By winning six of their last seven games, the Komets have pulled to within one point of Evansville for first place in the Turner Conference.
And on Sunday, the Komets play host to Berry Conference-leading Wichita.
The Komets' youngest players deserve much thanks.
Over this seven-game stretch, second-year player Chris Auger has four goals and nine points, second-year Artem Podshendyalov has three goals and four points, rookie Jean-Michel Rizk has three goals and five points and rookie Stephon Thorne has three goals and six points.
Twenty-four goals were scored by the Komets, with 14 of them coming from first- and second-year players.
By the way, I neglected to post this story before the Komets' 7-2 victory at Moline, Ill., today.
