Andrew Hoxie, scored the first goal within minutes of the game’s start, leaving the Wings with a 2-0 lead. Nearly nine minutes into the game, Hoxie scored again, putting the Wings up 4-0.

Comets midfielder Assadpour would then tie the game at 4-4 with 4:41 left in the first quarter. Bryan Perez, midfielder for the Wings answered back with 1:13 left in the first quarter taking back the lead at 6-4. Then, with only 20 seconds left in the quarter Will John of the Comets tied it up again at 6 apiece.
During the second quarter, the game slowed down. Byron Alvarez was the only scorer with a penalty kick for the Comets which stole the lead with their fourth goal making the score 6-8. Although there was only one goal scored, the second quarter was filled with aggressive play and several fouls. Seemingly frantic for a goal the Wings failed to score before half-time arrived.
The third quarter started quickly with the Comets’ Bryon Alvarez scoring again within the first minute of the second half, expanding the Comets lead by four making the score 6-10. Shortly after that, Geison answered with a goal for the Wings, cutting down the lead 8-10. With seven minutes left in the third quarter Comets’ midfielder Lucas Rodriguez scored, allowing the Comets to again lead by four. Comets forward Leo Gibson bumped the lead up to six points with a two-point goal making the score 8-14 with 4:40 left to go in the third quarter.
Wings attempted to ramp up their play in the fourth quarter, resulting in Wings’ forward Hoxie to score his third goal of the night only two minutes into the fourth quarter cutting the Comets lead to four at 10-14. As hard as the Wings tried fouls and penalties hindered them from any goal scoring. With three minutes left in the game, Comets’ midfielder Assadpour shot a three-point goal. Lemons, who replaced Sanaldo as the sixth attacker, could not make it back to the goal quick enough and the three-point shot went in making the lead 10-17. With less than two minutes left in the game, Brian Harris, a defender for the Comets, scored the last two-point goal of the night, sealing a win for the Comets’ with a final score of 10-19.
The Wings will continue play with their home schedule on Friday, Nov. 9 at 7:35 p.m. against the Milwaukee Wave.
