KINGMAN - Early foul trouble spelled doom and the Kingman High girls basketball team suffered their first regular-season loss Tuesday to Coconino in Flagstaff, 52-36. The foul trouble kept the Lady Bulldogs from playing their style of basketball in the AIA Division II Section 1 game.

Senior starters Alison Owen and Taylor Reed picked up two fouls each in the early going. "We couldn't press and that's the main thing we do," said KHS coach Danny Gonzalez. "We came out flat, and we couldn't hit the broad side of a barn."

Despite all that, Kingman (1-1 S-1, 11-1 D-II) trailed by just four at halftime, 28-24. Turnovers proved costly to the Lady Bulldogs as Coconino (2-0, 9-3) took the advantage in the second half and outscored Kingman, 24-12.

"No loss is a good loss, especially at this point," Gonzalez said. "Not everything is about wins and losses, but the way we played is a bit upsetting. I thought we could work past the obstacles, but we played with no gas."

Playing flat and uninspired may stem from the fact the Lady Bulldogs had just whipped Coconino Jan. 14 at KHS, 54-34.

"We don't need to be mad at ourselves," the coach said. "If we are going to be mad, I hope it's not at the outcome. I hope it's in the back of their minds to be upset with the way they played."

Reed and Desirae Gonzalez led the Lady Bulldogs with 10 points each. Rachel Arave and Heather Weninger both scored five, Owen finished with four and Stephanie Goulart added two.

"Hopefully, a loss like this means something to them as a team and as individuals," Gonzalez said. "You don't want to lose with a performance like that."

The Lady Bulldogs look to reestablish their winning ways when they travel to play Prescott (1-1, 6-5) in another section game at 7 p.m. today.

"We'll make sure we won't carry it with us," the coach said. "No one had their heads down. We walked out of there standing tall. We'll get through it, but we'll do it together."
