Lady Bulldogs hammer River Valley, move to 4-0

KINGMAN - The Lady Bulldogs spread the floor Tuesday night in a three-set beating (25-11, 25-9, 25-10) of River Valley High School.

"All we have to do to beat them is to find the holes in the court," said sophomore middle blocker Desirae Gonzalez, who tallied seven kills, nine digs and was 4-for-4 on block attempts against River Valley. The Bulldogs contained the Dust Devils, starting the night on an 8-0 run.

They controlled their end of the floor while cranking up the intensity at the net, denying River Valley numerous chances to send the ball into striking distance.

It was as if River Valley kept running into a brick wall.

"Those are so great, when you get that block. Getting an 8-0 run just builds your confidence for the rest of the game," Gonzalez said. "I want to start quick and get things going."

Another thing to stand out was the number of service errors. They've had just seven service errors in the past two matches (going back to their brief 1-0 win at Antelope High School in Wellton last Saturday morning).

Kingman head coach Salina Fogg was encouraged.

"That's what we were having [in] a game, not in an evening. I was glad to see that come back around," said Fogg. "I was glad to see the girls were able to focus. We've really been working hard on coverage in practice.

"They're putting their money where their mouth is. They've been working on that, day in and day out. Des really led that attack. When you have so few opportunities, it really is a testament to how ready they were."

Kingman (now 4-0 this season) is scheduled to travel today for a 6 p.m. match against Lake Havasu City. Then they head to Parker on Thursday.
