JV Seahawks compile 10-3 record
The Ceres Seahawks junior-varsity youth football team had its four-game winning streak snapped by the Turlock Vikings in the Cen-Cal AFC championship game on Oct. 12.

The Seahawks' struggles continued last week.

Ceres lost 22-6 to the Modesto Broncos in the Clyde Bowl on Sunday at Atwater High School.

"We're a better football team than that," Seahawks head coach Randy Flanagan said. "I'm still happy with their performance this year."

Ceres (10-3) won the AFC regular season crown and earned the top seed for the playoffs.

Modesto posted an 11-2 record.

The Seahawks edged the Broncos 8-0 on Oct. 29.

"Modesto was fired up today," Flanagan said.

Ceres all-purpose standout Jared Rice had 115 yards rushing and one touchdown against the Broncos last week.

The Seahawks fell behind 14-6 in the first half.

Ceres tallied a touchdown on its opening possession. Rice scored on a 12-yard sweep to the right.

"We couldn't get anything going offensively," Flanagan said. "We had no rhythm. We picked the wrong time to go flat. I don't know how to explain it."

The Seahawks and Ceres Cowboys will compete for the Ceres City Championship this Saturday at Bulldog Stadium.

"They'll have to play a good game to beat us," Flanagan said. "We'll be ready."
