The Missouri Comets now own the longest winning streak in Kansas City pro indoor soccer history.

The Comets remained undefeated in 19 matches this season with a 21-4 rout of the Tulsa Revolution on Saturday at the Independence Events Center.

The 19-game winning streak breaks the record of 18 games set by the Kansas City Attack in the 1995-96 NPSL season. The Royals’ record is 16 in 1977 and the Chiefs’ is nine in 2003.

Leo Gibson had four goals and five assists for the Comets.

The Comets are one victory away from finishing with a perfect regular-season record in the inaugural Major Arena Soccer League season. They will play host to Tacoma on Feb. 22 at 3 p.m.
