Lodi and Tracy exchanged punches all night long and an exciting game went right down to the depths of the 4th quarter when Lodi took the lead and held off a final attempt by Tracy to march down the field.
The Bulldogs played extremely hard in all phases and it was a hard loss to swallow as this game had many highlights for the Dogs. They were close to taking a commanding position in the 3rd quarter to possibly put the game out of reach but momentum swung in favor of Lodi as the latter part of the 2nd half unfolded.
Q1 6:54 Utilizing a similar offense as the Bulldogs, Lodi takes the first drive of the game down the field to eventually score on a 2 yard run. 7-0.
Q1 5:33 Cameron Ross starts the first offensive series with a nice pitch to Dwayne Thomas who runs it to midfield. After another Thomas gain, Austin Ho-Sy takes it 31 yards down the left side for the first of several Tracy scores on the night. The kick by Kyle Wright is good to tie the game at 7-7.
The quarter ends 7-7
11:25 - Lodi scores on a 5 yard quarterback keeper. 14-0
9:05 - Tracy ties the game on a roll out by Ross who finds Mason Meyers for an approximate 23 yard touchdown pass. 14-14.
2:42 - Another long drive is assembled by the Flames and they score on a 5 yard QB keeper but the extra point hits the left upright and is no good Tracy 14 - Lodi 20
:56 seconds left. Ross finds Kurtis Maynor on a 10 yard initial post route that fades to corner for the score which gives Tracy a 21-20 lead at the half
Q3 10:47 Tracy gets the ball and starts strong on another long Ho-Sy run which then sets up an approximate 20 yard slant pass to Kurtis Maynor who gets his second TD of the night. The Wright kick is good again and Tracy opens up a 28-20 lead.
6:56 Tracy is playing some of their best defense of the night and finally stops the Lodi ground game to get the ball back at the Lodi 43. A great opportunity to add on is thwarted by Tracy miscues and the Dogs punt it away with 4:50 left in the 3rd quarter.
Tracy thought they had recovered a fumble on their own 20 yard line, but the refs keep the ball with the Flames. Lodi eventually scores and ties the game on a 17 yard rush with 1:30 left 28-28.
The end of the 3rd quarter ends on a sour note for Tracy as Lodi intercepts at midfield and return it back to the Tracy 20.
Q4 - 11:22 Lodi scores on a QB keeper 35-28.
6:17 Ho-Sy and Thomas contribute on long runs to eventually set up a stressful 4th and goal at the 6 yard line. Ross keeps the ball and fights hard to just get in the end zone. With the extra point we have a tie game 35-35.
6:07 - A long run back of the kick sets up great field position for Lodi at the Tracy 41. On the next play Lodi slices down to the 12. With 1:50 left, the Flames QB scores to put Lodi up 42-35.
With under 2 minutes left, Tracy takes the field for one last drive. They convert a 4th and 9 to get to their own 48 with 1:09 left. The game ends on a pass intended for Tyler Ward but is intercepted with 43 seconds left at the Lodi 25 yard line.

With Fall weather in the air at Vacaville on Friday night, the Vacaville Bulldogs put the chill on the Tracy game plan as Vacaville scored relatively easy in each quarter generating 486 yards of offense while only requiring 1/3 of the clock compared to Tracy. Tracy could not establish a passing game but did pound the ball 46 times against the Vacaville defense for 236 yards. Other than a Kyle Wright 31 yard field goal in the first quarter, Tracy would have to wait until late in the 3rd quarter to get their lone touchdown of the evening via a 59 yard run by Dwayne Thomas. The scoring play was setup two plays earlier by a nice kickoff return of 31 yards by Kurtis Maynor.
Drew Frederick was 2 of 5 for 72 yards passing and 2 interceptions. Cameron Ross-Escobar played the 2nd half and was 2 of 4 for 4 yards passing. He would run for 71 yards on 8 carries. Dwayne Thomas had 7 carries for 83 yards, and Austin Ho-Sy got the most touches with 20 for 71 yards.

