Coloma Goes 2-0 In Conference Play, Win A Battle On The Road
Coloma had a rough start to the season but have really turned it on in conference play. Beating Brandywine 44-14 at home was a good start, but the Comets beat Berrien Springs on the road on Friday 20-13. The Shamrocks beat Coloma twice at home handily last season, the second meeting in the first round of the playoffs. Coloma now has a great shot to win the Conference title if they take care of business when they are expected to win and beat Cassopolis at home in late October. Coloma's offense is finally clicking and having a solid passing attack levels the playing field when Coloma has less or smaller players. Sam Swihart was efficient on Friday going 6-9 with 61 yards and one interception. The defense played well forcing three fumbles and holding Berrien Springs to only 59 yards rushing. As the offense has gelled, the defense has carried the way for the Comets as the weather gets colder and the games get more important. The Comets travel to Edwardsburg this week to take on the Eddies who have won two games in the conference already. The Eddies lost in a shootout to Cass before destroying Bridgman and Brandywine.
