The play was even more tragic for the Comets because Braden Brown turned an ankle trying to chase down the Musketeers’ speedy running back. He had to sit for the remainder of the game.
Brown finished with 122 yards on eight carries, all coming in the first half.
"He is our leader on offense even though he is just a sophomore," Brown said. "It kind of limited us offensively when that happened."
