Comets complete weekend sweep with win over FC

Kings go over century mark in win over Bulldogs.


“A 30-point weekend, we’re happy with that,” Cowley said. “Credit Rossville for taking us out of our game plan of getting the ball in the post in the second half.”

Brandon Tonsoni led the Hornets (9-3) with 17 points.

Both the Panthers showed good signs in playing Rossville close for a half after a five-point loss at Caston Friday.

“We took away a lot of positive things to build on,” Cowley said. “We’re finding who to go to offensively. Against Caston in a conference and rivalry game you’ll never have a hard time of showing up and competing. We just have to do the little things better, whether that’s going after loose balls or offensive rebounds or turnovers. We had a lowest turnover weekend of the season. We had 12 last night and 15 tonight.”

Pioneer travels to West Central Tuesday.
