Comets hope young pieces come together

LELAND – It’s tough to replace the production of the state’s all-time leading scorer.  That’s what the Leland Comets learned in 2017, in the wake of Libby Munoz’s graduation.

While the early part of the season was difficult, and the Comets were beset with a number of injuries to key players, they have been pleasantly surprised with how the younger classes of players have stepped in to fill the void.

"Everybody had to step up.  We weren’t relying upon one person.  It was everybody’s job to step up their game,” said Senior Goalkeeper Kira Metcalf.   

“We’ve finally gotten into a groove, and we’ve been able to work hard, and step up our play.  We’ve really been working on communicating, and looking ahead, focusing on where we’re going to go next."

The Comets play Burt Lake Northern Michigan Christian Academy on Tuesday evening in the opening round of Districts, if they were to win, they’d advance to face Leelanau County rival Glen Lake in a District Semifinal at Suttons Bay at Thursday.
