Despite giving up seven goals in a 7-0 loss to Flagstaff on Saturday, Kingman High boys soccer coach Kevin Wilkerson was pleased with how well his sophomore goalkeeper Eric Venenga played.

Venenga played in place of starter Alex Peterson and faced a Flagstaff squad that had 20 shots on goal, with Venenga stopping 15 of them.

"For the amount of shots he had, he did good," Wilkerson said. "He is going to be our keeper next year. He just needs a little more experience."

Flagstaff jumped to a 4-0 lead at halftime and added three more goals in the second half.

"I don't think we did bad. I think we played better than what we did the last time," Wilkerson said.

KHS lost to Flagstaff 3-1 in the season opener. Saturday's match was originally scheduled to be played in Flagstaff but was moved to Kingman following bitterly cold temperatures in the Flagstaff area.

KHS tied Lake Havasu on Thursday and traveled to Bullhead City Mohave on Tuesday.

The Bulldogs (2-8-1) will host Anthem Boulder Creek on Thursday.

Flagstaff's Ashley Christopher and Shelby O'Conner proved too much to handle for the Lady Bulldogs Saturday afternoon.

The duo accounted for seven of Flagstaff's 10 goals in a 10-0 win over KHS.

"Flagstaff is always a tough team to play and the score is the same as it was the last time we played them," said KHS coach Jennifer Johnston. "This time we held them off for longer and we played better."

Christopher scored four goals, with her first coming in the 12th minute and her last coming 44th minute. O'Conner had three goals, with her first coming in the fifth minute her last coming in the 51st minute.

The Lady Bulldogs lost to Lake Havasu 5-4 on Thursday. KHS was led by Paulina Delgado's three goals and Natalie Casson added another goal.

KHS (0-7) hosted Bullhead City Mohave Tuesday and will travel to Anthem Boulder Creek on Thursday. Kingman will return home Monday to host Lake Havasu at 11 a.m.

Article comment by: Former Coach

@ jist

So, what you want is a coach to sound negative, in the middle of a season, and still move forward? Coaches try to find highlights in a loss because no one enjoys losing. There are times when, yes, even in a loss, you are proud of the play of the kids. If a coach speaks negatively they get slammed and now when they try to stay positive they get slammed. Can't win in the public eye, can they?? It's not teaching mediocrity, it's called trying to stay positive for yourself, your school, your program, your athletes and the community.

WHAT IS WITH THESE COACHES?!?!!

i cant help but notice ALL of the coaches at KHS make statements like

"I don't think we did bad. I think we played better than what we did the last time," Wilkerson said.

you did lousy!!! with statements like that i really wonder about the coach

and by the way, as stated in the article, the first time you met they beat you 3-1, the nest time 7-0 ..... somebody got better, somebody got worse.

you are teaching these kids mediocrity is ok
and there is no need to improve.
