The Comets played against the Adirondack Flames in an exhibition game at Rome’s Kennedy Arena that donated all ticket sales to the arena. This is the first time the Comets have played locally this year, but the second time they played at the Rome center. 1,073 fans watched the game.
Last year, the team donated about $3,000, but Brandon Lovett, director of administrative services of Rome, said this year it will “definitely be more.”
A sea of blue rushed to the stands as the game begun and Rome Mayor Joseph Fusco dropped the first puck.
Lovett said he’s glad the Comets were able to come back for a second year, especially as the arena celebrates its 50th anniversary.
“We just really want to thank Robert Esche and the Comets and staff,” Lovett said. “And the city of Rome and parks department for all of their help.”
