Ceres High's football program won four of six games on its way to a second-place finish in the Stockton Lightning Tournament.

"It was a good way to end our passing contacts this summer," head coach Brett Johnson said. "We're really thrilled. The kids showed a lot of improvement."

Ceres High lost 4-3 in double overtime to Sheldon in the championship game on Saturday, July 11 at Stockton Arena.

"The kids were bummed," Johnson said. "We didn't bring home the trophy but we brought home confidence."

The Bulldogs won their first two games on Saturday. Ceres High edged Sheldon 3-2 in overtime and Bear Creek 1-0 in regulation.

The Bulldogs compiled a 2-1 record on Friday. Ceres High beat Sheldon (3-2) and Stagg (3-0). Stagg won the first meeting by a score of 3-2.

Quarterback Josh Edwards, and receivers Justin Canatsy, Vince Tomao and Nick Sandoval all had standout performances.

Nick hauled in the winning touchdown on the last play of the game against Sheldon on Friday.

"He (Sandoval) showed us he can catch and he's fast," Johnson said.

Ceres High players and coaches watched the Stockton Lightning pound the Central Valley Coyotes 57-31 in Arena Football League 2 action Saturday night.

"It was a fun bonding experience," Johnson said. "The kids had a great time."
