8/15 OHSAA Preseason Invite 3rd   CANCELLED
8/28 Moeller Invite    

The Mason boys cross country team opened their season just down the street at the Moeller Prime Time Invitational held at Christ's Church in Mason. The varsity ran under the lights on a beautiful evening. The Comets finished third behind two of the top teams in Ohio - Lakota West and St. Xavier.

Running a rather young and inexperienced team, the Comets competed admirably but know they have much work to do from here.  Top scorers were Junior Aiden Amshoff, Sophomore Isaac Schachleiter, Senior Brendan Pitcher, Junior Colin Campbell and Sophomore Keith Neuburger.  Rounding out the top seven Comets were Sophomore Braeden Fedders and Junior Dylan Plouffe.

The Comets head next door to Loveland next Saturday to do battle in the Loveland Invitational.  

9/5 Loveland Invite 2nd place  

The Loveland Invitational was highly successful for the boys cross country team this past Saturday. We held out our top 11 guys, saving them for greater glory down the road. Nevertheless, our boys stepped up well.

In the Varsity A race, we got out well and our scorers moved up. That’s how you wind up a scorer - getting out well and then moving up. We finished a strong second to state-ranked Loveland, beating local powers Turpin and Kings.

Actually, we were probably losing to Turpin with a mile to go, but some great finishes took care of the Spartans.  

Our first man was Freshman Jerry Xu in 11th place, Then a tight pack of Junior Patrick Theisen, Sophomore Aiden Markich and Freshman Max Liao came roaring in taking the 14th, 15th, and 16th places. The final scorer was Sophomore James Mroczka in 21st place. Juniors Anthony Balsly and Joseph Schuessler rounded out the top seven for Mason.


The Comets will defend their home turf this coming Saturday hosting the Mason Invitational.

This Friday and Saturday Mason CC will host the 47th Annual Mason Invitational. The event will be held at Corwin Nixon Park. This awesome meet is always a special time that features many top boys and girls teams and athletes from around the area. See the racing schedule below.

9/12 Mason Invite 2nd place  

The Mason Invitational!  What a great celebration of cross country, even in a pandemic! Our boosters are the best in the world!  Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you! What a great sight to see the Corwin-Nixon Park all dressed up and ready for action. The course looked great and ran well. So did all the other logistics.


Mason's Varsity A boys team finished in the runner up position, a mere 6 points behind Lakota West. The Firebirds had beaten the Comets by more than 50 points two weeks previous so this was a major step forward.

The Comets were led for the second meet in a row by Junior Aiden Amshoff in 6th place. Sophomore Isaac Schachleiter finished just behind him in 7th. Junior Alex DeRoussel made his season debut with a fine top ten finish. He was followed by a big breakthrough for Sophomore Braeden Fedders in 18th place with Junior Colin Campbell hot on his heels in 19th place to round out the scoring. The rest of the top seven for Mason were Juniors Dylan Plouffe and Jacob Messer.

Next Saturday, the Comets will split their squad between Milford and Eaton.

 

9/19 Milford Invite 1st place  

The Mason Boys Cross Country team traveled to the Milford Invitational on Saturday. The Comets took on all challengers and came away with a resounding win defeating second place Turpin by over 60 points.

Mason showed great team running by finishing with runners in 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th. Those places were nailed down by Sophomore Isaac Schachleiter, Junior Aiden Amshoff, Junior Alex DeRoussel, Senior Brendan Pitcher and Sophomore Braeden Fedders. Also running well for the Comets were Juniors Colin Campbel in 15th, Jacob Messer in 16th and Dylan Plouffe in 19th. 

 

9/19 Eaton Invite 3rd place  

The Comets sent a B Varsity squad to the Eaton Invitational where they finished a very fine 3rd place out of 13 teams. 


Next up: The varsity Comets will take the week off from racing to prepare for future meets while the JV Comets will be spread across three different meets, Lakota East, Princeton and Talawanda. 
9/26 East Invitational 3rd  
While the Boys CC Varsity A stayed home to train for future success, Mason sent the B Varsity to the Lakota East Invitational at VOA Park. Taking advantage of a fast course and cool temperatures, the Comets rolled to a fine third place showing, beating two teams who were state ranked. They got out well, sagged a little in the middle but finished very strong, highlighting their fitness and competitiveness.
The Comets were paced by Freshman Jerry Xu in 7th place running one of the fastest times in Mason Freshman history.  Freshman Max Liao was the 2nd man placing 14th. Next in were Junior Patrick Theisen, Sophomore James Mroczka, Senior Brennan Doran, Junior Anthonly Balsly and Sophomore Aidan Markich. 

Next up for the Comets is a JV meet at Lakota West on Tuesday and Saturday Invitationals at St. Xavier and Peninsula Woodridge.
10/3 Peninsula Woodridge Invite 3rd  

The Mason Boys Cross Country team took on Division 2 dynasty Woodridge at their invitational on Saturday.  Number 6 in D1, St. Ignatius also challenged the Comets.  Mason finished third behind these two powerhouses. They took on an extremely difficult course which will make them stronger in the coming Championship Season.

The Comets were led by Sophomore Isaach Schachletier and Junior Alex DeRoussel. Third to finish for the Comets was Freshman sensation Jerry Xu. Fourth and fifth scorers were Junior Jacob Messer and Senior Brendan Pitcher. Juniors Colin Campbell and Brady Messer ran the sixth and seventh best times for the Comets.


Mason will field a limited squad in a dual meet versus Anderson put on by Kings on Saturday, October 10th. 

 

10/10 vs. Anderson (B team)    

The Mason Comets kept the A Team home to train for the Championship Season and sent the B Team to take on Anderson at Kingswood Park. The Comets knew that the strong top three for Anderson needed to be broken up in order to secure the victory. 

Senior Jack Tumulty and Freshman Alex Carlin stepped up as heroes to take 3rd and 4th in the race, thus breaking up the Anderson sweep. With that in place, then the rest of the Comets sealed the deal with scorers Sophomore Grady Wilson, Junior Joseph Schuessler and Senior Kyle Harrison finishing in the next places.  Junior Anthony Balsly and Sophomore Cole Vernon rounded out the top seven for the Comets.

The 2020 GMC CC Championships are slated for Saturday, October 17th at VOA.Mason boys are the defending league champs and will be seeking their 6th consecutive league title and 10th since entering the GMC in 2007.

8/15 OHSAA Preseason Invite      
8/28 Moeller Invite 2nd  

This year's Moeller Primetime Invite was one for the ages.  Not because of the meet itself, but because of the parameters placed on the meet by the OHSAA and the board of health.  The restrictions were many, and it was strange to see athletes warming up in masks, but we were happy to get a meet.  Once the gun went off, it took a bit for everyone to remember how to race.  They were tentative, but quickly made their way to the front. 

The meet quickly became a dual meet between Loveland and Mason.  There were a few Sycamore and Ursula girls in the mix, but it was mostly the Tigers vs. The Comets.  Loveland has a formable team this year, and they were strong last year as well. They have a front runner that was hard to "cancel" out and so we did our best with pack running. 

The "pack' was huge this year, and we looked great.  The pack was led for a time by Manuella Capiello and then Kennedy Rader.  They took turns up front and pulled the others along.  We also got great production out of newcomer Advika Sumit who was our third runner overall, and Abby Burns who looked strong as well.  Jenna Harris picked up where she left off last year in XC and had a strong finish, placing in the top 10 along with Erica Fennimore and Macie Radcliffe.

The team has no super star this year, but a great pack, and it was fun to watch them together. Throughout the race the score was back and forth, with Loveland and Mason trading blows.  Ultimately, the Loveland team took the win, but only by a scant 2 points.  (which in XC is one girl passing another girl)  The team ran well, we battled hard and learned a few lessons.  I think next time we meet with Loveland we will give them an even better run for their money. 

Mason Girls CC competes this Saturday at the Loveland Invite.

9/5 Loveland Invite 2nd  

At the Loveland XC meet, held at Home of the Brave Park on Saturday, the Mason Girls XC team did well.  We could only run about 50% of our team, so we held some folks out and ran a split crew of some of our top people and some up-and-comers and they stepped up!!

The Comets took 2nd to the Loveland squad, but fought hard and kept it close. Carlie Condit led the way with a great time, and Abby Muglia was just behind her!  After her, we had Advika Sumit and the freshman duo of Sophia Goldschmidt and Grace Henson!!  Next was Ellie Bevan and Abby Burns along with a number of other girls who ran great!!  Props to Grace McKay who won the varsity B race and had a very fast time!!

Next up is the annual Mason Invitational at Corwin Nixon Park on Saturday, Sept. 12th.

This Friday and Saturday Mason CC will host the 47th Annual Mason Invitational. The event will be held at Corwin Nixon Park. This awesome meet is always a special time that features many top boys and girls teams and athletes from around the area. See the racing schedule below.

9/12 Mason Invite 1st  

The Mason invite was quite a bit smaller than normal.  Instead of 5000 athletes and 100s of teams we had had 1500 athletes and dozens of teams.  Still large, but not the circus that it is most years.   That being said, the team did well. 

The girls team was loaded for bear, because the state runner up team was present (Lakota East) as was the the #5 team in the state (Loveland).   However, East elected to not run their A team and Loveland was missing a key player.  So, the Comets of Mason took advantage of the situation and ran up front and fast! They took charge through the first mile and established themselves as the leaders quickly. The Loveland girls that remained put up a good fight but the depth of our team was too much for them to handle. 

Our team was led for a time by Aria Hawkins, and then ultimately by Abby Muglia.   After Abby we had a number of girls all within 10 seconds of her time.  We had a great pack with Manuela Capiello, Macie Radcliffe, Jenna Harris, Carlie Condit, Ellie Bevan and Kennedy Rader all coming in one by one shortly after.  In the team scoring we ended up winning by over 40 points and the team looks to be hitting their stride.  They ran well, and look to be ready to face bigger challenges down the road. 

The coming Saturday, the Mason CC teams race at Milford and Eaton Invites.

9/19 Milford Invite 2nd place  

This weekend Mason competed at two different meets. We rested some of our varsity girls but the rest of them competed primarily at Milford.  The team was led by Erica Fennimore, Jenna Harris and Aria Hawkins.  They battled well up front and went toe-to-toe with a state runner-up Lakota East.  There was some back-and-forth early in the race but towards the end Lakota East edged us out by 1 point. The girls did a nice job and we also got great production out of our fourth and fifth runners Kiera Doran and Avery legault. 

The team looks to be running very well right now, and we are excited for another crack at our GMC rivals along with Loveland next week at Voice of America.

9/26 East Invite 1st  

This weekend the Mason Comets were competing at three different meets, but our varsity was at voice of America. The Girls notched first place at the East Invite on Saturday.

 

The competition at the meet was tough, with 4 of the top 10 teams in Ohio in attendance.
The race was fast early and the competition thinned quickly. 
It soon became a head-to-head race with Loveland and Mason, again.  The Mason duo of Aria Hawkins and Abby Muglia were out front with a great supporting cast of girls behind.   After a tough fight, they were able to outpace the Tigers of Loveland in the final kilometers.
Aria Hawkins broke 19 minutes, and several other girls were close behind.  Jenna Harris was steady as always, and Macie Radcliffe, Kennedy Rader and Manuela Capiello rounded out our final scorers. 

It was a successful meet in that we were able to defeat two of the top five teams in Ohio, and beat Lakota East for the first time in three years. 

Next week the girls CC team heads to Columbus to face some new competition, andl get a chance to see the  #1 team in Ohio, Hilliard Davidson. 


         
         
10/3 Midwest Meet of Champions 1st  

This past weekend the Mason Comets Girls XC team competed in multiple events due to the limitations on entries this season.  The girls had our "B Team" running at the St. Xavier invite, and our "A Team" running in Columbus at the Midwest Meet of Champions. 

The meet in Columbus was a nice change of scenery and offered the chance to battle some other teams that we have not seen this year.  The first section (that we were not in) featured Hilliard Davidson, Ohio's #1 team, and they lit it up.  Their times were very impressive, and when we lined up, we hoped to match them in our section. 

We did not quite meet that goal, but did do well.  The team ran in a section with teams mostly from the Cleveland area, and/or outside of Columbus.  Our main competition was St. Vincent Saint Marys.  They are very good, and have been D2 state champs many times.  This year they were looking strong early in the race, but faded late and our Comets took over.  We put 7 girls in the top 10 of this race, and won by a huge margin. 

The team was led this week by freshman Carlie Condit.  Carlie looked great, and left our pack at about the 4k mark to notch her best time of the season, and take 3rd place overall.  After Carlie, was a pack of Mason Comets.  Manuela Capiello, Kennedy Rader, Advika Sumit and Macie Radcliffe were our main scorers on the day and ran well.  The team has worked hard this year to run together, and that they did.  Outside of Carlie who ran a bit ahead, the next 6 runners all finished within 20 seconds of one another. This "pack time"is very impressive, and will serve us well down the tournament stretch.  The team looks strong right now, and is winding up for a nice postseason run.   Go Comets!! 

 

10/10 Kings Invite     This past weekend the Mason girls cross country team traveled all the way to Kings to compete in a meet.  Because the GMC is coming up soon, we chose to rest our top girls.  
That did not stop our varsity B Team from getting it done.
The team was comprised of a number of freshmen and others who stepped up to the challenge.
Leading the way was Sophia Goldschmidt, a freshman, who ran lights out to win the race overall.  She was followed by a senior, Julia LaSala who has fought back from injury her whole high School career. 
Next was another freshman, Grace Henson who also ran very well.  The course was rolling and challenging but many of the girls had season best times and competed as well as they have all year. 
The team did very well, and was able to defeat Anderson in a rare dual meet format. 

We are excited about their performance and we're really pleased with the efforts of these young ladies. 

The GMC Championships are slated for Saturday, Oct. 17th at VOA. The Girls CC program will be vying to return to the top of the GMC and unseat defending league champions, Lakota East who slipped by Mason last year by just 1-point. The Comets have won 8 GMC titles since entering league in 2007.

COMET GIRLS CC UNSEASTS EAST TO WIN 9TH GMC CHAMPIONSHIP

Last Saturday's GMC tournament produced a welcome return to the podium for the Mason Comets Girls CC teeam. The girls had been close the past several years just missing GMC titles as East held the league trophy the past 2 seasons.

This year they were able to get back to their winning ways and did so in an impressive fashion. The team had six girls in the first team GMC including several in the top seven of the race.
Our first finisher was Manuela Capiello, followed closely by Carlie Condit and Aria Hawkins
After that group of three, another group of three came in including Macie Radcliffe, Jenna Harris and Advika Summit. The team was able to complete the course in a season best average time and was able to beat the next closest team by over 20 points.
We also had a great turnout in the JV race.  The JV team actually ran so well, it appears they would have won the varsity race had they been in that competition.

We are thrilled with their performance and excited about their potential moving forward.

Mason Girls CC competes at the OHSAA District Meet back at VOA on Saturday, Oct. 24th. Mason is the defending District Champion and has won the title 11 out of the past 12 years.

Mason Highlights
8/28 FAIRFIELD won 24-12 1-0 1-0

In a strange season opener with very few fans, no band, etc. Friday Night Lights was very different. The Mason football team was able to ignore the absence of what makes HS football so special though. The Comets came out on top in a big way in their GMC opener as they defeated the Fairield Indians, 24-12 

Fairfield led 5-3 late in the third quarter when Nolan McCormick rolled off a 75-yard touchdown run. McCormick would throw a TD to Michael Roux on the next possession to open up the lead. 

Senior defensive back Brady Comello came up with a pair of interceptions, including a crucial one late in the game to stop a Fairfield drive.

Mason will take their team on the road this Friday night to meet Lakota East, who lost in the last few seconds this past week to Sycamore 34-31.

 
9/4 at Lakota East won 28-21 2-0 2-0

Mason took their team on the road this past Friday and came away with a 28-21 at Lakota East. The Comets never trailed in this cross county rivalry and led 14-7 going into the half. Mason put the game out of reach in the fourth quarter establishing a 28-14 lead even though the Hawks put up a late score to draw within 7.

Statistically the game was fairly even with Mason out rushing East 146-128. East did have two turnovers which cost them on the scoreboard.

Nolan McCormick and Michael Molnar carried the ball effectively on the night for Mason with 70 and 69 yards gained for each, respectively. Both had TD's runs as well. Michael Roux got a rushing TD also and caught 3 passes for 46 yards.. Molnar threw one TD pass to Jaxon Orlando for the other score.

Mason is not 2-0 overall and 2-0 in the GMC. This Friday, they will host Oak Hills (0-2) who fell to Colerain last week 30-0.

 
9/11 OAK HILLS won 27-12 3-0 3-0

Mason stays perfect on the season at 3-0 with a 27-12 romp over Oak Hills last Friday night. Oak Hills got on the board first but the Comets answered in a big way. Mason scored 27 points over the next three quarters before a late Highlander TD.

Statisically, Mason outgained OH 325-209 in total yards nad 20-9 in first downs.

Nolan McCormick rushed for 116 yards on 20 carries and scored two of Mason's TD's on 1 and 3 yard gallops. QB Michael Molnar passed for 64 yards on 9/13 for 1 TD and also rushed for 66 yards on 13 carries. Cobi Lewis caught 7 passes for 57 yards. Kaden Evans scored Mason's other TD on a 3 yard rush in the 2nd quarter.

Mason now turns its attention to Sycamore when they host the Aves this Friday for the annual "Battle of the Sky". Last week Sycamore(1-2) fell to Lakota West 33-0.

 
9/18 SYCAMORE won 21-13 4-0 4-0

Mason Football pushed their record to 4-0 this past Friday with a 21-13 win at home vs. Sycamore. The Battle of Skies was a close affair with Mason pulling away in the fourth quarter.

Mason opened up a 14-0 lead in the second quarter on a 7-yard run by Michael Molnar and a Bryce Faulk 29 yard interception return for a TD.

Sycamore drew within 1 point mid-way into the third quarter. Mason was able to generate a score with 6:07 remaining on a 13-yard dash by Nolan McCormick to put the game away.

McCormick finished with 68 yards on the ground on 17 carries. QB Molnar rushed for 41 yards on 12 carries.

Mason will take their perfect season to Hamilton (2-2) this Friday night. Big Blue defeated Oak HIlls last week 41-13.

 
9/25 @ Hamilton lost 12-7 4-1 4-1

Mason was dealt it's first loss of the season at Hamilton last Friday. Final score 12-7. Big Blue got the go-ahead TD with 4:18 remaining in the contest. The Comet offense was limited to just 173 total yards on the night.

Mason scored their only points in the 2nd quarter on a 7-yard run by QB Michael Molnar. The score at half was 7-6 Comets. Individually, Nolan McCormick rushed for 97 yards on 22 carries.

The 4-1 Comets will visit Lakota West this Friday night to battle the 4-0 Firebirds for the GMC. West did not play this past Friday due to a cancellation by Oak Hills.

MASON FB BATTLES WEST FOR GMC TONIGHT!

Friday will mark the first year since 2000 that the Colerain Cardinals have not won or shared the Greater Miami Conference title.  Mason comes into the game 4-1 after getting knocked off by Hamilton last week. That ties the Comets with Princeton who is 4-1 in the GMC with a loss to Lakota East.  The Firebirds (4-0 GMC) have had an extra week to prepare as they were off last Friday due to a COVID-19 incident at Oak Hills. Mason lost to West last season 14-6 but won the previous 5 times.

Should the Comets and Vikings win, they will share the GMC. Princeton is at Fairfield tonight.  If Lakota West prevails at home, the trophy is theirs. Mason has never won the GMC, while Princeton last shared a title with Colerain in 2003. Between 1967-1985 the Vikings won consecutive titles and from '67 to 1993, there were only two seasons where they didn't win or share the championship. 

You can watch Lakota West vs. Mason via Chatterbox Sports. For $13.99/month you have access to a number of games.  For fans of the Mason Comets, student-run Mason Sports Radio has the call via Mixlr.  Tonight's game is also part of the Skyline Chili Crosstown Showdown Series.  Mason lost to West last season 14-6 but won the previous 5 times.

 
10/2 at Lakota West lost 21-0 4-2 4-2

Mason Football fell to Lakota West 21-0 last Friday. It was a close contest (7-0) at the half and the Comets were very much in the contest for the GMC title. Mason couldn't take advantage of a 2nd quarter muffed punt as their best chance of scoring in the half.

The 2nd half was all LW as their defense stifled the Comet offense which was limited to 9 1st downs and 138 yards of total offense.

Its on to the postseason for the Comets (4-2). Mason (#4 seed) will host the Lebanon Warriors (#11 seed) this Friday at Atrium Stadium. The winner will advance to play either Colerain or Milford on Oct. 16th. The Warriors (2-4) defeated Little Miami last Friday 41-7.

 
10/9

OHSAA PLAYOFFS

vs. Lebanon

@ Mason

won 34-16 5-2 4-2

Mason FB had no trouble this past Friday defeating Lebaon to advance to the next round of the OHSAA playoffs. The Comets had plenty of offense and defeated the Warriors 34-16. Mason built an early lead of 27-2 at the half and coasted in the 2nd half, allowing two very late scores by Lebanon.

QB Michael Molnar rushed for 123 yards and three TD's, while passing for 103 yards on 10/16 completions. Nolan McCormick rushed 16 times for 92 yards and two TD's. The Comets collected 350 yards of total offense on the night.

Mason (5-2) will host GMC foe Colerain this Friday night in a regional quarter-final pairing of the 4 and 5 seeds. The Cardinals (5-2) defeated Milford 38-7 last Friday to advance. Mason will be seeking to earn their first win over the Caridinals since entering the league in 2007. The winner will play either Lakota West or East on Oct. 23rd.

 
10/16

REGIONAL QUARTER-FINAL

vs. Colerain

@ Mason

lost 28-7 5-3 4-2

Mason Football's 2nd round OHSAA playoff contest vs. Colerain didn't go the way we all hoped. Colerain will move on after defeating the Comets 28-7 last Friday. The game was closer than the final score.

For Mason (5-3), it was a tale of missed opportunities, specifically in the first half. Trailing 7-0 in the second quarter, the Comets drove 59 yards behind the running of Nolan McCormick and quarterback Michael Molnar and had first-and-goal at the Colerain 5-yard line. Mason gained just one yard on three straight running plays, then its 21-yard field goal attempt sailed wide right. 

On its previous drive, Mason marched 65 yards and were knocking on the door for the game's first points when Molnar's fourth-down pass was intercepted by leaping linebacker Lavert Jarmon. Four plays later, Colerain seized a lead they would not relinquish. 

Mason pulled within a score early in the final frame. The Comets recovered a Colerain fumble, then went on a 16-play, 59-yard drive capped off by a 1-yard touchdown run by McCormick, who finished with 98 yards on 20 attempts. 

Congrats to the players and coaches for their perserverance and hard work during a most difficult and unusual HS football season.

BOYS GOLF UNSEATS EAST!

2020 GMC CHAMPS!!


Mason Boys Golf won their programs 2nd GMC Championship after two-days of furious rounds at Walden Ponds Golf Course on Thursday.  It had been 8 years (2012) since the Comets held the coveted GMC Trophy.  It took some record-setting performances by the Comets to overcome the 6-time defending champs (10 overall), the Lakota East Thunderhawks.  Mason shot a team score of 578 to outdistance East by 6 strokes.  The Comets 283 under-par team score tied a one-day, all-time record for the conference tourney (East 283-2018).  

Mason's A.J. Wilhelm established a new individual low scoring record with his two-day total of 135 (former record 136-Kyle Schmidt, East 2018).  AJ's under-par 65 score on Tuesday is also a GMC one-day low score record.  For his efforts the "super sophomore" was named the GMC Player of the Year. This is the 2nd year in a row that a Mason boys golfer has won that GMC accolade, as current "super soph", Nate Vonderhaar, won the title last year.  

Five Mason golfers earned first-team All GMC honors.  See scores below:

---AJ Willhelm (10), 1st-135

---Charlie Golski (12), tied for 3rd-146

---Daniel Heister (10), tied for 7th-149

---Nate Vonderhaar (10), 9th-151

---Timmy Hollenback (10), tied for 10th-152

Senior, Carson Howard was Mason's 6th man and finished 25th overall with a 168.  

Mason Head Coach Tim Lambert received the GMC Coach of the Year honor.  This was Lamberts 2nd COY recognition (2012, 2020).  

With four of Mason's top five golfers only being 10th graders, the future looks extremely bright as the team prepares for the Sectional, District, and State Tournament competitions in the coming weeks of postseason play.

While the Comets didn’t set any team records like they did at GMC, their team score of 305 was enough to defeat 2nd place St. Ursula (327) and allowing them to move on to the district tournament.

Junior Ally Madden was the tournament medalist and led the Comets with a one over par 73. Nicole Mater shot 75 for 3rd overall and right behind her was Catherine Zhang with 77 for 4th overall.

Game Summary
8/22

@ St. Ursula

won 2-1 1-0 0-0
On a cloudy but hot Saturday afternoon, the Comets Women's Varsity Soccer team started their 2020 season hosted by St Ursula Academy. Striking early in the 1st half and then again in the second half, the Lady Comets walked away with a 2-1 victory.

At the whistle, the Bulldogs had the kickoff, coming out fast and hard, taking their 1st shot on goal just after 2 minutes but being easily collected by Comets goalkeeper Mia Moran. Struggle for control continued for the next 2 minutes until the Comets minted a solid attack up the middle where Jayna Seales passed to Elise Haller, who then tucked the ball into the top-left corner of the goal, untouched by the SUA goalie. The Bulldogs mounted several attacks in the 1st half resulting in 4 shots on goal all collected by Moran.

The Comets had the kickoff at the start of the second half with agressive back and forth play continuing. A few minutes into the half, Emelia Geren sent a pass from midfield up to Shannon Crogan, who evaded the defender and took a left footed shot into the bottom right goal - giving the Comets a 2-0 lead. Aggressive, back and forth play continued for another 30 minutes, when the Bulldogs got one in, making the score 2-1. Feeling some opportunity, the Bulldogs would make a few more attacks that were stopped by the solid Comets backline of Carly Keuffer, Tori Hopton and Erin Hummel. 
Next up, the Comets travel to Mt. Notre Dame on Monday evening.
8/24 @ Mt. Notre Dame (KY) lost 2-1 1-1 0-0

Mason Women's Soccer came up short in their second game of the season on Monday against Mount Notre Dame, losing 2-1. The game started with a fast back and forth, with both teams taking shots on goal. About 20 minutes in, Jayna Searles opened the scoring when she received a sharp pass up the middle from Sara Morris and sneaked past the keeper to hammer it in the  goal. A few minutes later, another Mason goal was called back for offsides before the half, which ended 1-0 Mason advantage. 

