Lodi punished Tracy with 401 yards of offense with 374 of those on the ground. Tracy got off to a nice start on Senior Night in their first series with Drew Frederick connecting with Jake Shrout for a 21 yard completion. A 15 yard penalty setup a pass from Frederick to Jason Goularte over the middle for the first score. Kyle Wright's kick made it 7-0 and things looked bright. Lodi then began numerous series where they wore out the Bulldog defense. In the end Lodi would score 6 touchdowns and two field goals in their 31 minute command of the clock. Tracy could only muster a 15 yard Austin Ho-Sy rushing touchdown in the 3rd quarter and a1 yard run by Cody Lammerts late in the game to get Tracy their 21 points.
Frederick was 9 of 17 for 106 yards and the early touchdown pass. Ho-Sy led all rushers with 81 yards on 12 attempts. Tommy Chavez had two carries for 24 yards, Lammerts and Chase Henderson each had 12 yards on 3 carries.
Defensively, Steven Garcia was the leading tackler with 6, Cameron Pereira had 5, Khalil Walls, had 4, to lead the Dogs.

Tracy scored early in this game and things looked bright but the party was short lived as a heavy dose of Rams football was administered through much of the game. There were some bright spots in the running and passing game and Drew Frederick did a nice job coming in for Noah Deneau at quarterback who left with a foot injury in the first half.
Deneau tied the game early in the first quarter when he took the ball 68 yards up the middle for a score. The Kyle Wright extra point made it even at seven. Just eleven seconds later though the Rams struck for a 70 yard touchdown pass and then scored twice more in the quarter to land a 27-7 lead after the first quarter. Defensive frustration continued into the second quarter as the Rams scored again to take a 34-7 lead. Frederick who had now replaced Deneau threw one pick six but did connect with Gabe Andora for a beautiful 32 yard touchdown. The Wright extra point made it 41-14 as the half arrived.
Tracy could not score in the second half but the coaches did emphasize the 376 yards of offense that was a bright spot in the game.
Drew Frederick was 6 of 18 for 73 yards and his one passing touchdown. He rushed 10 times for 55 yards. Noah Deneau was a perfect 4 of 4 for 57 yards. He rushed for 95 yards of which the bulk of it was his score.
Gabe Andora had 4 receptions for 95 yards and Shrout had three receptions

Although Tracy was dominated by a strong Lincoln team, the Bulldogs can be proud of an offensive performance in their season opener that generated 395 yards and had balance on the ground and in the air.
Noad Deneau in his first varsity start was 8 of 12 for 170 yards and 2 passing touchdowns. Deneau also rushed for 77 yards and one score. Austin Ho-Sy had 9 carries for 86 yards and a TD. Cody Lammerts had 30 yards on two touches, Chase Henderson had 4 carries for 15 yards, and Tommy Chavez had 2 carries for 12 yards. Chavez would also have 2 receptions for 100 yards with one touchdown. Deneau also connected with Logan Murrary for 36 yards, Henderson for 30, and Jacob Shrout for 7.
It was a tough night for the Tracy defense to contain the Trojans, but the leading tacklers were, Shrout (6), Pereira (4), Andora (4), Lammerts (3), Ramirez (2), Tyler Ward (2), and Steven Garcia (1).
Tracy had 395 yards of offense compared to the beefy 525 of Lincoln. Lincoln was undisciplined with 13 penalties compared to just 3 for Tracy.
Overall, the Tracy coaches praised their team for giving Lincoln more of a game than Lincoln probably planned for. There were many times during the four quarters, that the Tracy persistence, frustrated Lincoln and had them losing their rhythm. This Lincoln team is one of the best many years and Tracy had a good first opponent to gain a benchmark.
Hundreds of photos coming later tonight and over the weekend.

It would take until the 3rd quarter for Tracy to pull away from Tokay and secure the first Bulldog victory of the season. Other than a Khalil Walls 28 yard rushing touchdown, there was no Bulldog scoring until the 3rd quarter when Chase Henderson had a 15 yard rush up the middle followed by a Austin Ho-Sy 2 point conversion. Walls would add another touchdown to his resume late in the 3rd on a 31 yard run. Ho-Sy provided insurance late in the game with a 4 yard rushing TD. Kyle Wright was good on two extra points and Pedro Barbosa got the last one.
The Bulldog ground game dominated Tokay picking up 311 yards. The Bulldog defense only allowed 94 yards on the ground and 26 in the air.
