Ceres High School's junior-varsity girls soccer team edged Central Valley 4-3 last month.

The Bulldogs won the crosstown finale in dominant fashion, 4-0, on May 4.

"It feels good winning because I know a lot of their girls," said Cecilia Carretero, Ceres High's top offensive player."

Carretero, Susana Larranaga, Jacqueline Gonzales and Abigail Schmiat all scored goals for host Ceres High, which finished in third place in the Western Athletic Conference standings (6-2-4).

Bulldog goalkeeper Dayana Delgado made two saves.

Hawk backup goalie Erykah Magana tallied 14 saves.

Ceres High outscored Central Valley 2-0 in the opening half.

The Bulldogs trailed 3-2 at halftime during the first meeting.

"We played harder this time because it's our last game," Carretero said.

Fifth-place Central Valley (3-8-1) played shorthanded.

Forward Michelle Hernandez (ankle), defender Taralynn Smith (hand) and goalkeeper Alex Covarrubias (ankle) were sidelined with injuries.

Forward Maria Jimenez did not compete because she was sick.

"It's disappointing," Hawks head coach Chris Meshach said. "We should have done better. I just think the kids were tired of playing. The drive wasn't there."

Ceres High had an unbeaten record through its first nine league games. The Bulldogs collected five wins and four ties.

"We had a good season," said Carretero, a second-year standout. "We had more experience this year."
