Ceres High School's varsity football team allowed 43.3 points per game during the 2015 season.

The Bulldogs' defensive unit showed marked improvement at the Ceres-Central Valley Jamboree six-team scrimmage on Saturday at Ceres High.

Ceres High allowed just four touchdowns.

"We had success," Bulldogs head coach Bret Durossette said. "We were flying around. I was impressed."

Ceres High scrimmaged against Enochs, West and Central Valley.

Marcellus Boykins, Caden Johnson, Zyier Harrison and junior Andrew Gibson scored touchdowns against Enochs.

"Our offense was clicking," Bulldogs quarterback Chris Lubinsky said. "Our defense was making plays. It was a great first scrimmage."

Added Durossette: "We did better than what most people anticipated us to do. We scrimmaged against teams that are comparable to us."

The Bulldogs outscored Enochs and West by identical scores of 4-1.

Ceres High lost 3-1 to crosstown-rival Central Valley.

"We had some difficulties at times," Durossette said.

Ceres High will open the 2016 season at home against Weston Ranch on Friday.

Kickoff slated for 7 p.m.
