As the Comets home schedule winds down, the third final home game of the regular season will be a warm one inside Silverstein Eyes Centers Arena against the Harrisburg Heat.
The Comets will be without goalkeeper Brett Petricek, after his unanticipated retirement from professional soccer. Mark Saxby will likely be in goal for the remainder of the season, although the Comets have also signed another ex-Comet, Steven Hamersky, a graduate of Newman University who played with the Comets last season making four appearances.
The Harrisburg Heat enter the match on a two-game winning streak and are led by Ricardo Carvalho(Ricardinho), who has tallied 16 goals and 11 assists from 13 games this season. The Heat have also surprised MASL with three of their five wins over Utica City FC, Baltimore Blast, and Milwaukee Wave. The Heat will be without Davis Mellor.
The Comets are second in the South Central Division with an 8-7 record and are led by Leo Gibson, who has 20 goals and 22 assists from 15 games this season. The Comets will be without midfielder Lucas Rodriguez for the third straight game.
Tickets are still available to watch the renewal of an old NPSL rivalry or it can be watched on television through Eleven Sports or live streamed on https://m.twitch.tv/elevensportsnext with kickoff at 4:05 PM CT from Silverstein Eyes Centers Arena on Sunday, March 3.
