Second half surge puts Kingman High in the victor's seat

KINGMAN - Down 15-14 at halftime against Goldwater High School, Kingman High rediscovered their identity - a fast, physical team that breaks down opponents by any means necessary.

That resulted in 21 third-quarter points and a 35-15 victory on Thursday night in Phoenix.

The Bulldogs tallied 322 rushing yards on the night to complement senior quarterback Tyler Logas' performance. He went 5-of-12 in passing attempts for 52 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. That pick came late in the fourth quarter when he felt GHS' pressure to get rid of the ball.

Senior Joe Scott rushed for 160 yards on 15 carries and two rushing touchdowns - a 7-yard touchdown run with 5:25 left in the first quarter, followed by a 70-yard dash to the right side with four minutes left before halftime. He also had 26 reception yards and a reception touchdown (a 21-yard slot reception in the third quarter).

Senior fullback Jesus "Junior" Barraza suited up for the first time this season and produced with a 1-yard rush up the middle for the score, 40 seconds into the third quarter.

Recently added junior fullback Daniel Williford also helped the cause. He bolted around the left end untouched, scoring on a 40-yard run about midway through the third quarter. He finished with 72 rushing yards on six carries.

That gave the defense plenty of breathing room to shut down GHS while making numerous substitutions to keep everyone fresh.

Goldwater was held to zero second-half points and became drained as the game went along. That's when they got into difficult positions.

Halfway through the third quarter, GHS had a low snap trying to punt far back in its own territory. Literally in the end zone, they had to play it safe and kick the ball out of bounds for the 2-point safety.

Kingman, now 2-1 this season, will return home to face Bradshaw Mountain High School next Friday at 7 p.m.
