The Comets re-lit their previous flame.
Making a statement on Tuesday against Central Bucks East, the Comets field hockey team went about the business of winning again, crushing their opponents by a score of 6-0.
Coach Matt Soto attested to their success, saying the girls are extremely focused and driven.
“I give our players a lot of credit. They didn’t want to be outdone again,” Soto said.
The Comets, coming off a loss to Hershey in the district finals, 1-0, during which the Comets had 29 corners but no goals, seemed determined not to get into the negative category on their way to state competition.
“We obviously practiced scoring a lot the day before,” Soto explained.
The Comets look to their quarterfinals match-up with state powerhouse team, Emmaus.
That squad handed Penn Manor field hockey one of only their two losses this season.
“They’re a good program from bottom up. Their coach is great, and a really smart guy,” said Soto.
“We have to keep them out of the circle. We out-shot and out-played them last time but we lost. We have to capitalize on our opportunities,” Soto said.
The Comets’ quarterfinals match-up with Emmaus will be played on Saturday at Exeter High School.
