Folsom Vista Jr. Peewees 8, Davis 6 The Jr. Peewees won the first championship in Folsom Vista Eagle history in dramatic fashion. The Eagles marched down the field on their first possession, only to get stopped at the 1-yard line on four straight plays. Davis took over and ran a 99-yard touchdown on their first offensive play to give them an early 6-0 lead. Late in the fourth quarter, the Eagles got the ball back with 4:28 to play. Faced with a third and 24 from their own 15-yard-line, Christian Fiori took a reverse handoff from running back Will Carrey and scampered for 22 yards to bring up a crucial fourth-and-two. The Eagles called on their workhorse, Stephen Ewey, who picked up five yards to give the Eagles a first down. Ewey and Carrey rushed the ball down to the Davis eight-yard line and on third-and-goal with 52 seconds to go, Ewey took the handoff from quarterback Mitchell Northcutt and ran in for the game-tying score behind the impressive blocking of Preston Shephard, Fiori, Carrey, Cheyne Gitsham, Jackson McFarland, Levi Burnett, Cristofer Gore (Gore also intercepted a pass), Cole Eirstedt and Saxton Brown. Ewey then calmly kicked the PAT to give the Eagles their first lead against Davis. With 47.9 seconds on the game clock, Ewey kicked an onside kick, which was recovered by Carrey, to seal the first championship in Eagle history.
