KHS girls post early soccer win

KINGMAN - A season ago it took the Kingman High girls soccer team until Jan. 21 to earn its first victory. Though this year's squad has dropped three matches, the Lady Bulldogs already have their first win - on Dec. 5 they prevailed over Lake Havasu, 7-0.

Kingman (1-3 D-II) beat Havasu (0-4) behind the strength of Paulina Delgado's three goals. Alyssa McBride found the net twice, and Haley Moore and Brooklyn Ness each scored one. Ness scored on a header when she took Liz Angle's corner kick out of the air.

The Lady Bulldogs lost to Coconino (4-0) in a hard fought battle Tuesday in Flagstaff, 3-0.

"I am really proud of how they played," said KHS coach Jenny Johnston. "This was one of our best games yet. They talked well, passed well, and controlled the ball often."

Keeper Deanna Pettit played a strong game for the Lady Bulldogs, recording 30 saves in the loss. She was assisted by her defensive line - Ness, Lorelei Jacobson, Destiny Martinez, Megan Gaul and Brianna Gastineau - in keeping the game close.

"The defense worked really well together to keep the score down," said Johnston.

Offensively, Delgado, McBride, Shelby Mott and Rachel Bracken kept pressure on the Coconino defense but just couldn't close the deal for Kingman.

"Their keeper was very proactive and came out often to take opportunities away," the coach said. "It was a really fun game to watch with a couple of close, almost goals for both teams."

Kingman also suffered a loss to Mohave (2-1 D-III, 4-3) on Dec. 12 in Bullhead City, 7-0. Though the T-birds scored seven, Pettit secured another 30 saves for the Lady Bulldogs.

"We played pretty well and put some good passes together," Johnston said. "We just couldn't get a goal."

Kingman opened its season Dec. 4 with an 11-0 loss to Yuma Kofa (5-1 D-II) at KHS. After the winter break, the Lady Bulldogs get back in action with three home matches. They host Havasu Jan. 7, Yuma Jan. 8, and Prescott Jan. 10 - all starting at 6 p.m.