Varsity recap: As the first several minutes of the varsity game ticked away, it looked like it was going to be a long night in Los Banos as there were numerous penalties and miscues by both sides. Finally with about 2+ minutes left in the quarter, Tracy recovered a fumble and then the offense focused and went to work. Mason Meyers, Austin Ho-Sy, Drew Frederick, and Dwayne Thomas delivered the firepower to get Tracy on the board first that culminated with a Frederick pass to Kurtis Maynor for a 16 yard touchdown. Kyle Wright would kick his first of seven extra point attempts on the night connecting on that one and then five others later in the night.
With 5 minutes left in the 2nd quarter, Tracy went up 14-0 when Cameron Ross ran for 15 yards. Ross would contribute to another score with 2:27 left in the half when he found Kurtis Maynor for a 28 yard touchdown pass.
Defensively in the first half, the Dogs progressively got tighter with their defense recovering a fumble on the 2nd Pacheco drive, generating an interception and keeping Pacheco locked up on their end of the field to finish the first half.
Coming out of halftime, Tracy assembled a 9 play drive starting on their 26. Ho-Sy, Meyers, Frederick and Thomas all contributed setting up a Ho-Sy 2 yard touchdown run. In the drive Meyers had a 41 yard run and Ho-Sy ran for 20.
At the 5 minute mark of the 3rd, Carlos Lopez recovered a fumble setting up a 7 play drive that featured Kyle Wright running for 6 yards, Frederick and Cody Lammerts each rushing for 9 yards, and Lammerts punching it in for the final two yards to give Tracy a 41-0 lead with 1:25 left in the quarter.
The fourth quarter had Tracy playing free and easy with Jeremiah Zamora intercepting a Panther pass at their 48. Ross would quarterback the drive which highlighted Marieiro Darrian having two carries for 13 and 9 yards, David Garcia running for 13 and 10 yards, and Wright wrapping things up with a 6 yard TD and extra point to finish off the Tracy scoring at 48-0.
Ho-Sy led the Bulldogs with 73 yards on 12 carries, followed by Mason Meyers with 72 on only 4 carries. Cameron Ross had 34 yards on 4 touches and Frederick scrambled 4 times for 31 yards. (See stats for complete rushing stats).
Kurtis Maynor led all receivers with 2 receptions for 44 yards.
Marieiro Darrain led all defenders with 4 solo tackles.
"We played with a purpose and had a great program win today with JV and Varsity combining to limit Pacheco to less than 20 total yards of offense," said head coach Jeff Pribble. "I really liked the team effort this evening," said Pribble as he addressed his team postgame.
With a 2-1 record and the Dogs feeling much better about the start to their season, a very big test comes in the form of Vacaville next Friday. Vacaville started their season with two wins; 45-8 over Davis and 17-10 over Oak Ridge. They have two recent losses to high end teams of Cardinal Newman 20-13 and Granite Bay 14-9.

It was a special evening as a large group of fans and a whole lot of spirit returned to Wayne Schneider Stadium after a silent Fall of 2020 and quiet spring of 2021 when five games were played during the COVID shortened season. In addition to the excitement of "normal" football returning, Tracy was celebrating it's Centennial year of football and the premiere of their new head coach, Jeff Pribble. Festivities for the Centennial included a plane towing a 100 year banner (see photo), Wayne Schneider performing the coin toss, and various signage around the stadium. Add to that the presence of a good Kimball crowd and we had plenty of energy at the stadium to kick off the season.
Play started on a sour note with a Tracy fumble and a Kimball five play scoring drive and then Tracy found themselves playing from behind the rest of the game. After Kimball recovered an onside kick, things looked stressful for Tracy early, but Jeremiah Zamora intercepted a Nicholas Coronado pass which would eventually lead to a six play Tracy scoring drive keeping things close early in the game 8-7.
Kimball kept the pressure on the Bulldog defense all night long scoring three times in the first half to take a 22-14 lead at halftime. Coronado and his offense generated 486 yards compared to 260 for Tracy.
The bright spot for Tracy on their opening night was the play of Dwayne Thomas who had 84 yards rushing and three touchdowns. Drew Frederick was 8 of 14 for 92 yards and one 4th quarter passing touchdown to Kurtis Maynor. Maynor would have two catches for 50 yards.
Evan Ramirez led all Bulldog defenders with four solo tackles and Khalil Walls had 4 solo.
Kyle Wright was good on all three of his point after tries.

Lincoln started off as advertised dominating the Tracy defense as they marched down the field for 3 quick scores in the first quarter. Tracy was able to rebound from the early punches thrown by the Trojans and almost scored in the first half but were thwarted at the 1 inch line. Lincoln added another score early in the 3rd quarter, but then Tracy was able to assemble two scores (Cameron Ross and Austin Ho-Sy) in the fourth to make the game respectable.
Tracy would almost match the Lincoln total offense yards on the night at 343 to 305. While the Bulldog passing game was subdued, the Dogs did generate 277 yards on the ground compared to 202 for Lincoln.
COACHES COMMENT: "I felt like we calmed down and executed the game plan for the last three quarters on defense and played well on offense, said Coach Jeff Pribble. "The speed of the game against these quality teams needs to be respected. We need to execute from the first snap and get comfortable being who we are. I do not think that Lincoln is better than us, they show up though with a little more confidence in winning the game than we do."
The 3 game Tracy home stand now concludes as the Bulldogs will travel for two consecutive weeks to Lodi to play Lodi and then Tokay in mid October. The final regular season game will be back home at the end of the month as Tracy will host West.
