After four matches, the Kingman High girls soccer team is still looking for its first win while searching for its elusive first goal of the year.

On Thursday, neither happened for the Lady Bulldogs in a 6-0 loss to Prescott. But coach Jennifer Johnston was still upbeat about how her team played.

"I'm very happy with this game. I don't care that we lost. I just felt like we played a good game," Johnston said.

"We started passing. We were playing as a team, all these things that I knew we could do, we just weren't doing them and we started doing them this game."

KHS (0-4) has been outscored 30-0 so far this season, but while Thursday's match will show a 6-0 loss on the scoreboard, it's a moral victory that will hopefully translate into wins in the second half of the season.

"We had good pressure and we had shots on the net," Johnston said. "I don't care about the loss because the ball was on their half most of the time. I'm hoping that we can keep doing this and keep doing better."

To KHS' credit, the schedule hasn't been kind to the Lady Bulldogs. Thursday's match was just the team's second home match of the year. However, Kingman will close the season with five of its next eight matches at home, including Tuesday's home match with Phoenix Goldwater.

Kingman High didn't lose to Prescott 4-0 because the team was missing three key players, said coach Kevin Wilkerson. Nor did he blame the field, which was half-frozen and slippery.

Wilkerson said the Bulldogs were flat-out beaten by a better team.

"They just beat us," he said. "I don't want to blame it on the field. They just beat us."

Prescott had 30 shots on goal to keep KHS goalkeeper Alex Peterson busy Thursday afternoon in Prescott. The Badgers' Jose Rodriguez recorded a hat trick with three goals, bringing his season total to 13.

The Bulldogs, meanwhile, only mustered three shots on goal and had difficultly breaking through Prescott's defense.

"We couldn't get their defense at all. There was nothing we could do. We tried everything and they just played super, super strong," Wilkerson said.

KHS (2-6) will travel to Lake Havasu on Thursday.
