Varsity got some much needed time off from football until Monday to regroup and recover. It will be nice to finally play at home for the next several weeks as the Dogs have put some long bus miles in the past two weeks. Don't look now but our next two opponents just won by a combined score of 91-0 on Friday night.

The Bulldogs of Turlock roughed up the Tracy Bulldogs in all three games Thursday in the triple header of football.

Turlock 12-17-14-0 = 43
Turlock racked up 472 yards on Tracy with the bulk of it coming from 325 yards of rushing. Tracy got big played by Turlock early and often with the curtains being dropped shortly after halftime when Turlock generated two quick scores to put the game way out of reach.
Offensively Logan Fife found Trevor Pope early in the game for a 26 yard score (photo) but there would be no more Tracy scoring until late in the 4th when Fife connected with Blake Vollbrecht for an 11 yard touchdown (photo).
TRACY 7-0-14-0 - 21
BUHACH COLONY 13-14-8-0 - 35
It was a late starting game in Atwater Friday night due to a lot of Buhach Colony injuries in the earlier JV game. When the varsity finally kicked off at 8 p.m., the Thunder let Tracy know they came to play. Tracy was mentally and physically off balance early in the game as numerous miscues placed them in a hole early and rose the blood pressure of the coaching staff. Coach Shrout thought the first half of football was one of the worst he had seen at Tracy High. Defense, offense, and special teams all received failing grades from the coaching staff at halftime. Players were out of position, assignments were being missed, and special teams had several lapses.
In the 2nd half the Bulldogs cleaned their act up and showed more fight and discipline.
"We thought we were going to win this one, we should of won this one, but we dug ourselves a hole early and there were a lot of things to discuss at halftime with the team," said coach Shrout. "Our defense improved in the 2nd half and we handled our assignments better. The offensive line was better in the 2nd half as well. It was a tale of two halves. This one should hurt a bit because we let it get away."
Buhach Colony spedster Youlas Dickson scored twice in the first quarter on a 51 yard touchdown run and an 80 yard kickoff return to answer an earlier 62 yard TD run by Trevor Pope. Tracy trailed 13-7 entering the 2nd quarter
Buhach Colony continued to pressure the Tracy defense with their running game led by Anthony Berry in this half. He had TD runs of 55 yards and 6 yards. Tracy also served up good field position for the Thunder with sloppy play. At halftime Tracy trailed 27-7.
At the 7:31 mark of the 3rd, Logan Fife found a wide open Trevor Pope for an 18 yard touchdown pass to inch closer 27-13. Late in the 3rd Buhach would add on with a rushing TD and a two point conversion to make it 35-13.
Late in the 3rd, Fife threw a perfect pass to Riley Revino down the left sidelines who then kicked in the afterburners and rocketed to the end zone. The Giuliacci kick made it 35-21.
In the 4th, Tracy got more momentum and Fife found Jacob Shrout in the end zone, but a holding call ruined the moment and the drive. It would be the last spark for Tracy as the Thunder then ran the clock out.

A confident Bulldog team took the field, but they quickly realized their practice execution was not translating to success on the game field and they had to fight to pull off a 27-12 victory over the Jaguars. The coaches were quick to acknowledge this was not the same Kimball opponent they throttled last year 75-12. The Jaguars showed a lot of improvement and gave Tracy some frustration through the first half. Thwarting the Bulldogs from feeling good about the win, were 2 interceptions, 3 lost fumbles, and 9 penalties.
On the bright side, the aerial connection of Fife to Pope was working pretty well as Pope had 3 touchdowns.
Defensively, Riley Revino had 4 solo tackles, Omar Contreras, Blake Vollbrecht, Brandon Summers, Pope, and Jordan Matson each had 3.
New kicker Matthew Guilacci was perfect with his 3 extra point attempts.
The leading Bulldog rusher was Riley Revino with 98 yards on 21 carries.
In their post game remarks, the coaching staff stated they were moving on from this game and Monday was going to be all focused on preparing for their trip to Buhach Colony.
