A cause for celebration in Cometville

Saturday, the Comets will face non-conference opponent College of St. Scholastica in their first home game of the season. It will also be the university’s inaugural game on the brand new turf at Jerome Berg Field.

The game, celebrating Mayville’s Farmers Bowl tradition, adds a unique element to the game day atmosphere. Preceding the 1 o’clock kickoff, a list of events including a 5K run/walk, the annual parade, a corn & hot dog feed, inflatables, face painting, and more. It’s to be a fun-filled day for kids, Comet supporters, and of course the ball players.

The Comet offense is closing in on a multitude of historic marks.

Creighton Pfau, a junior QB from Fargo, needs just twenty more completions to take ownership of the career completions record. 330 yards passing yards would claim him the career passing yardage crown as well. His top target, Trent Momon is making his own run at the record books too.

Momon ranks in the top five nationally in nearly every relevant statistical category for wide receivers. In just two games, he’s amassed over 330 yards on 21 receptions, has four touchdowns and averages more than ten yards per catch. More impressive, his 189 total yards per game average leads all NAIA wide receivers, and would also lead all FBS level wide receivers. The senior receiver is on pace to shatter every pass-catching record in Mayville State history.

Records and accolades are fun topics to discuss. Barring injury, Pfau and Momon will eventually break multiple MSU records. And these accomplishments should be recognized and celebrated appropriately. However, the Comet family’s focus is only regarding one stat line
