Twenty-one games through the B.C. Female Midget AAA Hockey League, and the Greater Vancouver Comets are perfect.

With nine games left in the year, the Comets have a 20-point lead over the next closest team, the Thompson-Okanagan Lakers, and have already clinched the top spot in the league heading into the playoffs.

The Comets have six shutouts and are allowing an average of 1.23 goals per game while filling the net at a rate of 4.5 per contest. The highest goals-for average was 4.16, set by the Northern Cougars two years ago.

Jenn Gardiner is first on the Comets and the league in scoring with 21 points. Behind her, Nina Jobst-Smith has 18, Rebecca Clarke and Sophia Christopherson have 16 points, while six others have at least 13.

Brooke Vial and Cassie Shokar couldn’t be better in net, as both are undefeated and splitting the majority of games. They each have a GAA under 1.3.

There have been close calls, as the Comets have four wins in one-goal games, but the last one came in the middle of November.

In 2010-11, the Fraser Valley Phantom (now known as the Rush) set the record for best ever season when they went 24-2-2 in a 28 game year. Three years later, the Phantom finished 22-1-7 and allowed just 31 goals against, a league record.

It will be a fun road to the end of the year to watch the Comets strive for a perfect season, plus see how they stack up in the Esso Cup, the Canadian Hockey Female Midget Hockey Championship.
