King City football

So it's not the road uniforms. It's the bus.
Or maybe it's just leaving the King City city limits. Because it's not the same bus or the same driver that takes them each time there is a road game.
If you're counting, and some of us are, the Mustangs have now won six straight road games dating back to last season.
No one can explain it. Or the fact that King City has dropped five straight home games.
Again it should be noted that those five losses have come from three teams that won a league title last year, and two teams that are a combined 8-1 this year.
 Still, some people -- coaches -- in south county are superstitious, which is why King City went with the road whites in their last home game two weeks ago.
 Didn't pan out.
 It's clear that if King City has aspirations of ending a 10 year playoff drought, the road will likely be its ticket this fall with games at Carmel, Pacific Grove and next Friday in Soledad.
 Of course, you still have to get on the field and perform. In their two wins, the Mustangs defense has forced nine turnovers with Tommy Stephens intercepting four passes.
 But in its two losses, King City is minus four in turnover ratio, with one of the turnovers being a pick six.
 That's the real story.
