KINGMAN - Before Kingman High embarked on a three-game road trip, coach Rob York spoke of the need to pick up two of the three games and head into the Homecoming contest with Flagstaff on Sept. 28 with a 3-2 record.

After last week's 40-8 win over Parker, the Bulldogs will have an opportunity to do just that tonight when they travel to Bullhead City Mohave.

"I think Mohave is a little bit better then what Parker was, so hopefully our kids won't be getting satisfied with what went down on Friday," York said.

Last week, the Bulldogs racked up 440 total yards while dominating the line of scrimmage with 71 plays and a total time of possession of 29:27.

However, if KHS is going to repeat last week's success, it will have to be done with an extremely thin squad.

After practice on Wednesday, York had 10 players ready to play. He had 16 players that are questionable, with 10 of those players either sick or injured, including backup quarterback Tyler Logas, who has a case of pink eye.

According to York, it's not contagious and Logas should see some playing time.

Logas got the start last week for an injured Sean Curran and completed 11 of 19 passes for 135 yards and two touchdowns. This week, Curran was cleared for practice and will be splitting time with Logas.

"We are going to get tested for sure on our endurance and our condition this Friday," York said. "I think the kids are up to it. I think if we come out and play hard and mistake-free, then we will win."

Mistake-free must also include cutting down on the penalties that have plagued the Bulldogs all year. Last week, KHS was penalized 16 times for 130 yards. They also committed four turnovers.

"At this point, I'll take cutting them in half and get eight," York said of the penalties. "That would be below our average for the year."

Entering tonight, the Bulldogs average 12 penalties for 88 yards a game.

Last year, Mohave snatched away what would've been KHS's first Homecoming win since 2002 on a 4-yard run with 32 seconds left. They walked away with a 25-19 victory.

Bulldog players haven't forgotten, and since Mohave's Homecoming is tonight, thoughts of payback are already percolating.

"Some of the kids have said stuff about it," York said. "We will probably bring it up. I think it will be a little bit of a motivation factor and I think it will be more so on Friday when they see all the Homecoming festivities."
