It was the Comets first victory after a 0-0 tie and a 2-0 loss.

Rachel Stahl, who finished with a goal and an assist, gave Palomar a 1-0 lead in the 11th minute when she headed in an assist from Crone on a corner kick. Crone then scored unassisted goals in the 19th and 28th minute and added third goal off goalkeeper Valentina Zito's punt that went for an assist, bringing the score to Comets 4, Tarters 0 in the 38th minute. Denisse Ponce's unassisted goal in the 43rd minute made it 5-0 at the half.

The Comets tacked on a pair of second-half goals by Carmen Hernandez (assisted by Stahl) in the 62nd minute and Renee Old (unassisted) in the 88th minute.

Zito recorded four saves as she contributed her second shutout of the season..

STATE NO. 2 LASERS TOP PALOMAR IN THREE SETS IN V-BALL

SAN MARCOS (9-10-2014) -- Palomar's three-match win streak to begin the women's volleyball season went by the boards in three sets in its home opener on Wednesday at The Dome, courtesy of the state's No. 2-ranked community college team, Irvine Valley.

The Lasers swept the state 14th-ranked Comets 25-18, 25-17, 25-15 as the visitors advanced to 3-0 on the season, including a five-set victory over the nation's second-ranked NAIA team, Concordia University of Irvine.

The Comets also were down by only one point, at 13-12, midway through the second half. But they never were able to take a lead in 1-hour, 44-minute non-conference match-up.

SAN MARCOS (9-17-2014) -- Evan Dean came up big on Wednesday afternoon as Palomar's men's water polo team knocked off defending Pacific Coast Athletic Conference champion Grossmont 13-10 in a PCAC match-up at Wallace Memorial Pool.

 Dean led the Comets (3-2 on the season, 2-1 in conference) with six goals and six assists. The sophomore out of Vista High School scored three goals in helping ignite the Comets to a 7-5 halftime lead, set the tone for the second half early in the third quarter with a goal in the first minute as he put the Palomar up by three goals, and added two quick goals to begin the fourth quarter to help the Comets retain a multiple-goal lead.

Dean also had a great deal of help from his friends.

Goalie Ryan Lazano contributed 15 big saves, many on bang-bang plays with the ball coming out of a crowd in front of the net. He also had five blocks.

Kody Moffatt, the fastest player in the pool, won the sprint to begin all four quarters and also added two goals, two assists and four steals. He converted a penalty shot midway through the third quarter, then stole the ball and assisted Logan Hurst on one of his two goals off a 2-on-0 fastbreak. That give Palomar its first four-goal lead with 1 minute, 34 seconds remaining in the period.

Jonathon Baker scored two goals, the second one off an assist from Moffatt with 5 minutes, 58 seconds left in the game which gave the Comets a four-goal lead for the second time, at 13-9. And Cameron Rath added a goal and three steals).

Rath and Dean topped off the win with steals in the game's final two minutes.

The defending champion Griffins got two goals each from Jorge Perez-Romo, Eddy Reuss and Darrow Riggs.

Palomar runs into a buzzsaw in first loss

LONG BEACH (9-13-2014) -- The word on the street was that Long Beach City College may be as athletic and talented as any team in the Southern California Football Association this season.

Against the Vikings on Saturday evening at Veterans Memorial Stadium, the Comets smacked head-first into the realization that the word on the street may have been right on the money.

After Palomar drove down after the opening kickoff to take a 3-0 lead on the first of two Patrick Koch field goals from 33 yards out just 1 minute, 22 seconds into the game, Long Beach answered right back by scoring 21 unanswered points in the next eight minutes and continued on to a 45-13 non-conference victory over th Comets.

 "They played at a faster speed than we did," PC coach Joe Early said.

To make matters worse, the Comets (1-1) did little positive to help themselves the remainder of the first half and found themselves staring at a 35-6 halftime deficit.

That was the bad news. The good news was that they put up a much better battle over the last two quarters, when they came to life and played the Vikings (2-0) to a 7-7 standoff.

The biggest differences in the game were a huge performance by Long Beach quarterback Kenny Potter, who passed for 219 yards and three touchdowns and ran for an additional 143 yards, and the Vikings' monster pass rush that produced nine sacks.

Austin Early, the second of three quarterbacks the Comets used, completed 6-of-9 passes for 109 yards, including a 50-yard play to M.J. Bailey (6 catches, 108 yards) just before the half. But Long Beach sacked him seven times.

Some other bright spots for Palomar were Shawn Cameron's 121 yards on five kickoff returns, including a 48 yarder from the goal line, a 62-yard interception return by DeAngelo Ivey from six yards deep in the end zone, and an interception by Javante O'Roy.

Also Dylan Donahue's 2 tackles (2 for losses) and 2 quarterback hurries, Bryan Jones' 10 tackles and 3 pass-breakups (one in the end zone) and Dominic Darby's 7 tackles and 12-yard sack.

"We did some good things," Joe Early admitted. Just not enough of them.

The Comets also scored on on Koch's 32-yard field goal and quarterback Mitch Bartram's 4-yard touchdown run with 14:25 left in the game. Koch converted after the Bartram TD.
