With three minutes before halftime this game was tied at seven.  In many ways, Tracy should have been ahead in the first half but came out of the gate a little too amped up which may have generated some key errors that allowed St. Mary's to keep their offense on the field a significant amount of the first half.  The Rams produced two quick scores in the final 3 minutes of the half which really put the pressure on the Bulldogs.  Down by 14 in the locker room, Tracy still knew they had a chance as they felt they had been very close to possibly having a lead had it not been for the miscues. 

The optimism the Dogs had coming back to the field in the 2nd half would be erased as the game wore on and the Rams continued to pull further ahead and take first place with them as they celebrated the end of their Homecoming.

UPON FURTHER REVIEW......TRACY SOPHOMORES COULD HAVE TIED

Coach Jay Fishburn had an odd grin on his face several minutes after he had decompressed from a heartbreaking 22-21 loss at St. Mary's.  "I just saw the video of our extra point late in the game and it was good," said Fishburn.  He was referring to an extra point that just moments before had been ruled no good preserving a 1 point lead for the Rams late in the game.  Despite that bad fortune, the Bulldogs played St. Mary's very tough and fought back to almost tie the game .

PICTURES OF THE WEEK SPECIAL HOMECOMING EDITION

The diverse activities of Tracy High Homecoming offer some excellent photo opportunities and a rich treasure trove in which to display some "Pictures of the Week."   There are many, many more photos that could not be displayed on this page but are available for your viewing (or purchase) pleasure in the Homecoming and 2017 Bulldog Football folder at stujosseyphotography.com

Here is my first one of a student doing a flip during the Night Rally on Wednesday.

"Sorry Kids, Out of Candy"
Carlos Vasquez tells a disappointed crowd that he is out of candy as his vehicle nears the end of the parade route.

Ally Vierra is in the right position with the camera to capture this action shot of Anthony Buckhanan receiving a Logan Fife pass that was on target.   Brutus oversees the action from his vantage point in the background.

9 Times To Strike Up the Band and Cheer
Ally Vierra snapped this photo of the Dogpound cheering on their team.  It was a 9 touchdown night that kept the band and the Dogpound very busy.

Ally Vierra got another Picture of the Week as she captures two students busy running the flags down the track.  It was a busy 9 touchdown night for the Bulldogs that required anyone celebrating a touchdown to be in good shape.

Nick Bursts Through The Homecoming Sign En Route to a Collison With Jaylan
I displayed this picture on Friday night, but wanted to make reference to it again in my Pic of the Week segment.  What happens a split second after this picture was taken was documented in video footage as Nick and Jaylan collide in a not so graceful move.  It will be seen during the end of the year "season in review" movie when the Game 7 highlights appear.

Alejandro Delatorre Breaks Free
This is one of my favorite action shots I've taken this year and worthy of a Picture of the Week.

Senior Ally Vierra snapped this crystal clear and colorful photo of a Tracy High band member.  Downsizing and placing these images on the web do not do justice to the clarity of some of the photographs like this that I get to see in full resolution.  Ally has shown in just a few weeks of sideline work to be a very talented photographer.  I hope she pursues photojournalism after High School.

Brandin Farmer Provides a Funny Response To Ally Vierra's Camera Lens
Ally Vierra captures a relaxed Brandin Farmer postgame as he listens to the postgame comments.   It's nice having a student assistant snap some of these candid shots because they get reactions that are not possible for me to draw out of the students.

Fall Colors On Display During the Homecoming Parade
I have a routine on the parades where I first shoot the students coming North on Central at the start of the parade and then I move to this location which has a really nice background of the trees that line 10th Street.  The October Fall colors are in full display as the parade hits the large crowds assembled downtown.
