RECORDS SHATTERED AS COMETS WIN BIG

Lovett throws six touchdowns in 70-0 win, four in 39-point second quarter

The Kings Comets (9-0, 6-0 MSFA) put together another record-breaking performance in defeating the Xenia Tornadoes (1-5, 1-4), 70-0, Saturday evening at the AIA Sports Complex in Xenia, Ohio.

Maurice Lovett set the teamís single-game record with six touchdown passes, four of which came during a 39-point second quarter. That represented the most points scored by the Comets in one quarter, with the 70 points for one game setting another franchise record.

The previous records were 30 points in the second quarter against the Wisconsin Wolfpack on August 22, 2009 and 60 points in one game in the Comets first meeting with Xenia this season.

Kings needed just two plays to begin its record-setting march, with Lovett connecting on a 60-yard pass to Khalid Ali on the first play of the game and then hitting Deandre Riep for a 6-yard touchdown on the next play.

Lovett and Riep connected again for a 1-yard score in the scored quarter, and the defense contributed two scores, a 9-yard fumble return by Cameron Winfrey in the first quarter and a 51-yard interception return by Aaron Kelley in the second, to put the Comets ahead, 28-0, midway through the second quarter.

The Comets then piled up 23 more points in the final four minutes of the first half. Lovett found Eric Morton down the right sideline for a 58-yard touchdown pass to start the outburst. The defense added to the scoring again when Antwan Hill chased down Eric Hoessli in the end zone for a safety. After the free kick, Lovett found Braxton Combs for a 5-yard touchdown with Boom Hillsí PAT kick making the score 43-0. Paul Jones raced downfield to recover a bouncing ball at the Xenia 2-yard line on the kickoff that followed, setting up a touchdown pass from Lovett to Ali on the next play. Riep ran in a 2-point conversion to complete the 39-point quarter and stake the Comets to a 51-0 halftime lead.

The Comets added to their lead despite not running an offensive play with a running clock in the third quarter. Jones returned a punt 57-yards for a touchdown midway through the quarter, and Jameel Peeples recovered a high snap on the final play of the third quarter.

That set up Lovettís record-breaking sixth-touchdown pass of the game, an 8-yard strike to Khalid Ali three plays into the fourth quarter.

Tim Andrew followed at quarterback, completing the scoring with a 71-yard touchdown run on his second snap.

Lovett finished 12 of 25 passing for 179 yards, breaking the record for touchdown passes in a game he had previously shared with James Frazier and Antonio Davis. Ali led all receivers with five catches for 83 yards. Kings added 143 yards rushing on just seven attempts, averaging 20.4 yards per carry.

While the Comets had 329 yards of offense, Xenia was limited to 38, including minus-17 yards rushing on 15 attempts.

Antwan Hill and Cameron Winfrey led the defense with five tackles each, with Hill recording three for a loss, one forced fumble, and one sack. Dínell Spikes added four tackles, a sack, and a forced fumble as the Comets took advantage of six turnovers by the Tornadoes, including four on their first five possessions of the game. Jeffrey Jennings had an interception to go with four tackles, with Vincent Jamison recovering a fumble.

The Comets will be off for the Fourth of July weekend before returning home to face the Kentucky Patriots (1-4, 1-4), on Saturday, July 9 at 7:30 p.m. at Woodward High School.

COMETS CLAIM FIRST PLACE

Kings defense forces seven turnovers to win first-place showdown with Xtreme, 18-16

The Kings Comets (4-0, 7-0 MSFA) took advantage of seven turnovers to defeat the Kentucky Xtreme (3-1, 3-1) and take over first place in the Mid-South Football Allianceís North Division in a battle of previously unbeaten teams Saturday night at Woodward High School in Cincinnati, Ohio.

The Comets set the tone early when Antwan Hillís sack forced a fumble on the first possession of the game that Dínell Spikes recovered for Kings at the Xtreme 30-yard line.

Kendall Owens wove his way 30-yard through the Kentucky defense on the next play from scrimmage, quickly putting the Comets ahead, 6-0.

The Xtreme responded with two 25-yard passes from Julius Jackson to Chris Spaulding, the second resulting in a touchdown, with a 2-point pass to Majid Warith giving Kentucky an 8-6 lead with 6:26 left in the first quarter.

