TRACY 0 - 0 - 7- 7 = 14
CENTRAL CATHOLIC 27 - 24 - 7 - 0 = 58
It was a quick finish to the Bulldogs season in Modesto on Friday night as the Central Catholic Raiders scored on their first play from scrimmage and put the pedal to the metal the rest of the first half to finish off the Bulldogs 2019 season.
The Raiders chewed through the Bulldog defense to score seven touchdowns and one field goal in the first half. The Raiders would generate 411 yards in total offense with most of that coming in the first half with their first team. The Bulldogs were unable to mount any type of drive in the first half and only earned a first down at the 8 minute mark of the 2nd quarter. Tracy was never able to drive the ball into Central Catholic territory in the first half.
In the 2nd half with the clock running, Tracy was able to put two scores on the board as Chase Henderson helped to setup a Logan Fife to Tommy Chavez touchdown pass with 3:41 left in the 3rd quarter. Matthew Giulliaci got the extra point to get Tracy on the scoreboard at 51-7.
In the 4th quarter Austin Ho-sy and Riley Revino made some positive things happen on the ground which culminated in a 23 yard run by the Sophomore Ho-sy to give Tracy their final score of the season. Giuliacci finished his solid year of kicking with another extra point.
Logan Fife playing in his final game as a Bulldog was 6 of 21 for 94 yards and one touchdown pass. He rushed for a hard fought 35 yards on 7 carries.
Chase Henderson had 50 yards rushing on 8 carries. Ho-sy had 35 yards on 4 carries, and Revino gained 19 yards on 3 carries.
Tommy Chavez has 2 receptions for 53 yards and one TD.
Solo tackles leaders were John Palmer and Cameron Pereira (3), Noah Deneau, and Blake Vollbrecht with 2 each.
For the Bulldogs, the season ends with a disappointing 4-7 record.

In a game that was severely slowed by 30 flags for 280 yards the Bulldogs got the win in the 24th annual Crosstown Classic that took 3 hours and 19 minutes to complete. With all the play stoppages, it was a tough game to watch for the fans and hard for the players to find any rhythm. It was a shame that a spirited game between the two schools was impacted so heavily by the delays.
Both teams started off with a little bit of a sluggish start but Tracy finally got on the board with 3:29 left in the first quarter on a Logan Fife 2 yard run. Matt Giuliacci's kick was good. West responded early in the 2nd quarter with a 25 yard touchdown and scored just a minute later on a 76 yard pass play to take an unexpected 13-7 lead. Tracy would take the lead back with 7 minutes left in the half on a 50 yard passing TD followed by a 2 point conversion. The Bulldogs put two more scores on West before the half with a 3 yard run by Nate Stroup and a 22 yard touchdown pass from Fife to Tommy Chavez. The Dogs stopped a West drive late to walk into halftime with a 29-13 lead.
Chavez helped increase the Tracy lead to 35-13 coming out of the half on a 7 yard rushing touchdown. Austin HoSy had an 8 yard rushing TD with 6:38 left in the quarter to really put the heat on West at 42-13. West got back in the hunt with a 21 yard TD pass to make it 42-21. Closing out the 3rd quarter Fife found Jason Goularte for 14 yards to make it 48-21.
There was still a lot of scoring to be had in the slow 4th quarter but a Noah Deneau pass to HoSy gave Tracy enough of a lead to withstand the late scoring assault by West.
Tracy and West put up 1022 of combined offense in this Crosstown Classic. West actually had 70 more passing yards than Tracy but six less first downs.
Logan Fife was 17 of 23 for 295 yards passing with 3 touchdown throws. Tommy Chavez, Chase Henderson, Austin HoSy and Jason Goularte each had receiving TDs. HoSy, Chavez, Nate Stroup and Fife each had rushing TDs. Derek Saenz led all defenders with 6 solo tackles.

It was a shootout in the Grape Bowl on Friday evening with 831 yards of total offense. Tracy needed to score almost every time they had the ball to hold off a persistent Lodi team that kept scrambling to stay in the game.
Tracy would score on every possession in the first half with only one exception late in the 2nd quarter. Lighting up the first half scoreboard for Tracy was the Logan Fife to Trevor Pope connection. Lodi had no answer for the dynamic duo but ultimately the connection had to end after their 2nd touchdown early in the 2nd quarter when Pope was sidelined after being tackled in the end zone. Other Tracy first half scores consisted of a 2 yard keeper by Fife, and a 1 yard run by Riley Revino.
The Tracy defense was challenged a lot in the first half by the elusiveness of the Lodi quarterback and running back but improved in the 2nd half and locked Lodi down when they had to late in the game. At halftime Lodi held a 28-26 advantage.
Tracy quickly took the lead in the 2nd half on their first possession as the Dogs put a nice drive together consisting of a Revino 26 yard run, a 26 yard pass to Vollbrecht and a Chase Henderson 3 yard touchdown run to take a 34-28 lead. After a Lodi score to pull within one, Tracy mounted another drive involving Fife, Nate Stroup, Chase Henderson and Tommy Chavez. The drive culminated in a 13 yard touchdown pass to Jacob Shrout to take a 42-35 lead.
The Tracy defense stopped another Lodi drive to begin the 4th quarter and four minutes later Chase Henderson ran it in from 3 yards out to give Tracy their biggest lead of the night 48-35.
With 7 minutes left, Lodi started a very long drive but it was terminated with an interception by Tommy Chavez in the back of the end zone thereby extinguishing the Flames for the evening.
The win keeps Tracy in the playoff picture as an "At Large" bid but the Dogs must take care of business next week hosting rival West in the 24th annual Crosstown Classic.

