Dawgs best Huskies in scrimmage
If it were up to Hadon Lopez, he would have played every single down during the Ceres High varsity football team's seven-on-seven passing league scrimmage last week.

"I'm a competitive person," said Lopez, a standout middle linebacker and fullback.

Hadon made his presence felt just about every time he stepped on the field in the Bulldogs' 24-12 win over visiting Hughson on Tuesday, July 1. He totaled seven catches, two touchdowns and one interception.

The Bulldogs reeled off 12 straight points following his pick.

John Clark's TD strike to Lopez broke a 6-6 tie.

Josh Edwards, Ceres High's other signal caller, connected with Nick Sandoval to make it an 18-6 game. The score came after the Bulldogs' defense shut down the Huskies.

"We started off a little slow, but we ended up coming back," Hadon said. "We just need to keep our intensity up."

After Hughson cut the deficit to six, Clark engineered a seven-play drive to seal the victory. He completed 7 of 10 passes, including three to Lopez and Marcus Hilgen, and one to Martino Bertolotti. Hadon accounted for the TD.

Clark finished the day 23-for-37 with two touchdowns.

Edwards completed 9 of 19 passes with a pair of scores.

Hilgen, Sandoval, Bertolotti, Brandon Avila, Justin Canatsy, Rajdeep Singh, Brandon Jolley, Devaun McGregor and Michael Valenzuela contributed on offense as well.

Hilgen led the way with seven catches and one score.

Sandoval tallied three catches and a TD.

Avila and Canatsy both had three receptions.

Singh, Bertolotti, Jolley and McGregor grabbed two passes each.

Valenzuela hauled in one pass.

"I think we did good overall as a team," Lopez said. "But we can only get better."
