Ceres High’s youth-laden boys soccer team closed out the 2023-24 season earlier this month.

The Bulldogs lost 3-2 to the Grace Davis Spartans on Senior Day at Ceres River Bluff Regional Park on Feb. 5.

“It was a good game,” said head coach Gilbert Zamora Jr. “We had our chances just like they did. Offensively, we’ve been struggling. It’s something we have to improve on.”

Ceres High amassed a 7-11-2 overall record and finished in sixth place in the WAC standings with a 5-8-1 mark.

The Bulldogs dropped out of playoff contention after losing four straight games during the second half of the conference season.

“Our goal was to make playoffs,” Zamora said. “We had our chances to win games. We didn’t.”

Ceres High lost six games by one goal this year.

“We have a young team. We’re developing. Next year, we’ll be better. We’ll be a little older and more experienced.”

Luis Flores and Enrique Murillo both scored one goal against Grace Davis.

The Bulldogs compiled a 1-1 record versus the Spartans this season.

Ceres High defeated Grace Davis 3-1 on Jan. 17 in Modesto.

Flores, Alexander Lopez, Christopher Vega and Jesus Moreno suited up for the Bulldogs for the final time last week.

The four seniors were recognized before the Ceres High-Grace Davis game.

Flores and Lopez both filled key roles as team captains.

“Our seniors were really positive. They pushed the younger players to practice hard.”

Ceres High will return a host of talent from this year’s team next winter.

“I’m excited. We’re going to have a solid team. There will be no excuses. We got to be ready no matter what.”
