Ceres High's varsity girls soccer team won its first three games of the 2017 season.

The Bulldogs collected two ties and two losses while finishing in third place in Group A at the Pitman Tournament this past week at the Turlock Sports Regional Complex.

"We played in a pretty tough bracket," head coach Miguel Saldate said. "I'm happy with how everything turned out. Our goal was to see what we needed to work on. It was a tournament to learn."

Ceres High closed out the tourney with a 1-1 tie with Linden Saturday afternoon.

Miranda Wilds accounted for the Bulldogs' lone goal.

Aaliyah Ruiz picked up the assist.

Goalkeeper Angelmarie Coral made one save.

Ceres High lost 2-1 to Woodland Saturday morning.

Ceres High and Turlock battled to a 1-1 tie Friday morning.

Trevino scored an unassisted goal.

Gudino had four saves.

"The difference was one goal (in each of our losses)," Saldate said. "We were very competitive."

Ceres High (3-2-2) will wrap up its non-conference schedule with a home game against Gregori today at 5:30 p.m.

The Bulldogs collected victories against LeGrand, Hilmar and Hughson.

Ceres High won the three games by a combined score of 18-3.
