by league personnel. Paterson was voted the MASL’s Player of the Week by fans for his shut out of the Mustangs.

At halftime Sunday, the Comets have partnered with the Cars 4 Heroes program to reward a special and deserving veteran with a car. The team is also honored to witness a special Armed Forces Swearing-In Ceremony during the break.

Fans are invited to watch Saturday’s game at a special Fan-Hosted Watch Party at Coach’s Bar & Grill on 103rd & Wornall. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. CT.
