Major Indoor Soccer League’s (MISL) newest expansion team, the Missouri Comets, recently wrapped up their debut season with an impressive run which took them all the way to the semifinals of the playoffs. The team, which was named after the original Kansas City Comets, was coached by a familiar face to Kansas City soccer fans, Kim Roentved. Prior to taking the coaching position with the Missouri Comets, the 17-time all-star and fan favorite was well known throughout Kansas during his time with the MISL team the Wichita Wings. After retiring from soccer in 1999, Roentved has coached youth soccer clubs throughout the Kansas City area. One of the youth soccer teams that he still currently coaches is The Rangers, a U12 Premier soccer club based out of Shawnee. In fact, Nicole Long, an employee for King’s Moving & Storage in Kansas City, MO, is the proud mother of one of the girls on The Rangers and has nothing but good things to say about Roentved. “I am absolutely thrilled to have him be my daughter’s coach and mentor,” said Long. It’s great to see Roentved have a continued relationship with the community and it will be interesting to see how the Comets fare with Roentved during the 2011-12 season.
