Kingman High quarterback Tyler Logas scrambles away from Willow Canyon’s Andonis Hernandez in the second half of the Bulldogs’ 21-6 loss Friday night in Surprise. Logas ended the night completing 5 of 8 passes for 54 yards while spliting time with Sean Curran.

Last week, Kingman High fell short in its David vs. Goliath matchup with Division II's 10th-ranked Surprise Willow Canyon, 21-6.

Tonight the Bulldogs will have another giant to slay when Division I's 14th-ranked Surprise Valley Vista comes to Kingman.

"They are pretty balanced," said KHS coach Rob York. "You stop one and hopefully they make mistakes with the other one."

When it comes to Valley Vista (6-1), it's a matter of the Bulldogs picking their poison. The Monsoon is averaging 149 yards passing per game, including 146 yards in last week's 42-0 win over Tolleson, and 155 rushing yards a game. They racked up 196 yards last week.

"We are going to try and make them throw," York said. "They are more reliable too get turnovers if they are throwing the ball 40 to 50 times compared to running the ball 40 to 50 times with 5 yards a carry."

Valley Vista will be led by Dalvin Richardson, a dual threat quarterback with 939 passing yards, 10 touchdowns and four interceptions to go along with his 356 rushing yards on 58 carries and seven touchdowns.

"They are good and they have a real good quarterback - throws well and gets out of the pocket," York said. "We are going to stop the run. That's been our plan every week. They are not a power running team like Willow Canyon was, but they still do it well."

KHS lost to Valley Vista last year, 25-15 in Surprise, which included a late charge by the Bulldogs that cut the lead to one possession late in the fourth quarter.

Injury update

KHS (3-4) will be without Cody Waite, who suffered a broken leg in last week's loss and is done for the year. Garion Carey is also expected to miss tonight as he recovers from a concussion he suffered against Flagstaff.

The good news for KHS is Matt Waite will return after missing last week's game for team reasons.

Chasing Book

Bulldogs wide receiver Joseph Scott enters the game three touchdown receptions shy of Greg Book's school record of 10 touchdowns in a season.

Band day - $1 admission

Any KHS student who shows up with a school shirt will receive $1 admission. Members of the Kingman Middle School band will be playing with the Kingman High marching band during pregame.
