Comets parents walked their sons onto the soccer field Saturday night for Senior Night. The varsity boys went on to defeat Elyria 4-2 to improve to 6-5-1. Senior Gavin Velazquez scored every goal for Steele with assists coming from Danny Vitelli, Ben Biedenbach, and Dylan Simulcik. Brandon Hazelgrove had three saves for Amherst, though Isaac Dicken put two in for the Pioneers. Meanwhile, Elyria keeper Logan Boddy was hard-pressed and managed five saves. The Comets outshot their opponents 25-13.
