Photos: Central Catholic holds off Bullard to win CIF NorCal 2-AA Regional championship

MODESTO, Calif. – It was the Aiden Taylor Show for Central Catholic on Friday night.

Playing in a dense Tule fog, the Raiders received four rushing touchdowns from Taylor during a 44-41 hard-earned victory over Bullard in the CIF NorCal 2-AA Regional championship game.

Taylor had three touchdowns in the first half and he scored his fourth on a 5-yard run in the fourth quarter. Teammate Julian Lopez supplied two rushing touchdowns of his own.

Central Catholic (13-1) will face Mater Dei Catholic in the 2-AA state championship game on Dec. 10 at Saddleback College. The Raiders won four consecutive state titles from 2012-2015.

Bullard quarterback Roland Russo threw five touchdown passes including two each to receivers Jayden Davis and Wendell Ware.

Here are photos from the game:
