Nice effort by depleted Stars team in 4-2 loss.

They didn't have any A players show up, and didn't have two full lines, but still the gold Stars gave the green Comets a run to the finish.

First period goals by Onello and Luke Steigerwald had the Stars up 2-0.

The green Comets had full compliment of skaters, but couldn't figure out how a team with only a couple of subs AND John Gambale and Marc Teal as two of the few, could be shutting them out.

Finally midway though the 2nd the Comets beat Rollie on a George Anderson goal. We think. There has been shuffling of the numbers going on with the green team, as they are trying everything to get a win.

The Stars kept up until the last half of the third period, when fatigue finally set it. This allowed the Comets a late comeback win. A goal by JA Ambrosino tied it, then another with 1:44 left would get them the win.

Anderson scored into the open net with 2 seconds left to seal it, on a super sweet pass by Brian Armand.

"At first I thought Brian was shooting at the net himself," noted Anderson. "But when I saw how wide it was going, I knew it was a pass to me."

It was the Comets first win of the season, the Stars are still winless at 0-3.

"I thought we'd be better once we got all our young players to show up, maybe I was wrong," said Steve Hardy.
