The Herndon Comets continued their climb through the WAGS ladder in the Fall 2012 season by capturing the Division 2 Championship with an undefeated record. Since forming into the current team which was placed in Division 4, the team has won each Division that they’ve played in. Sprinkled in were various 2nd place finishes and strong performances.
The team was able to successfully mold a number of new players into their possession-based style quickly, and the results on the field were immediately evident. The team began the season with a hard fought 1-0 win over McLean Force Green, who would finish the season in 2nd place. Two tight draws followed but then the team began to fully click and the squad rattled off 5 wins in a row scoring 17 goals and only conceding 3 in those matches. They finished the season with an undefeated 6-0-2 record and won the 8 game season by 4 points in the standings.
Taking the Spring season off to play in the Regional Colonial League, the Comets will look to win Division 1 in the Fall of 2013.
