STOCKTON — For the second time this season, the Tokay High football team had an early lead on an opponent. But the McNair High squad used a trick play and its passing game to kick-start a 48-14 win over the Tigers at the Eagles’ field on Friday. Tokay (0-5) concluded its preseason schedule, and opens Tri-City Athletic League action against Tracy at the Grape Bowl on Friday, Sept. 28. On its first offensive possession in the first quarter after receiving the opening kickoff, Tokay marched down the field from its own 35-yard line that started when sophomore quarterback Jacob Varney threw to fullback Nathan Branco of 15 yards for a first down at the 50.

(Bea Ahbeck/News-Sentinel) While the Tokay football team is in the midst of a four-game losing streak to open its season, there was reason for optimism through three quarters Friday night. Then came a catastrophic fourth quarter. Tokay fumbled and allowed a recovery and long run for a touchdown, could not recover a squib kick on the ensuing kickoff and never threatened Chavez again, falling 50-13 at the Grape Bowl. Chavez outscored Tokay 24-0 in the fourth, nullifying a second quarter surge for the Tigers (the Titans led 18-13 at half) and

Chavez is one of those opponents that is making a return trip to the Grape Bowl. Tokay will be playing its third home game in four weeks, as today’s game is scheduled for a 7:15 p.m. kickoff. The Tigers have added another quarterback to their roster. Sophomore Jacob Varney (5-foot-11 and 172 pounds) was moved up from the junior varsity team. He took most of the snaps in the Tigers’ 61-14 loss to Stagg on Aug. 30. Varney played for senior quarterback Chase Howell, who sprained his right ankle when Tokay (0

Stagg senior quarterback Cameron Deville completed 16 of 25 passes for 296 yards and five touchdowns and rushed for another as the Delta Kings raced away for a 61-14 non-league victory over the Tokay Tigers Friday night at Stagg High School. Deville, who’s thrown four touchdown passes in each of his first two games, has 13 throwing scores and 869 yards passing for Stagg (2-1), which shrugged off a sluggish start.
