DOBBINS NAMED NEW COACH

Defensive Coordinator becomes ninth coach in Comets history

The Kings Comets are proud to announce Jonathan Dobbins as their head coach for the 2017 season.

Dobbins will take over for Carlos Chambers, who will remain with the team in the front office after leading the Comets to a 17-0 mark and the Mid-States Football Alliance Championship. Chambers will remain head coach for the Orange Blossom Bowl AA National Championship Game on January 15.

Dobbins is the architect of a defense that has allowed just 8.4 points and 89.5 yards per game through 17 games. Only one team has scored more than 20 points on the Comets this season.

Promoting Dobbins enables to Comets to maintain the majority of its existing coaching staff as the team makes the move from the MSFA to the Ohio Football League.

The Comets took control of the game early, with Paul Jonesís 67-yard kick return to open the game setting up Owens for a 24-yard touchdown run on the third play from scrimmage.

After the teams traded interceptions, Lovett marched the Comets 80 yards in six plays.

Maurice Lovett threw three touchdown passes as the Kings Comets (16-0) defeated the Cleveland Cobras (9-4) of the Premier Amateur Football League, 28-12, in the USFA Mid-States East Tournament on Saturday night at Woodward High School in Cincinnati, Ohio.

Demonte Clements threw a pair of touchdown passes on Clevelandís first two possessions to help the Cobras build a 12-6 advantage, but the Cobras would not get past the Comets 23-yard line for the rest of the night.

The Comets responded two plays after Clements found Austin Reynolds for a 32-yard touchdown to start the scoring, with Lovett finding Paul Jones for a 55-yard touchdown to tie the score at 6-6 with 10:13 remaining in the first quarter.

Clements hit Pete Burger for a 37-yard touchdown 2:59 later to give Cleveland the lead back, but the Comets took the lead for good two drives later when Lovett connected with Khalid Ali for a 19-yard touchdown with 10:49 left in the first half, followed by a 2-point pass to Eric Morton.

The Comets lead remained 14-12 until late in the third quarter when Lovett hit Dre Riep in stride down the right sideline for a 21-yard touchdown pass with 3:09 remaining.

Kings then forced three straight turnovers in Clevelandís final three possessions, with Antwan Hillís interception and return to the Comets 49 setting up the final touchdown.

Paul Jones closed out the scoring by taking a sweep to the right, reversing field, and bolting 21 yard around the left side for a touchdown, with a 2-point pass to Jamal Trammell putting the Comets ahead, 28-12 with 4:07 left.

Jones finished with 117 all-purpose yards, catching three passes for 69 yard and a score and returning a kick 27 yards in addition to the 21-yard touchdown run.

MIRACLE COMEBACK GIVES COMETS MSFA CHAMPIONSHIP

Kings overcomes 20-point halftime deficit to defeat Daviess County, 40-34

Maurice Lovettís 3-yard touchdown run with 34 seconds remaining capped a dramatic, come-from-behind, 40-34 victory by the Kings Comets (15-0) over the Daviess County Spartans (11-1) in the Mid-South Football Alliance Championship Game on Saturday night at Bosse High School in Evansville, Ind.

The win gives the Comets their second league championship in their 14 seasons of play, with the other one coming in 2009 as a part of the Mid-Continental Football League. It also comes as part of a season in which the Comets turned around a 3-7-1 mark from a season ago in their first season under head coach Carlos Chambers.

The Comets trailed, 34-14, at halftime, but scored 26 straight points in the second half while holding the Spartans to 53 yards of offense and five first downs in the second half after surrendering 275 yards of offense and 14 first downs in the first half.

Both teams entered the game undefeated, with the Spartans jumping ahead on the opening possession with a 24-yard touchdown pass from Evan Harvey to Cortland Dillard just over three minutes into the game.

The Comets answered with a 16-yard touchdown pass from Maurice Lovett to Khalid Ali on their first possession, but the Spartans picked off three passes while piling up 28 points in the second quarter to build their halftime advantage.

Dennis Cranmore interception late in the first quarter set up a 33-yard touchdown pass from Harvey to Brelin Dixon on a fourth-down play on the first play of the second quarter.

Kings answered that touchdown two plays later with a 51-yard strike from Lovett to Dre Riep to tie the score at 14-14.

Daviess County countered that with three straight touchdowns, starting with a 25-yard scoring pass from Harvey to Terrence Brooks with 12:10 remaining in the first half.

Daviess County intercepted two straight passes late in the half. Kevin Farrisís interception set up a 3-yard scoring run by Brooks with 2:22 left in the half, and Tyson Hamiltonís interception led to a 26-yard touchdown pass from Harvey to Dixon on the next play, giving Daviess County a 34-14, halftime lead.

Kings got back into the game with touchdowns on its first two possession of the second half. A 52-yard catch-and-run by Khalid Ali on the opening drive of the half set up Lovett for a 3-yard touchdown run by on the next play.

Following a three-and-out forced by the Comets defense, Kings went on a 10-play, 69-yard drive that resulted in a 7-yard touchdown run by Eric Morton, pulling the Comets to within eight points, 34-26, with 6:36 remaining in the third quarter.

Both teams turned the ball over three times in the second half, as the Comets were unable to capitalize on multiple opportunities to tie the score early in the fourth quarter.

Porshe Black recovered an errant snap by the Spartans and returned it to the Daviess County 20 on the final play of the third quarter, but an interception by Timothy Carbon ended that Comets possession.

Lovett did manage to run in a 15-yard touchdown on Kings next possession, but was stopped on a two-point conversion that would have tied the score, leaving the Comets still behind, 34-32, with 10:17 remaining.

Ivan Dunn intercepted a pass at the goal line on Daviess Countyís next possession, but a fumble gave the ball back to the Spartans at the Comets 22 with 5:26 remaining.

The Spartans advanced to the Comets 2-yard line, but a holding penalty negated a touchdown run on the next play, and the Comets defense forced a turnover on downs at their own 13 yard line with 1:51 remaining.

Following an offsides penalty and an incomplete pass, Lovett hit Paul Jones for a short pass that Jones took 34 yards to the Spartans 48 and Ali for a 33-yard pass down to the Daviess County 15 yard line. A 12-yard run by Lovett put the Comets at the Spartans 3-yard line, and Lovett made his way into the end zone around the left side for the go-ahead touchdown on the next play. Lovett and Ali connected for a 2-point conversion to follow, putting Kings ahead for the first time in the game, 40-34, with 34 seconds remaining.

Ivan Dunn sealed the championship by intercepting a desperation pass on the Spartans next play from scrimmage.

Dunn finished with a game-high 11 tackles and two interceptions. Skyler Hughes matched Dunn with 11 tackles, followed by seven by Cameron Winfrey. Josh Davis and Antwan Hill each had six tackles and two sacks, while Demario Pleasant had four tackles and an interception.

Lovett was named the game's Most Valuable Player, completing 20 of 34 passes for 324 yards with two touchdowns and rushing 10 times for 60 yards and three scores. Ali caught nine passes for 162 yards and a touchdown, with Riep collecting six passes for 104 yards and a touchdown.

Harvey completed 18 of 31 passes for 235 yards and four touchdown for Daviess County, also rushing six times for 70 yards.
