The Missouri Comets earned their second victory in St. Charles in seven days. After winning by 21 points last weekend, the team had to work a little harder tonight to walk out with a 12-10 overtime win. Stefan St. Louis scored his first goal of the year in overtime to give the Comets the win.
Yesterday the Missouri Comets announced that they had re-signed three more players from last year's team ahead of the start of this season. They announced that Vahid Assadpour, Stefan St. Louis, and Danny Waltman were all returning to the team. Combine this with the recent announcements on the return of Coady Andrews and Milan Ivanovic along with Bryan Perez and the new signing of Alex Megson and the roster is filling in for the Comets.
The 2012-2013 Missouri Comets set some high goals for themselves at the beginning of the year. They nearly accomplished all of them tonight after jumping out to a 4-0 halftime lead in Game Two of the MISL Championship against the Baltimore Blast. The Blast scored four straight goals in the second half, and held off a Comets comeback attempt to become the 2013 MISL Champions.
The Comets and Blast played a fast paced first quarter but it was the second quarter that did the Comets in tonight in the first game of the MISL championship series at the Independence Events Center. The Blast out scored the Comets 8-0 in the second as they completely out played the Comets and hit on the counter, putting on a bit of a clinic on both ends of the field.
With playoff seeding on the line, the Comets traveled to Chicago to finish their regular season against the Soul. The Comets needed a single win to ensure themselves of the third seed in the 2013 MISL Playoffs. It took more than four quarters, but Byron Alvarez scored three minutes into the overtime period to give the Comets the 8-6 win against the Chicago Soul.
The Missouri Comets have been fighting to get themselves back to .500 for a while now. Each time they get close to the .500 mark they end up falling back down. Tonight the Missouri Comets again got themselves back to .500 with a 12-11 win over the Rochester Lancers at the Independence Events Center. the previous 3 meetings between these teams this season has seen the winning team get at least a hattrick.
The Missouri Comets broke up the "good old boys" finals of the past few seasons. After the Baltimore Blast took care of the Chicago Soul last night in Baltimore and the Milwaukee win at the Independence Events Center it looked like the league was on it's way to a third straight Baltimore vs Milwaukee finals series.
Twice on Sunday, the Milwaukee Wave were seconds away from advancing to the Major Indoor Soccer League finals.
But they just couldn't close out the persistent Missouri Comets.
Leo Gibson scored with 37 seconds left to give the Comets a 9-8 victory in Game 2 of the teams' semifinal series, and Byron Alvarez drove home the game-winner with 4 seconds remaining as Missouri won the subsequent mini-game 5-4 at U.
The Milwaukee Wave pulled off an incredible comeback Thursday night to seize control of their Major Indoor Soccer League semifinal playoff series.
Hewerton capped a second-half hat trick with the tying goal with 22 seconds left in regulation and 39-year-old Giuliano Oliviero scored the game-winner 8:48 into overtime as the Wave stunned the Missouri Comets 12-10 in Independence, Mo.
The Comes had a good start to their first round playoff match up against the Milwaukee Wave, but couldn't make it stand up. Missouri jumped out to a 10-0 lead over the Wave by the early point of the third quarter, but couldn't keep the lead and ended up falling 12-10 in overtime against the Wave putting themselves into a tough situation needing to win the game in Milwaukee Sunday and the mini game after.
The Comets haven't had the season that many were expecting this year when the season started, but they're a step closer to the playoffs after a 17-9 win over the Milwaukee Wave at the Independence Events Center today. The win puts the Comets' magic number for clinching a playoff spot at 1 with 3 games left.
The Missouri Comets might have thought they were close to ending the Milwaukee Wave's winning streak, as they pulled within two points of the Major Indoor Soccer League leaders early in the fourth quarter Saturday night.
The Wave, though, had other ideas.
Israel Sesay and Hewerton each scored his second goal of the night as Milwaukee poured in the game's final five goals and surged to a 29-15 victory in front of 5,602 at U.

It wasn't easy, but the Comets clinched a playoff spot for the third straight year with a 15-11 win over the Wichita Wings that also clinched the Turnpike trophy for the Comets, winning the season series 4 games to 2.
Things didn't start out well for the Comets though. For the third straight game, the Comets were shutout in the first quarter.
The Comets blew a chance to clinch a playoff spot and the 3rd seed tonight against and undermanned Chicago Soul. The Comets offense was punchless as the Soul raced out to a 13-0 lead before the Comets grabbed their only goal with 6 seconds left in the game. They'll still be able to clinch a playoff spot on Sunday against the Wichita Wings, but will have to wait until Wednesday the 27th for the chance to clinch 3rd when they travel to Chicago.
The Missouri Comets today announced that they have a new head coach. Vlatko Andonovski, the team's assistant coach the last few years has been named the team's new head coach. Andonovski replaces Kim Rontved, who had coached the team since their rebirth in 2010. Andonovski will now pull double duty as head coach of both the Comets and FC Kansas City.
