The Kansas City Comets kicked off their 2020-2021 (really just 2021) season with an 8-5 win on the road against the Dallas Sidekicks on Saturday. Helped by a hattrick from Kevin Ellis and a brace from Lucas Sousa in his debut. Two other Comets scored on their debut, Kyle McLagan and Rian Marques. Here are stats and milestones from the game. Of note, the MASL site does not currently have the assists listed for the game, I’ve gone back and reviewed the goals and given assists based on who it appears should get the assist. If stats are updated by the league and my assists are off I will correct going forward.
