The Kingman Bulldogs put up a valiant effort, but by the end of the game, the Chino Valley Cougars notched a 27-20 win. 

To top off their victorious evening, the Cougars crowned their 2017 Homecoming Queen and King. Congratulations to Homecoming Queen Paige Achten and King Trevor Kuntze.

Kingman was the first on the board with a TD 6 minutes into the 2nd quarter. However, their 2 pt. conversion failed, leaving the score at 6-0. Two minutes later, Chino Valley comes up with their firs tscore of the evening on a 25 yard rushing TD by Michael Paulus (#5). The point after TD was good, and the Cougars take the lead 7-6.

But, Kingman isn’t about to let that stand, and shortly afterwards, an 80 yard rushing TD by Austin Dias (#4) for the Bulldogs ups the score to 12-7. Once again the Kingman team attempts a 2 pt. conversion, and once again it fails. Score at this point? 12-7, Bulldogs.

With just one minute before halftime, Canyon Brimhall (#25) scores on a 33 yard rushing TD. The score is 13-12, in favor of the Cougars, with a missed point after kick.

The third quarter was pretty uneventful for the first ten minutes, until Aaron Morgan (#15) completed a thrilling 85 yard TD pass. With a good PAT, the score was now 20-12 in favor of the Cougars. 

Chino Valley scored again at the end of the 4th quarter, bringing the score to 27-12. However, Kingman wasn’t giving up, and with less than a minute on the clock, scored their third TD. This time, their two point rush conversion was good, and the final score was 27-20.

Final score: Chino Valley 27, Kingman 20.
