Utica Comets Defeated In Opening Game

ImageThe Utica Comets made their debut Friday night. It didn’t come off quite the way they’d have liked. Despite outshooting the Rochester Americans, 31-21, the Comets dropped a 4-1 American Hockey League decision Friday, and will go to Albany Saturday evening looking for their first-ever win.

Dan Catenacci scored the first goal of the game, Luke Adam scored twice, and Kevin Sundher also scored for the Amerks, and Matt Hackett played a strong game in goal. The Comets were down 2-0 in the first, 4-0 after two before finally getting the first goal in their history when Pascal Pelletier popped a shot home as he came across the crease with 6:32 to play in the game.