Jeremaie Bennett extended Kentuckyís lead with a 5-yard touchdown run on the second play of the second quarter, but, following a successful 2-point conversion to make the score 16-6, the Xtreme would not score despite having possession inside the Comets 35-yard line four more times in the game.

Kings pulled back to within four points, 16-12, on its next possession. The Comets were aided by a pair of personal fouls after reaching the Xtreme 10-yard line, needing eight more plays before Maurice Lovettís 1-yard quarterback sneak on fourth-and-goal.

The Xtreme reached Comet territory on each of their final three drives of the half, but each ended in a turnover. Ontario Williams intercepted passes at the Comets 10 and 14 yard lines, and Cameron Winfrey forced a fumble that Skyler Hughes recovered at the Comets 7.

Kings took the lead after another turnover on Kentuckyís first possession of the second half. Ivan Dunn fell on a fumble at the Xtreme 9 yard line, and, after being left untouched, made his way to the end zone to put the Comets ahead, 18-16, with 9:12 left in the third quarter.

The Xtreme had two more possessions inside the Comets 30-yard line in the fourth quarter, but were still unable to regain the lead. An incomplete pass led to a turnover on downs at the Comets 25-yard line with 12:36 remaining, and Porshe Black forced a fumble following a completion that Vincent Jamison recovered at the Comets 25 with 6:43 left.

Demario Pleasant ended the Xtremeís final possession by picking off a deep pass at the Comets 15 yard line. A 21-yard pass from Maurice Lovett to Paul Jones enabled Kings to run off the remaining 2:27 in the game.
The Comets won despite being limited to 75 yards of offense. Owens accounted for 56 of those yards on 11 carries.

The Xtreme gained 158 yards of offense, with Bennett rushing 10 times for 68 yards. Spaulding added 73 receiving yards on four catches.

Hughes led Kings defense with 12 tackles, the most by a Comet in a game since Mitch Burch had that many in a playoff game against the Northern Kentucky Bulldogs in 2011. Hughes also had four tackles for a loss, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery. Jamison, Dunn, and Spikes also recovered fumbles, while Williams had two interceptions and Pleasant one, accounting for the seven Xtreme turnovers. Antwan Hill, JíRod Dominguez-Minter and Josh Davis accounted for Kingsí three sacks in the game.

The Comets close out the first half of the MSFA regular season by facing the Northern Kentucky Outlawz (0-4, 0-5) next Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Boone County Pee-Wee Football League Field in Florence.

COMETS MAKE MOVE TO MSFA

The Kings Comets have announced they will participate in the Mid-South Football Alliance for the 2015 season. Playing in the MSFA will allow the Comets to face new and different competition, with the MSFA including teams in four states, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee.

The Comets will play in the MSFAís North Division with other Ohio and Kentucky teams, with the South Division containing teams from southern Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee. There will be no crossover games between divisions, keeping travel manageable.

The MSFA played as the Kentucky Football League (KFL) in 2015, with the Derby City Thunder defeating the Tennessee Rampage, 14-0, for the league championship.

The Comets participated in the Blue Collar Football League (BCFL) in 2015, and look forward to continuing many of the relationships formed with BCFL teams going forward.

COMETS WELCOME BACK CHAMBERS AS COACH

The Kings Comets are pleased to announce that Carlos Chambers has been named as the teamís head coach for the 2016 season.

Taking over the Comets is just the latest stop in an impressive semi-pro career as both a player and coach for Chambers. In 1998, Chambers became the first Comet to be named an All-American, earning the American Football Association Honorable Mention.

Chambers head coaching career began with the Comets in 2007 and 2008, where he helped build the foundation for the Comets 2009 MCFL Championship team. Chambers also coached 2010 fourth-round NFL draft pick Mardy Gilyard in his first stint with the Comets. Chambers went on to lead the Tri-State Sharks, Midwest Panthers, Cincinnati Nighthawks and Cincinnati Hawks. Chambers guided the Nighthawks to a 10-0 regular season in 2011 and led the Hawks to back-to-back Northern Frontier Football League titles and AA National Championships in 2013 and 2014.
