KINGMAN – The Kingman High School boys soccer team proved no deficit is too large as it rallied Tuesday for a 3-2 win at Paradise Honors.

“It was a great comeback win,” said Bulldogs head coach Kevin Roberts. “We had great ball control, good defense and great intensity. We are 2-0 in (the region) and taking it game by game.”

Kingman’s Juan Ipina scored the game-winning goal off an assist from Yahir Boo. Marcos Silva tallied the other two goals as the Bulldogs overcame a 2-0 halftime deficit.

John Michael O’Malley and Ipina each finished with an assist.

“The chemistry is gaining on every game with our defense,” Roberts said. “Charles Williamson had a great defensive match, gave good long balls.”
