Coaches comments: It was a close game and they scored with 59 seconds left for the winning score. They were up 14-0 and we came back to make it 12-14. We decided to go for two to tie after missing the first PAT and made it to tie it up with approximately 3:50 left. They then moved the ball down the field and scored with 59 seconds left. We got down to approximately their 15 yard line and ran out of time.
I've watched several freshman football teams gather for the first time to take the field. Many are a bit quiet and timid as they fight the nerves of their first game, but not this 2019 group, they were confident and ready to go to battle. After a few early mistakes, the team began to execute their game plan and put the pressure on the Jaguars.
On the first play from scrimmage to start the game, the Jaguars fumbled and Tracy looked like they were going finish up their first offensive series with a score, however the Bulldogs gave the ball back to the Jaguars on a fumble of their own on the 9 yard line. Fast forward to the end of the first quarter and the Bulldogs got their first score of the season on a 20 yard run by Santiago Mahoney with 44 seconds left. The extra point was no good and Tracy took a 6-0 lead into the 2nd quarter.
Kaleb Larson would get the next Bulldog score with a 1 yard run with 5:32 left in the 2nd. The two point conversion by Cameron Ross-Escobar made it 14-0.
Late in the 2nd with 1:49 left, Andres Gamboa intercepted a pass and went 36 yards for the score. The kick by Anthony Blake made it 21-0 going into the half.
David Garcia rushed 18 yards with 4:56 left in the 3rd to push the score to 27-0. Another kick was made by Blake to make 28-0.
Kimball got on the board early in the 4th to make it 28-8 but Tracy would accelerate further ahead with two more scores to put the finishing touches on Kimball.
Coach Fishburn was really proud of his team in their debut performance. "Our guys did a really good job implementing what they learned in practice to gameday considering we did not have any film on Kimball. The offensive and defensive line were really solid in their play and we were able to control the ball which made everything so much easier in the game. I believe we never punted the whole game. It was a good all around performance for our guys," said Fishburn.
