The 49ers started Week 7 at 8 a.m. Saturday, hosting the Los Banos Wildcats.  

Pee Wee Niners started the day with a victory over the Wildcats 27-6, but the Wildcats JV was able to get revenge and outscore the JV Niners 14-6.  Varsity got things back on track, handing the Wildcats a loss of 44- 22. 

Both Turlock Rookie teams took the field at 2 p.m. and battled their opponents. The four teams split the field at the 50 yard line, allowing two separate games to take place simultaneously. Although they don’t keep score, it was exciting to see both teams out there working hard on their game.

The Vikings took over Joe Debely Field later in the day, dominating the Ceres Seahawks with wins at all levels.  Pee Wee squashed the Seahawks 35-6; and JV didn’t let up with a victory of 16-0.  Varsity continued the winning streak and demolished the Seahawks 32-0.

Saturday's feature game was a battle of undefeated Pee Wee powerhouses. The 6-0 Ceres Seahawks came into Turlock looking to knock off last season's undefeated Super Bowl champion Pee Wee Vikings, who at 6-0 were riding a Cen-Cal Junior Football league best 19-game winning streak.

The Vikings started fast by recovering their own onside kick and promptly marching the ball 48 yards in six plays with Dreyven Dickie scoring on a 5 yard burst up the middle. A blocked PAT made the score 6-0 Vikings. Ceres would answer right back with a 10-play 50 yard drive that included several nice pass completions to tie the score 6-6 after another failed pat attempt.

However, the Vikings, who average a Pee Wee best 48.8 points per game, would not be outdone. Seth Miguel struck back on the very first play from scrimmage taking the ball 55 yards to the end zone on a QB keeper. Steve Silva's PAT kick made the score 14-6 Vikings. From there it was the Vikings defense that put on a highlight film-worthy performance. Outstanding performances by DEs Miguel Pena and Jayden Jackson contained the Seahawk offense to their own backfield for much of the game.

The Vikings also scored on their next offensive possession when Dickie took a fake punt 57 yards and Silva's PAT made the score 22-6. The Vikings blew the game open when Miguel hooked up with Jackson on a 48-yard streak to make the score 28-6 with 40 seconds remaining in the first half.

In the second half, the Vikings went into the clock chewing ground pounding game they are known for and added an additional score by Cooper Carr on a 2-yard run, who also completed a PAT pass to Miguel Pena to make the final score 35-6 Vikings.


Week 8 the Vikings and Niners will both be home, however, the Vikings will get things going by hosting the Central Valley 49ers with game times at 8 a.m. for Pee Wee, 10 a.m. for JV and 12 p.m. for Varsity.  Both Rookie teams will play again at 2 p.m..  The Niners will take the field hosting the Atwater Falcons with Pee Wee starting at 3:30 p.m., JV at 5:30 p.m. and Varsity at 7:30 p.m.
