The Full 90

Baltimore holds off the Comets

There was no miracle comeback this time.

For the second straight week, the Comets fell behind the Blast in Baltimore on Friday night, but Missouri was unable to rally this time, losing 17-9.

The Comets, who trailed 10-2 before rallying for a 12-10 win on Dec. 9, fell behind 10-6 after the third quarter on Friday. Missouri cut the lead to 12-9 at one point, but Baltimore never wavered.

Newly signed midfielder Tiguinho led the Comets with five points, but they missed the services Byron Alvarez and Brian Harris. Both didn't play in the game.

Missouri dropped to 7-4 on the season while Baltimore improved to 6-3.
