Head coach Joe Borba watched game film twice to make sure he didn't make a mistake while tabulating statistics.

The Ceres Seahawks varsity youth football team rolled up 485 yards of total offense in a 64-16 romp of the Ceres Cowboys on Saturday at Bulldog Stadium.

"That's the second most points we've scored at the varsity level," Borba said. "Whatever we ran worked. We did everything we wanted to do on both sides of the ball."

The Seahawks compiled an 8-6 record and upset the top-seeded Merced Cougars on their way to advancing to the Cen-Cal AFC title game.

The Cowboys finished 3-8 and failed to qualify for the DYFL Playoffs.

The Seahawks finally beat the Cowboys, ending a three-game losing streak.

The Seahawks finally beat the Cowboys, ending a three-game skid.

The Seahawks built a comfortable 34-0 lead in the opening half of last week's meeting.

Solorzano and Gutierrez both tallied two rushing touchdowns.

Serrano had a defensive TD.

"I was surprised with how many points we were able to put up," Borba said. "I expected it to be a lot closer. Our offensive line was working hard. Our defensive line was causing problems all game. It's great to finish the season with a win against the Cowboys. They're always going to remember this game."
