After starting the season with an exciting, come-from-behind win against Citrus College, the Comets then lost to Long Beach City College, currently ranked second in Southern California, 45-13.
In that game, starting quarterback Brett Hollingsworth suffered a concussion and has not been able to play since.
In Hollingsworth’s absence, the Comets have had a rotation of Austin Early, Andre Blake and Mitch Bartram.
After drubbing Mesa College 33-6, the team took a tough loss to high scoring Saddleback College 42-31.
Currently ranked #11 in the California Community College Athletic Association’s Southern California – National Division, the rest of the schedule isn’t much more forgiving. With scheduled meetings against Fullerton, Golden West and Grossmont (currently ranked sixth, ninth and 23rd in the state respectively) , the Comets have a tough road ahead of them.
