Playing in a game of two undefeated teams, the Velma-Alma Comets and Maysville each battled to continue their streak, but the Comets’ passing game worked and brought in a 38-12 victory over the Warriors.
Velma-Alma went on the defensive first and forced a three and out to get possession with the first touchdown coming minutes later off the power of Tristan Wainscott’s arm.
With 9:12 left in the first quarter, Wainscott found Jace Saville for 84 yards to lead 6-0 over Maysville with the first quarter expiring with the same score.
Halfway through the second quarter, the scoring barrage started with the Comets getting a 55-yard pass from Wainscott, this time to Gage Swisher from 55 yards out to lead 12-0.
The Warriors got on the scoring path a few seconds later, returning the kick back for a touchdown to cut the Comets’ lead to 12-6 with 5:59 left in the first half of action.
Almost 30 seconds later, the second connection of the night from Wainscott to Saville happened for the third touchdown of the game for V-A from 25 yards out.
Leading 18-6 over Maysville, the fourth passing touchdown of the game came with 1:28 left to play as Wainscott found Dylan Hurst to take the 24-6 lead with the first two-point conversion night converted.
Wainscott ran it in to lead 26-6 at halftime with the Comets getting possession to start the second half of the game, trying to end the game early against the Maysville Warriors.
An interception gave Maysville the first possession of the second half as they tried to march down the field to put the game closer in their favor and attempt to keep the undefeated streak alive.
Running the clock down, Maysville punctuated the drive with a passing touchdown to cut the Comets lead to 14 points at 26-12 with 6:55 left in the third quarter.
Velma-Alma got another passing touchdown from Wainscott, his fifth of the night, as the Comets connected with Austin Hunt for nine yards out to put them up by 20 points.
Then, Wainscott threw for his sixth touchdown to Hunt, bringing the score to 38-12.
The V-A Comets, now 2-0 on the season, will have another home game with kickoff taking place at 7 p.m. Sept. 18 against Tipton High School.
