They just can’t find a way to lose.
The Comets field hockey team easily handled Twin Valley High School in the pouring rain Tuesday night. The rain remained steady and so did the Comets by winning the game 4-0.
Penn Manor started out the first half with two goals by Jill Witmer which quickly took Twin Valley’s hopeful attitudes out of the game.
After putting up two goals early, Penn Manor ended the half 2-0. All the Comets needed to do was to protect the lead and start preparing for the next district playoff game.
Not only did the Comets protect the lead, they increased it with another goal from Witmer who completed a hat-trick. Renee Suter also tucked a ball beautifully into the net to bring the score to 4-0.
The ladies on both sides showed no signs of slowing down due to the rain as they battled until the final whistle.
The Comets advanced their district run to the quarter-finals and are unsure of the opponent, but will play Saturday, October 31.
