Last week’s matchup between these two teams saw the Comets scoring early and often. In a complete reversal of the script, the Lancers’ Alan McGreal scored the first goal a little over two minutes into the game. The sluggish start continued for the Comets as Rochester’s Doug Miller knocked in four straight goals. Before the half was over, Missouri was down 15-0.
The team showed a little more life in the second half as they pushed the pressure to try and force some scoring. Ramone Palmer broke the shutout with 6:47 remaining in the third quarter, but forward Mauricio Salles answered right back to keep the Lancers ahead 17-2. Assadpour, Robert Palmer and Ryan Junge each had tallies in the final quarter. Robert Palmer’s was his first in the MISL. Ultimately, the Lancers defended well when they needed to and held on for the 17-8 victory.
