The Greenville Comets won for the second straight week on the road Saturday in the Class 3A playoffs.

GHS recorded a 26-14 victory at Pleasant Plains and will be at home this Saturday in a quarterfinal game.

The Comets trailed twice in the first half, but it was 14 to 14 at halftime. The GHS defense shut down the potent Pleasant Plains offense in the second half.

The winning TD came on an interception by Drew Frey which he returned about 30 yards for the score in the fourth quarter. Late in the game, Jack Woods scored on a 4-yard run to secure the victory.

Frey scored three of his teams touchdowns, two on passes from Wil Harnetiaux in the opening half. The second one, along with the extra point kick by Brian Prater, tied the game just three second before halftime.
