Kingman Academy closed out the regular season with a 31-12 win over Peoria Accelerated Friday afternoon. The concern now for KAHS coach Dave Scroggins is how a long layoff will affect his team.

The Lady Tigers aren't scheduled to play until the week of Feb. 18, when the 3A Charter Athletic Association playoffs are set to begin. The 12-day layoff alarms Scroggins.

"It makes me a little wary," Scroggins said. "We went down (to Phoenix) in the first game (of the playoffs last year) and barely beat West Phoenix to make it into the finals. It's a little bit nerve-racking."

KAHS beat West Phoenix 29-27 in the semifinals of last year's playoffs after a two-week break that was extended by a few days when Phoenix South Ridge forfeited the opening round game. The Lady Tigers ended up falling to Phoenix Southpointe 47-37 in the championship game.

This year, Scroggins is looking at scheduling some scrimmages in order to help better prepare his team for the playoffs.

Currently, KAHS (11-6) holds the No. 3 seed in the playoffs behind No. 1 EVAC, a team the Tigers lost to twice, including a 37-20 defeat on Feb. 1, and No. 2 Southpointe.

If the playoffs were to begin today, the Lady Tigers would face Mesa Heritage. That's another concern for Scroggins, since the Lady Tigers have yet to play them this year and he doesn't know anything about them.

"I have no idea. We've played them in the past. If their program is the same I know what to expect," Scroggins said. "But it's the CAA and I don't know what to expect from night to night. You gear up for them to come at you one way and they come at you another way."

Ashlea Tomlinson led KAHS Friday with seven points while Hanna Mousley added six.

The Lady Tigers jumped to an 11-3 lead after the first quarter and held a 14-3 lead at halftime. KAHS increased its lead to 25-6 after the third quarter.
