Ceres High's junior-varsity football team erased a two-touchdown deficit on its way to edging host Hughson 15-14 in non-conference play on Friday.

"I'm very proud of the way the guys battled back," head coach Clinton Goblirsch said.

The Bulldogs improved to 2-1 on the year.

Freshman quarterback Dalton Durossette completed 19 of 32 passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns.

Dale Sizemore caught 10 passes for 91 yards and one TD.

Mateo Scalise totaled 29 yards and one score on four receptions.

Brock DeWitt added 13 yards on two catches. He starred on defense with two interceptions.

Andrew Alcala led Ceres High's rushing attack with 20 yards on seven carries.

The Bulldogs trailed 14-7 at halftime.

Scalise hauled in a 5-yard TD pass from Durossette late in the second quarter.

Ceres High allowed two touchdowns in the first quarter.

The Bulldogs shut out the Huskies 8-0 during the second half.

Durossette tossed a 2-yard TD pass to Sizemore with 30 seconds left in regulation. "Our defense played well limiting their rushing and passing attacks all game," Goblirsch said. "Offensively, we were able to move the ball, but killed ourselves with our own mistakes, missed assignments, and turnovers. We will have to play better to continue having success."
