TRACY – Just like in 2013, Saturday's 41st annual Lions Club All-Star Football Game at Tracy High's Wayne Schneider Stadium came down to a field-goal attempt on the last play. Unlike 2013, the defense was able to defend the attempt and the South did not get the win this time as the kick was blocked ending the game in a 21-21 tie, running the series record to 24-15-2 in favor of the North.
