The Vista Jr. Eagles suffered their second loss of the season. A valiant effort was put forth by the Eagles’ defense. Hard-nosed play by Gavin Green, Jadon Wallen, Jakob Hollingshaus, Regan Lynch, Justin Belmonti and Drew Ewey kept the Wildcat’s scoring to a minimum. Strong effort on offense by Griffin Richards, Evan Hromanik, Noah Case, Ethan Rai, Syris Boyd, Jonathan Normington and Gabriel Ramirez.  After a tough battle marked by big gains and tough losses, the Jr. Eagles did their best and showed a great amount of character and professionalism.

Homer fumble recovery, Jenner found Parker Clayton for a 30-yard
touchdown catch. In the second half, Jenner found Dominic Baciocco for a 20-yard touchdown grab set up by a Grant Patterson interception. Tanglao
finished up with a late 15-yard scoring run. Jonathan Rittenhouse added

It was a tough loss for the Eagles. Brent Schaeffer orchestrated three drives that fell just short at the goal line. Adam King kicked the first field goal of the season, accounting for the only Eagles’ score. The big story was in fumble recoveries by Thomas Reinking and Austin Thomson. David Hull and Adam McMahon got tough yards on blocking by Daniel Baldini. Matt Karp and Spencer Sgrignoli chased down runners and saved scores. A big shout out goes to the Jr. Eagles Cheerleaders who have done a great job keeping up team and fan spirit all season.

Jr. Bulldogs
Mighty Mites
Jr. Bulldogs 32, Natomas 0

The Jr. Bulldogs celebrated the final home game of the season by letting the future Bulldog stars lead the way to a 32-0 victory over the Natomas Nighthawks. Carter Martinelli, Mason Norberg, Cavin McCord, Aiden Single, Ronnie Henslee, Matt Carte, Connor Campbell, Landon Jorge, Logan Hutton, Austin Mallett, Jaydon Jackson, Bobby McCann and Isaiah Langham all played major roles in helping the Bulldogs win. Kyle Campbell, Tryston Jennings, McKay Diehl, Justin Hanzelka and Martinelli all had their first touchdown runs of the season and Jacob Viega and Evan Traynelis Howell both ran in conversions. On defense Martinelli and Jorge both had interceptions, while Parker Russell, Carson Jorge and Henslee all had sacks. Lincoln Algier, Tony Couch and Oshay Gardner played great games on both sides of the ball contributing to this total team victory.

Jr. Peewees
Jr. Bulldogs 8, Natomas 0

The Jr. Peewees improved to 8-0 with fittingly an 8-0 victory over a very tough, athletic Natomas Jr. Nighthawk’s team. The Nighthawk’s first offensive series ended with an interception by CJ Hutton and Folsom looked to be on it’s way. Folsom’s offense was able to move the ball well, yet had critical penalties and turnovers that stalled drives. After some tough runs by Luke Simmons, Jayden Robinson and Hutton, Cole Tremain was able to hook up with Drake DiGiorno for the game’s lone touchdown. DiGiorno also connected on his only extra point attempt to give the Bulldogs the lead that held up. The defense played well and stopped Natomas’ very potent attack. “Our team grew from this experience, as the defense knew we were only one big play away from this game having a very different outcome,” said Defensive Coordinator Sean Hutton. “I had many of these kids in different positions then they’re used to and they performed.” Also of note was a blistering hit by Chris Catalano on a Folsom onside kick that led to a recovery by Matthew Simon.

Jr. Bulldogs 23, Natomas 6

Defense put the stop on the hard-running Natomas team, only allowing a late fourth-quarter score. The defense was led by Tanner Sims, Max Simmons, Brooks Mitchell, Ben Voelz, Dylan Jorge, Jordan Thomas, Tyler Nycum, Hamilton Shvora and Robby Wong, as  Dominic Navarro and Dylan Davis recovered onside kicks.  On offense, Simmons hooked up with Davis and Adam Frick for touchdowns and Wong had a big catch for a 40-yard gain. Simmons also had a touchdown run and running back Navarro had some big gains. Peyton Van Ackeren was 2-for-2 kicking extra points. The offensive line did a really good job, led by great blocking by Brendan Kane, Jason Mann, Ryan Pascual, Tyler Clarke, Conner Ericksen, Victor Alonzo and Jayden Wakeland.
