Tigers flatten Desert Hills

According to Kingman Academy acting head football coach Wally Mueller, when the Tigers lost to Phoenix Southpointe a couple of weeks ago, it woke a sleeping giant.

Friday night that giant was out in full force. That was good news for KAHS, but bad news for Gilbert Desert Hills in a 41-0 win in Gilbert.

"I was proud of them. They were finally playing smash mouth football," Mueller said.

Westin McCord led the Tigers with a pair of touchdowns, including one on a punt return.

McCord has been sidelined over the last couple of weeks with a broken arm he suffered earlier in the year. However, Friday night McCord proved to be a force to reckon with despite playing with a cast on his arm.

"He was playing like a man on fire," Mueller said. "He was just in the right place at the right time and was very aggressive."

Friday was the second meeting for KAHS against Desert Hills. The Tigers defeated Desert Hills 60-0 on Sept. 1 to open the season, but since then KAHS hasn't been as dominating as in previous years.

However, with the loss to Southpointe and the dominating win Friday, Mueller is hopeful the Tigers will get back to their old ways heading into the second half of the season.

"It was a huge confidence builder for these guys and they are excited," Mueller said. "I think with their past performances they realized that they were mortals and now they are back."

KAHS returns home Saturday for a rematch with Southpointe. It will be the Tigers Homecoming as they are expected to debut their new helmets.
