KINGMAN - When the Lamar Advertising Red Raiders take the field at 7:45 p.m. Thursday on Field 6 at Southside Park against Lake Havasu in the District 9 Senior Tournament of Champions semifinals, they most likely will be trying to keep this season's perfect record intact.

The Red Raiders were 13-0 heading into their season finale Tuesday and will represent Kingman. Whereas the Red Raiders want to finish the season unbeaten, but Havasu presents a significant challenge.

The senior-level age group ranges from 13- to 16-year-olds, and Havasu could have high school varsity pitchers on its staff.

"It's going to be a real tough game," said Red Raiders manager Brien Giglio. "They're going to have good pitching."

The Red Raiders will try to answer that pitching with a potent offense that has averaged more than 14 runs per game on the season. Kenyon Rowley leads the team with a .677 batting average. Paul Giglio has hit at a .485 clip, and Kyle Henson batted .448.

"If we have good pitching and good defense, that will keep us in the game. And if we hit well, then we'll win it," Giglio said.

The Red Raiders' pitching staff enters the tournament with a 1.919 earned run average. They've surrendered just 18 earned runs in 65-2/3 innings pitched on the season. Rowley has a 0.28 ERA, Paul Giglio is at 1.909 and Kannon Butler has given up 3.706. Rowley is expected to make the start against Havasu.

"Kenyon mixes his speeds up real well, can locate the ball and is always around the plate," Giglio said. "He's a smart pitcher and doesn't give up the cheap stuff like walks too often."

The Red Raiders' biggest area of concern could be fielding. The team has a .885 fielding percentage as they've committed 32 errors in the regular season. As a result, though the Red Raiders have only given up those 18 earned runs, they have surrendered 21 unearned runs.

The winner advances to the championship game against the winner of Mohave Valley - Blythe, Calif., at 7 p.m. Friday, also on Field 6 at Southside Park.
