Alison Owen returned to the floor Saturday for Kingman High, a week after a calf injury sidelined her.

Owen's injury occurred in the second quarter of the Lady Bulldogs' 53-48 loss to Flagstaff. On Saturday, she returned to score 12 points, but KHS couldn't avenge its loss to Flagstaff, 63-49.

"I mentioned to Alison, 'We are glad you're back. Now get the ball and spread the wealth.' This is one of those games where she did well," said KHS coach Danny Gonzalez.

While Owen's return is good news for the Lady Bulldogs, the bad news is they are still without their second leading scorer, Desirae Gonzalez, who went down in the fourth quarter in the same game as Owen.

"I trust in our team and that they go out and work just as hard without Des," Gonzalez said.

According to Gonzalez, Desirae re-aggravated a foot injury that cost her the final weeks of the volleyball season. Desirae currently averages 13.6 points a game while leading the team with 17 blocks and 116 rebounds, averaging 8.7 a game.

"When you miss 14, 15 points a game, it makes big difference," said Gonzalez, who is also Desirae's father. "Pretty soon, as a parent, I'm going to have to make that decision if she is done or not. I asked her, 'Let us know what you can do.' We gave her an option, but I think I'm more afraid for her. I don't want her to get more injured."

Taylor Reed led KHS with 14 points while Rachel Arave and Stephanie Goulart each had eight points. Heather Weninger, who started for the first time, had five points.

Flagstaff led 34-19 at halftime and 47-31 at the end of the third quarter.

KHS (9-5) hosted Prescott Valley Bradshaw Mountain on Tuesday and will travel to Bradshaw on Thursday and Mesa Westwood on Friday.

The Lady Bulldogs' next home game will be Jan. 24 against Bullhead City Mohave.

"There is no looking back. We are in the middle of the season," Gonzalez said.
