The Ceres Seahawks pee-wee youth football squad exhibited a great deal of sportsmanship during its 36-8 win over the Ceres Cowboys in the Ceres City Championship showdown on Saturday at Bulldog Stadium.

"I don't like showboating," Seahawks head coach Randy Scacutto said. "We get excited after the game as a team."

The Seahawks won the Cen-Cal AFC regular-season title en route to posting a 13-1 overall record.

The Cowboys, members of the Delta Youth Football League, qualified for the playoffs and finished 6-5.

"Our goal was to win the Super Bowl," Scacutto said. "We fell short. But most teams would be happy to go 13-1. We had a good season. All of the kids developed. I hope all of them come back."

The Seahawks scored four times on offense and once on defense while racing out to a 36-0 lead in the opening half. The Cowboys committed three turnovers.

Miguel Jimenez delivered a 24-yard TD strike to Jake Partida in the first quarter.

Caleb Aungst returned an interception 46 yards for a score.

Partida had a 10-yard rushing touchdown in the second quarter.

Jordan Rice (22 yards) and Angel Porras (1 yard) both tallied one TD on the ground.

Porras made three of five 2-point kicks.

"We didn't punt once in the first half," Scacutto said. "We scored on every possession. We have a lot of playmakers. We don't count on just one person. That's what made us unstoppable."

Orlando Leon Jr. accounted for the Cowboys' lone touchdown, a 1-yard QB keeper, in the final period. He also converted the 2-point kick.

"We couldn't do much," Cowboys head coach Orlando Leon said. "We just came out flat. We didn't play like ourselves. That's one of the best teams we've faced all year."

The Seahawks improved their all-time record versus the Cowboys to 3-0. The Seahawks won the previous two meetings by shutout.

"It's always nice to take the trophy back home and keep it on our side," Scacutto said. "We had a good time."
