Comets Sign James Togbah to 3-Year Contract
KANSAS CITY - The Kansas City Comets announced today that free agent defender, James Togbah has signed with the club for three seasons. Per team and league policies, terms of the contract were not disclosed.
Togbah, from Monrovia, Liberia, began his MASL career with the Comets in 2017, appearing in 12 games. His breakout year came the following season (2018-19) when he appeared in 23 games for the Comets, scoring 18 goals to go along with 8 assists for 26 points, and was second in the league that year with 8 power play goals. On loan from Utica FC last season, Togbah appeared in 5 regular season games and 5 playoff games for the Comets.
