KINGMAN - When Kingman Academy took the field Friday against Precision, the Tigers had already lost.

When one official failed to show, it caused KAHS to forfeit the match and left Tigers' coach Ronnie White and KAHS Athletic Director Shawn Byrne trying to figure out who is responsible.

"It's us as a whole. It's Kingman Academy," White said.

According to White and later confirmed by Byrne, KAHS has a referee official who makes out the schedules for officials at the games. Because of this, the question of who is responsible is a little murky. Is it the school or is the official who made the schedule?

"We're determining if the home team is responsible for an independent contractor's no show," said Byrne, who was not at the match Friday.

Byrne has been in contact with Charter Athletic Association Executive Director Randy Baum about what the ruling could be. One possible outcome is a canceled game unable to be rescheduled.

It's also the latest frustrating chapter for White.The soccer program will be dropped because KAHS is moving to the Arizona Interscholastic Association.

"It's frustrating," White said. "They (the kids) are getting hosed because they are not having soccer next year and now they are getting hosed because adults dropped the ball."
