The second half belonged to Coventry running backs DuVale Patterson and Treon Sibley. Sibley broke a long run for a touchdown on the first possession of the second half. Dusty Burkhart followed with a pick 6 to give the Comets a 24-14 lead early in the 3rd.
Senior running back DuVale Patterson got things going on the ground with one powerful run after another wearing down the Falcon defense.
Late in be 4th quarter the Comet defense came up big, with Field inside the 15 yard line, senior defensive back Tremayne Collins intercepted a pass to help put an end to a promising Falcon drive.
It was a great team win for the Comets. Next Friday the Comets look to continue their winning ways when the travel to Ravenna.
