INDEPENDENCE, MO. – Today the Comets have announced their second player signing in as many days as they prepare for the 2022 Ron Newman Cup playoffs after clinching the MASL Central Division Title.

Midfielder, Mako Makoanyane was signed by the team to a two-year contract, and as per team and league policies, the terms of the agreement were not disclosed. Comets’ owner Brian Budzinski described Mako’s style and college experience.

“Mako comes to us from Columbia College one of the top NAIA programs in the country coached by John Klein.  Mako is a very active and pacey player. Once he gets adjusted to the indoor game, fans are going to love the energy he plays with,” said Budzinski.

The newest Comet echoed the excitement and acknowledged the technical staff in Kansas City by saying “I am very excited to officially be part of the Kansas City Comets. It’s a blessing to be part of such a great team; be coached and play alongside legends, and very talented players. I’m very excited to learn from everyone and contribute towards winning more championships with the team.”

Mako is expected to make his MASL debut on Sunday at 1pm in Milwaukee for the Comets final road game of the regular season.
