Jr. Bulldogs Mighty Mites Folsom 26, Oak Ridge 25 The Mighty Mites avenged last week’s double overtime loss to Oak Ridge with a double overtime win over their own. After giving up an early TD to the Trojans, Jacob Huntington scampered 45 yards for a tying TD. Zack Cottrell added a 64-yard TD run, putting the Bulldogs up 12-6. The Trojans put together a late TD drive to tie the game and send it to overtime. Cottrell ran in a fourth-and-three TD in the first overtime and Cheyne Gitsham added the extra point. In the second overtime, Cottrell ran in another score on a fourth-and-eight play and then rushed in the ensuing extra point. The Trojans then scored but on the extra point attempt Jaxson Hansen delivered a thunderous hit in the Trojan backfield to seal the victory and send the defending Mighty Mite champions back to the championship game. Jr. Peewees Folsom 39, Rocklin 0 The Jr. Bulldogs improved to 9-0 with a thrashing of the Rocklin Jr. Thunder. Bryan Fatooh, CJ Hutton, Dylan Jorge each had touchdowns, while Tanner Sims had two. The offense racked up 348 total yards. Dylan Davis had several catches and many for first downs. Davis and Sims had fumble recoveries, Ben Voelz forced a fumble and Max Simmons had an interception. It was the Bulldogs’ sixth shutout of the season. “We are peaking at the right time of the season and our team appears to be destined for greatness,” said Coach Watson. “We have one more to take care of and we will leave everything on the field.” The Folsom Jr. Bulldogs travel to Cosumnes Oaks High School this week to face the Sacramento Jr. Falcons for the Division 1 championship. Peewee Folsom 7, Oak Ridge 6 The Peewees avenged last week’s loss with a last-minute win. After an early fourth-quarter touchdown by Oak Ridge, the Bulldogs drove 58 yards and Logan Bingham scored on a seven-yard touchdown run and Davin Simmons added the winning extra point, which put the Bulldogs in Saturday’s championship game. Jeffrey Skyrud, Sean Campeau, Noah Lunday, Connor O’Brien, Dylan Deihl and Mark Weldy led the defense, while Justin Viega had a sack and a blocked punt. Jr. Midgets Woodcreek 16, Folsom 14 The Jr. Midgets fought hard in a battle that lasted until the final seconds of the fourth quarter. On offense, touchdowns from Joe Curry and Drake Stallworth put points on the board and the defense came up with several big stops to keep the team in the game. Ultimately, the team was never able to find the rhythm they had all season. It was a tough end to a great season. The boys played hard all year and had a remarkable season. Hold your heads up high, Jr. Midgets; you represented the Jr. Bulldogs well this year. Midgets Rocklin 28, Folsom 8 The Bulldogs lit up the scoreboard first when Connor Clancy found Matt Torres for a touchdown late in the first quarter. Rocklin answered back with two second-quarter touchdowns to lead 14-8 at halftime. Rocklin scored two more touchdowns in the second half. “I’m proud of this team. We had a season full of injuries and ran a completely new offense. This group of guys played hard all season and I can’t wait to watch them next year at Folsom High.” Folsom's Mighty Mites play at 10 a.m., the Jr. Peewees play at noon, while the Peewees play at 2 p.m. Jr. Eagles headed to Shrine Bowl Five Vista Jr. Eagles Midgets have been selected to compete in this year’s Sacramento Youth Football League’s Shrine Bowl, which will be held on November 19 at American River College. Ney Vencer, Blake Martin, Wade Thomson, Nick Williams and Trent Jas were selected to play in the game. All of these boys have had fantastic seasons on and off the field and deserve the community’s support in raising money for the Shiners Hospital for Children. -by Kelley Butcher