 


The second half was a replay of the first, with energetic play and attempts on both ends of the field. A Mason penalty in the box led to a penalty kick for MND and tied up the score 1-1. About 10 minutes later MND scored again. Mason had some strong opportunities and shots on goal, but couldn't convert before game's end.

 


Next up is the Comets' first home game at 7 p.m. on Sept. 3 against Fairfield.

9/8 @ Hamilton won 4-0 3-1 2-0

Four games into the season, the Mason Women's Varsity Soccer team held off Hamilton in a 4-0 shutout last Tuesday. The Comets started the game strong and fast, driving into the Hamilton defense and firing off 6 shots before Maddie Baird passed over the top from midfield and Shannon Crogan picked it up on the left side, dribbled through traffic, and hit the net 7 minutes and 30 seconds into the game. The game continued at this pace through the 1st half, with Crogan netting a second goal with an assist from Jayna Searles. At half time the score was 2-0. In the second half, the comets maintained the momentum on offense with Elise Haller and Baird each picking up a goal.

 


The Comets defense remained solid through the game with the starting back line of Carly Kueffer (CB), Tori Hpton (LB), and Erin Hummel (RB) directing much of the defensive posture. Throughout the game, the defense limited the incursions into the Comets defensive half and allowed Big Blue to get only 8 shots the entire game. About 25 minutes into the 2nd half, Amelia Moran handed off the goalie gloves to Kyleigh Dahlgren. About 10 minutes in, Dahlgren held strong to a solid Big Blue attack and shot on goal.

It was a solid and high-energy effort in the first half, with midfielder Emilia Geren relentlessly tracking and derailing Lakota’s key offensive threat all game. Lakota scored early, but the Comets continued to play a high-pressure offense to create opportunities. Before halftime, the Firebirds scored again, setting up a 2-0 lead.

The Comets exploded into the second half, jumping on the attack and working to get around a Firebirds defense that had only given up 3 goals in five games this season. Midfielders Liz Berry and Jayna Searles controlled the inside game while wings Kaitlyn Heckler and Maddie Baird moved fast and fed balls forward. Minutes in, Baird passed to forward Shannon Crogan, who took a strong run and blasted a right-footed shot into the net. Ten minutes later, as momentum gathered for the Comets, forward Elise Haller settled a ball after a throw-in and struck it past several defenders to the inside of the net, tying the game 2-2. 

It’s rare for the Firebirds to find themselves in a tie game, and they responded by upping their attack and pace. The Comets matched them, as Jess Thomas and others denied multiple attempts by the Firebirds to gain possession on the outside. The Comets’ back line stuck to its tenacious, calm, and coordinated style, with Carly Keuffer, Tori Hopton, and Maria Speas acting as a unit to deny West’s repeated attempts to create plays near the net. 

In the moment that turned the game, with 27 minutes left on the clock, forward Ella Madden received a long pass from Baird, evaded a handful of West defenders, and fired a left-footed shot into the goal. Now leading 3-2 with plenty of time left to play, the Comets didn’t let up. As the Firebirds changed the point of attack again and again, the Comets dug in to maintain possession and earn the hard-fought win. Goalkeeper Amelia Moran had four saves in the game.

The 3-2 win puts the Comets at the top of the GMC.

But the Comets reorganized at halftime and came out ready to get the ball in the net. The first one came just minutes in when Maddy Baird struck it past the Cardinals keeper. The second and third came within 15 minutes, both by Emilia Geren -- including a shot popped high and over the keeper's head just under the bar. 

The Cardinals didn't stop their press, however, as the Comets worked to possess the ball and control the pace. The fourth and final goal was a shot by Baird that slid in over the keeper's head and below the bar.
