The Kingman boys soccer team almost overcame hurricane-like conditions and two accidental goals during the first half of Tuesday's game against Prescott.

Instead, Ron Camp's goal for Prescott in the 77th minute broke a 4-4 tie to give the Badgers a 5-4 win.

"That was the best game we played so far, considering the conditions," said KHS coach Kevin Wilkerson. "We played great. If we didn't accidentally score two goals on ourselves, we would have won the match."

The Bulldogs had their first accidental goal, which was credited to Prescott's Jose Rodriguez, in the first minute. KHS' Taylor Ferrin tied it at 1-1 in the 10th minute and the Badgers' Oriol Chavira made it 2-1 in the 20th minute.

KHS had its second accidental goal in the 35th minute of the first half. It was credited to Jared Gould to give Prescott a 3-1 lead at halftime.

David Amador cut the lead to 3-2 in the 42nd minute by scoring on a free kick. Conditions improved dramatically in the second half. The rain stopped, but the teams still had to navigate a muddy field.

KHS cut the lead to 4-3 in the 48th minute and tied it at 4-4 in the 59th minute.

"We pulled our heads together and the team captains kept us in the match," Wilkerson said.

The Bulldogs closed out the first half of the season at 2-5. Despite the record, Wilkerson is still pleased with the year so far, but he did say the team needs get through some off-field issues.

"We are progressing," he said. "If we can get though some of the flaws that don't pertain to soccer, then we can get to playing soccer and we will be going fine."

KHS will return to action on Jan. 3 when they travel to Prescott and then host a soccer camp Jan. 4-6.
