The Ceres Seahawks junior-varsity youth football team wrapped up the Cen-Cal regular season with a 52-13 blowout of the Livingston Wolves on Saturday at Livingston High School.

"Everyone had a good time," Ceres head coach Randy Flanagan said. "We scrimmaged them at the beginning of the year. They weren't bad. We got better."

The Seahawks improved to 5-5 on the year and 3-3 in the Cen-Cal AFC standings.

"We got a good football team," Flanagan said. "We can beat anybody."

Ceres quarterback Orlando Leon, who missed five games earlier this season with a broken nose, threw for 157 yards and four touchdowns. Leon also had a 1-yard rushing TD.

"He's a tough kid," Flanagan said. "He throws the ball well. He's going to be a good one at the high-school level."

Bryce Gouker, Dawaiian McNeely and Andrew Alcala all scored two touchdowns.
Gouker hauled in TD passes of 55 and 12 yards from Leon.

McNeely caught a 35-yard touchdown pass and rumbled 40 yards for a score.

Alcala had a 60-yard TD catch and 45-yard rushing score.

Ryan Palacek chipped in with one rushing TD (4 yards).

The Seahawks imposed their will in the first quarter, racing out to a 26-0 lead.

Fourth-seeded Ceres will face top-seeded Buhach Colony in the opening round of the Cen-Cal playoffs this Saturday at Oakdale High School. Kickoff slated for 5 p.m.

The Seahawks lost 20-0 to the Thunder earlier this year. "Our defense was on the field most of the game," Flanagan said. "We just couldn't score points."
