KINGMAN - Despite falling to Prescott Tuesday at Kingman High, 7-2, the Lady Bulldogs' girls tennis team left the courts feeling positive about their performances.

"We're not getting blown away, so the hope is there," said KHS coach Laura Hilfinger.

Though Kingman (1-5) mustered just two team points against Prescott (5-1), three different Lady Bulldogs tasted victory. Cortney McCans and Lara Iozzo teamed up for a No. 1 doubles win over Kennedi Todd and Sarah Jane Schoot, 8-5, and Kingman's Trudy Massie defeated Ellie Foreste in No. 3 singles, 6-0, 6-3.

McCans-Iozzo had control in the win over Todd-Schoot. The teams battled to a 2-2 tie in the eight-game pro set, but that's when the Lady Bulldogs pulled away from the Badgers. McCans began the fifth game with two double faults but came back when her serve got on track. Iozzo capitalized on McCans' next service point with deft play at the net, and McCans put the game away with a service winner down the T.

McCans-Iozzo then broke Prescott's serve at love to lead, 4-2. Iozzo nailed an ace and almost had another as the Kingman duo gave up just one point in the seventh game for a 5-2 lead. The teams traded games won before Iozzo stepped up in the 10th to put Kingman ahead, 7-3.

Todd-Schoot made some noise to get back in the match and won the next two to narrow the lead, 7-5. However, McCans' ace to end the next game gave the Lady Bulldogs the win, 8-5.

Iozzo lost to Schoot in No. 2 singles, 6-2, 6-3, but the Kingman junior showed she could compete.

When Iozzo was aggressive and going after her shots, that's when she put heat on Schoot.

"Lara does really well for about 30 minutes," Hilfinger said. "Then she begins to back off."

Kingman next plays at Bradshaw Mountain (4-1) at 3:30 p.m. today in Prescott Valley.
