Ceres High's varsity football team has doubled its win total from a year ago.
The Bulldogs improved to 4-4 overall and 2-1 in the Western Athletic Conference standings following their 48-28 walkover of Livingston Friday night in Ceres.
"Ceres High is so used to losing," Bulldogs third-year tight end Conner Johnson said. "We can possibly be WAC champions and go to playoffs. It's awesome being on a team like this."
The last-place Wolves dropped to 1-7 and 0-3.
Second-place Ceres High totaled seven touchdowns on offense against Livingston.
"We were precise with all of our plays," Johnson said. "We executed and finished. Everything clicked perfectly. That's why we were so successful."
Bulldog Chris Lubinsky turned in a near-flawless performance at quarterback.
Lubinsky racked up 306 yards and five touchdowns.
He's totaled 2,264 yards, 24 touchdowns and just four interceptions through the air this season.
Johnson caught eight passes for 118 yards and two touchdowns.
Marcellus Boykins hauled in six passes for 115 yards and a pair of TDs.
Austin Crain added 38 yards and one TD on three receptions.
Andrew Gibson rushed for 70 yards and two touchdowns on 15 carries.
Adrian Knights led the way on defense with seven tackles and one sack.
Aiden Moore had six tackles, one sack and one fumble recovery.
Zack Baker had seven tackles.
Zyier Harrison had four tackles and one interception.
Nick Jones had two tackles and two pass deflections.
The Bulldogs piled up 22 points in the second quarter en route to building a 35-14 lead in the opening half.
"The week leading up to the game, we were more focused," Johnson said.
The Bulldogs will secure their first playoff berth since 2004 if they win their final two games.
Ceres High will play at Pacheco (4-4, 2-1) this Friday at 7 p.m.
"This is by far the best season Ceres High has had in a long time," Johnson said. "It's awesome to be in the situation we're in. It's making us practice and play harder. We're having so much fun. Everyone is having a great time doing what they're doing. I'm just honored to be a part of this team."
