The first half doomed the Comets varsity football team to a 1-2 start and a Friday night loss to the Carlinville Cavaliers. Behind a very strong running game the Cavaliers jumped ahead 28-0 at half time.
The second half was a different story, with the Comets and Cavaliers exchanging touchdowns, but the Comets were never able to start digging out of the hole left by the first half. In the end the Comets lost 56-26 and dropped to 1-2.
This week is Homecoming week at GHS, and on Friday the Comets will play host to the Hillsboro Hilltoppers and try to get to even their record to 2-2. You can hear this Friday night’s game live on WGEL Radio and streaming at wgel.com.
