KINGMAN - Though the night was clear and any remnant of snow had left Kingman by game time Thursday, the Lake Havasu boys soccer team faced an avalanche as the Kingman Bulldogs buried the Knights, 16-0.

Kingman (4-0) launched 52 shots on goal at the Havasu (0-2) keepers for the game. The Knights' starting keeper, Humberto Alvarez, recorded 31 saves despite surrendering 10 goals before being removed.

"Passing was great and runs to the goal were good," said KHS coach Kevin Wilkerson. "Everything just came together."

Most of the damage came in the second half after the Bulldogs led at intermission, 4-0.

For a span of four minutes, it looked like the Knights would make things interesting.

Kingman's David Amador scored the first two goals in the fifth and seven minutes. Brett Sipe made it 3-0 in the 11th, but the Bulldogs' scoring machine temporarily broke down.

Havasu's Khayman Nunez broke down the left sideline in the 15th and appeared to have an angle toward the goal protected by Bulldogs' keeper Eric Venenga. From out of nowhere, Kingman defenseman Steven Bonfield came from behind Nunez and thwarted the attempt.

The Knights weren't done applying pressure, and they had another opportunity four minutes later. Venenga chased after a ball and found himself out of position with the goal unattended.

The Bulldogs' defensive line of Bonfield, Randy Lengel, Michael Robertson and Dustin Drach stopped two Havasu shots on goal to preserve the shutout.

Daniel Riccardi scored Kingman's final goal of the first half, assisted by Drach, in the 36th minute.

Amador and Bjorn Porlein both scored four goals in the match. Sipe netted his second consecutive hat trick with three, and Jay McNiven added two. Riccardi and Manuel Tadeo each contributed one, and the Bulldogs were awarded an own goal.

Tadeo was the charitable Bulldog with five assisted goals. Amador had three assists, and Sipe finished with two. Drach, Porlein and McNiven each recorded one.

"The start of our season is progressively going in the right direction," Wilkerson said.

Kingman hosts River Valley (1-1) in its next game at 7 p.m. Tuesday.
