Ceres High School’s frosh-soph football team suffered its fourth consecutive loss this past week.

The Bulldogs were beaten, 28-0, by the Beyer Patriots in Western Athletic Conference play on Friday at CHS.

Ceres High opened the 2018 season with a 17-0 win over crosstown-rival Central Valley on Aug 16. 

“We’ve been plagued with injuries since the fourth quarter of Week One,” head coach Darrell Long said. “We’ve been fortunate to have players step up, but it seems like we lose or are required to roll with backups who’ve suddenly been thrust into first-team reps.”

The Bulldogs dropped to 1-4 overall and 0-2 in the Western Athletic Conference standings.

“Even though we’ve not been successful in the win column, our players continue to play with heart and determination,” Long said. “We’re committed to getting better the remaining five games.”
