5-25 - Comstock 1 - Schoolcraft 8

Comstock was sent home early in districts, suffering an 8-1 loss. While the previous match was close, this time the eagles came out hungry and relentless and proved too much for the Colts defense. Kruis scored the lone goal for Comstock on a break-away transition but did not see the ball very much as the mid-field struggled to possess the ball. The colts end the year 12-8-0 with another conference title and a litany of team and individual performances to be extremely proud of.

4-10 - Comstock 2 - Quincy 10

Comstock lost 10-2 while visiting Quincy. While the game was manageable in the first half with a score of 4-1 at halftime and the colts opening the scoring in the 2nd half to bring it to within two, the back of the net would elude them for the rest of the game as Quincy managed to get multiple long crosses to connect with back-side runners to put the game out of reach. 

4-6 - Comstock 1 - Olivet 6

Comstock traveled to Olivet on 4/7 and was sent home with a 6-1 loss. Even though the Colts opened the scoring on a goal from Lydia Kruis in the opening minutes, the Olivet Eagles would control the ball for most of the game. While the Colts defense, led by Junior Anna Putti, would hold strong for the majority of the first half, it was only a matter of time before the equalizer found the back of the net. Junior Summer Beavers recorded 22 saves during the game and was responsible for cleaning up a number of close-calls that didn't make the stat-sheet. Comstock travels next to Quincy.

4-4 - Comstock 7 - Parchment 6

Comstock opened the season against Parchment after a 30-minute lightning delay, winning a thriller 7-6. Senior captains Litzy Ramirez and Lydia Kruis connected on 2 quick goals to start the contest, which would become a theme for the night. Parchment clawed their way back and went up 3-2 before Kruis added 3 more goals, giving the colts a 5-3 lead at the break. Parchment would add 2 more to equalize starting the second half but Comstock would never trail again. Kruis would end the contest with 6 goals, all assisted from Ramirez who added a second half goal of her own. While not making the stat sheet, freshmen Rowan Hagenbuch and Ella Harris made excellent on the field contributions on the way to securing a win in the 2023 opener.
