In the game, he had three punts inside the 20-yard line, giving him 14 on the season in four games, and pinned Moorpark twice insides its 10-yard line.

Koch, a sophomore out of Del Norte High School, kicked a 51-yard field goal, moving him into the top five on Palomar's all-time list.He also booted a 23-yard field goal and added tow PAT kicks to remain perfect on the season.

Curry (5 goals), Rhoads (3 goals) do in Griffs

SAN MARCOS (9-28-2016) -- Palomar ran its men's water polo record to 7-2 and its first-place Pacific Coast Athletic Conference record to 3-0 on Wednesday, splashing past visiting Grossmont 15-10 at Wallace Memorial Pool.

Grant Curry, the Comets' former Cathedral Catholic High School star and a transfer from NCAA Division I Bucknell University, led the way with 5 goals. Ryan Rhoads (3 goals), Paul Schaner (2 goals), Tim Sheehy (2 goals) and Conner Chanove (2 goals) also were in double figures for coach Jem McAdams' Comets.

Mark Morin scored off Rhoads' assist to give Palomar a 1-0 lead 1 minute, 19 seconds into the first quarter. The score was tied early on 1-1, 2-2 and 3-3 before Schaner, Curry, Chanove and Curry tallied four unanswered goals to put the Comets in front 8-4 with 5:37 lft in the third quarter abd the rout was on.

Griffs battle to 1-goal sudden-death win

SAN MARCOS (9-28-2016) -- Palomar's PCAC game with Grossmont on Wednesday at Wallace Memorial Pool couldn't have had a closer ending.

The Griffins' Maddie Stockton scored at time expired in sudden-death overtime to turn back the Comets 7-6, handing them their first conference loss. The ball floated into the cage as most of the Palomar team thought time had already expired. But, after a short delay, the officials ruled that time hadn't expired, that it was a goal and the game was over.

Palomar, trailing 6-3, rallied for three straight goals by Dallas Fatseas, Sydney Thomas and Rebekah Blackburn, the latter coming off her own steal, to tie the game with 2:25 remaining. Jordan Heimback had a series of big saves, including one with 42 seconds showing on the clock.

The Comets are 6-6 on the season and 3-1 in the PCAC.

Comets lose by 5 despite 51-yd. Koch FG

ESCONDIDO (9-24-2016) -- Palomar had plenty of positives Saturday night at Chick Embrey Field at Wilson Stadium, including a 51-yard field goal by Patrick Koch, a distance that moves him to a tie for fifth on the Comets' all-time list.

But the Comets got off to another slow start before waking up, which resulted in another close loss, this one by a 31-26 margin to visiting Moorpark.

On a night Isiah Johnson rushed for 162 yards and three touchdowns on 24 carries for the visiting Raiders, the Comets had numerous players contribute along with Koch, who added another field goal of 23 yards and tacked on two PATs.

Dominique Love scooped up a Moorpark fumble and returned it 50 yards for a touchdown to get Palomar on the board after the Raiders had taken a 10-0 lead.

Quarterback Matt Romero found his range from the second quarter on and passed for 245 yards on the night, including touchdown aerials of 3 yards to Johnny Arzola and 9 yards to Robert Ursua late in the fourth quarter. LaMont Chaney had seven receptions for 62 yards. Arzola and ZIssiah Augero each caught four passes, Terrell Arnold had two catches for 74 yards and Ursua contributed two catches for 47 yards.

Josh Bernard chipped in 79 yards rushing on 19 carries.

Defensively, Brandon Price (11 tackles, 5 of them solo) and Christian Prince (10 tackles, 6 solo including 1.5 tackles for loss), Hunter Turner (9 tackles.,2 for losses), Malavai Taylor (8 tackles, 6 solo, 1 tackle for loss and 2 pass break-ups), Nako Tei (5 tackles), Love (5 tackles to go with his fumble return) and Roger Mann (1 tackle for loss, 2 quarterback hurries) had strong performances.

And Sam Tapia averaged 43.1 yards for 8 punts, including a 56-yarder to the Moorpark 9-yard line, a 51-yarder, a 48-yarder, a 46-yarder and a 43-yarder to the 8. He deposited a total of three punts inside the 20-yard line, two of them inside the 10.

Koch also kickd a 23-yard field goal.

The Comets have played four close games, losing by 6 points, winning by 5, losing by 4 and losing by 5.

Palomar will try to turn that trend around when the Comets visit Chaffey in their final non-conference game next Saturday at 6 p.m., followed by a bye the following week before opening National Conference South play.
