Kingman High Bulldogs want that first win

KINGMAN - David Ward continues to believes in his football players, but he also continues to express frustration in getting his team to make amends for last weekend's performance.

"The team has the potential to be very good. There's no question about it," the first-year Kingman head coach said. "Against River Valley, what occurred was an over-pursuit when they had three big cutback runs for touchdowns. You take away three big scores, and that game's a dogfight. We need a little more game-savvy, in terms of defense reactions. Just little things."

Given that River Valley won on the scoreboard and also in the running game, Ward remains unsure of what to expect heading into tonight's 7 p.m. home contest against Parker High School.

"About 130 of their yards came on three plays. They had more speed sideways," Ward said. "I'm not got to sit there and say, 'We didn't play hard, we didn't hit them in the mouth.' We didn't have three or four guys going to the ball. That's what killed us.

"Parker's physical. They'll push you around. If they control the ball all night, you're not going to win. So who knows? They run a triple-option. They pound the ball. They try to get around the end."

Ward also mentioned that Parker relies a lot on converting on short yardage on second down.

That's where he feels more optimistic.

"If you can control the line of scrimmage, keep them out and make it second-and-long for them, you change what they like to do. That's the thing we've got to stop," Ward said.

That's a major area where Kingman will attempt to start fresh and get their first win of the 2013 season.
