HARRISBURG, Pa. – The Missouri Comets remained perfect in the new Major Arena Soccer League by claiming a 24-10 win against the Harrisburg Heat at the Farm Show Arena Saturday Night.
The Heat, along with Syracuse, Baltimore and Rochester, are the only teams in the league that still play under the multi-point scoring system. Eight players scored for the Comets (5-0), and Leo Gibson added six more points to his league-leading season total with a goal and five assists.
In the first three minutes, Max Touloute scored twice and gave the Comets an early lead before Harrisburg's Patrick Thompson tallied the first and only goal for the home team in the first quarter.
Gibson then tallied his 13th goal of the season before Bryan Perez and Milan Ivanovic each scored to give the Comets a 10-2 lead.
Robert Palmer scored his first goal of the night 18 seconds into the quarter and scored again six minutes later. Harrisburg's Kenneth Fultz scored the home team's second goal and it was 14-4 at halftime.
After a scoreless third period, Harrisburg made a run at the Comets in the fourth quarter but Danny Waltman stood tall in the net and Missouri claimed the victory.
The Comets play host to the Chicago Mustangs, last year’s PASL champion, at 7 p.m. Friday at the Independence Events Center.