TRACY 7 - 14 - 13 - 7 = 41
LINCOLN 13 - 21 - 7 - 21 = 62
Tracy came to Lincoln and had the tough task of trying to give Lincoln their first loss of the season. In a game that saw 103 points scored, the Bulldogs played a very competitive game and actually tied the game in the middle of the 3rd quarter, but as well as the Bulldog offense responded, the defense could not put the brakes on the Trojan offense. Tracy kept it close until about 5 minutes left when Lincoln would add on two more scores that could not be matched by Tracy late in the game.
Tracy matched Lincoln in offense with 509 yards vs Lincoln's 526. Tracy maintained a 9 minute advantage in possession and passed for 227 yards compared to only 94 for the Trojans. Where the Lincoln advantage was very evident was in their 432 rushing yards compared to 282 for Tracy.
Logan Fife was 14 of 30 for 227 yards and 3 touchdowns. Trevor Pope led all receivers with 7 receptions for 129 yards and 2 TDs. Riley Revino had 95 yards on the ground in 16 carries with a TD. Tommy Chavez had 6 carries for 71 yards and 2 touchdowns. Blake Vollbrecht also had a touchdown.
Lincoln's star running back, Jonah Coleman had 184 yards and found the end zone 4 times on the night.
Tracy must now prevail against St. Mary's next week as the Bulldogs will celebrate Homecoming at Wayne Schneider Stadium.

Tracy got off to a good start in league with 463 yards of offense in game one of TCAL action at Wayne Schneider Stadium versus the Tokay Tigers. Tracy had a quick and comfortable start with the Dogs generating the first three scores on two Trevor Pope rushing touchdowns of 34 and 15 yards. Tommy Chavez added another touchdown with a 46 yard run. Matt Giuliacci was perfect on the night with 7 extra points and one field goal.
Tokay bent but did not break from the Tracy onslaught as they came out and scored twice in the second quarter. With the Tracy coaching staff starting to get a bit stressed, the Dogs responded with two more scores before the half to head to the locker room a little more comfortable at 35-14.
Logan Fife had one more touchdown to accomplish in the 3rd quarter as he found Tommy Chavez for a 25 yard TD. In the 4th, Chase Henderson had a 2 yard rushing touchdown and Guiliacci connected for a 34 yard field goal to finish the game 52-14.
Fife was 11 of 13 for 196 yards and 1 touchdown. Noah Denau was 1 for 4 for 16 yards. Trevor Pope lead all rushers with 72 yards and Tommy Chavez had 54.
Blake Vollbrecht had 4 receptions for 78 yards, Chavez was 3 for 49 and Riley Revino was 2 for 48.
Defensively, Brandon Summers had 3 solo tackles, Derek Saenz, Omar Contreras, Cameron Pereira, Jordan Matson, Deneau, and Pope each had 2 tackles.
The celebration of the league win will be short lived as Tracy now enters the most critical stretch of their season facing two very tough league opponents in Lincoln and St. Mary's.
VACAVILLE - 28 - 7- 14 - 0 = 49
TRACY 7 - 21 - 7 - 0 = 35
In the first quarter of this game there was talk from the Tracy old timers on the sidelines of a Vacaville blowout, then all of a sudden, the Tracy offense kicked into high gear providing the fans and players with a large dose of excitement. Throughout the 2nd and 3rd quarters Tracy had multiple opportunities to tie the game or even show they could take the lead, but with each attempt, one of the five Tracy turnovers on the evening seemed to set them back.
Tracy and Vacaville would combine for 756 yards of offense with Logan Fife passing for 319 yards (16 of 34) and 3 touchdowns. Tommy Chavez had a great game collecting two touchdowns and 119 receiving yards. Trevor Pope led all receivers with 130 yards and hauled in one of Fife's touchdowns. Pope also had 70 yards rushing and another running touchdown, Fife had 51 yards and a keeper for a TD. Riley Revino had 38 yards and Chavez fought for 36 yards on the ground.
Defensively, Pope had 5 solo tackles, Derek Saenz, Kyle Silveira, and Omar Contreras each had four as the top Tracy tacklers.
After the first five weeks of the season, Tracy finds themselves with a disappointing 1-4 record, but it is very clear this team is improving and they have played some very challenging opponents that should set them up for much more positive things when they start league at home in two weeks vs Tokay.

Manteca 21 - 13 - 0 - 0 = 34
Tracy 0 - 6- 14 - 0 = 20
The Bulldogs were getting pounded by the Manteca running game in the first half and with the stadium showing signs of activity headed to the parking lot, many thought the 2nd half was going to be a snooze. Credit the Bulldogs though, because something clicked the moment they touched the ball in the 3rd quarter and everything the coaches have been wanting this season began to appear. The offense came alive and the defense which had been shredded in the first half, clamped down on the Buffaloes and held them scoreless.
The coaching staff was emotional at the end of the game talking about the heart and passion the players had in the game. "The 2nd half is what Tracy football is all about," said an emotional Coach Pribble. There were many players acknowledged that gave it their all, with Riley Revino getting the most recognition. Revino would score two of the three Tracy touchdowns and collected 148 hard fought yards on 21 carries from scrimmage. Blake Vollbrecht had four receptions for 97 yards to lead the Tracy receivers.....
Derek Saenz led Tracy with 5 tackles, Trevor Pope, Kyle Silveira, Jacob Shrout, Jordan Matson, and Omar Contreras had two tackles.
Tracy quarterback Logan Fife was under duress a lot in this game but produced 157 passing yards and rushed for 18 which included a score.
JV fall to Manteca 46-13
More details and all the photos coming later Saturday. A few pics down below.
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.

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.
Total Offense - Tracy 265 / BC 380

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.
