The Jr. Bulldogs finished the regular season with a 9-0 record.  Folsom's defense was again stellar in their fifth shut out of the year. The Bulldogs had some great offensive performances as well. Cole Tremain had another big day, leading the Bulldogs with two scores, the first of which was a deep ball from QB Brady Huddlestun, who returned from injury and played fantastic. Huddlestun also connected with Jake Huntington and Cy Watson on deep passes. Watson also had a rushing TD. One of the more exciting plays was a 50-yard punt return by CJ Hutton, which featured several devastating blocks thrown by Drake DiGiornio, Jayden Meneghetti and Huddlestun as Hutton weaved his way for a score. "This team understands their success is due to selfless play and complete team effort. “We are so proud of these young men and look forward to a successful postseason," said Coach Watson.

The battle royale between the Vista Jr. Eagles and the Folsom Bulldogs began with both teams pressing their attack and standing tough with their defense.  Big hits by Jadon Wallen, Gavin Green and Michael Dias stopped the Bulldogs in their tracks.  After a fumble recovery, the Jr. Eagles began to gain steam but were unable to capitalize.  Jakob Hollingshaus got a workout as quarterback with Jadon Wallen putting forth a strong effort in the backfield.  Noah Case and Justin Belmonti did a great job holding the line.  Excellent sportsmanship and character was displayed by all of the players and coaches.

The Jr. Bulldogs ended the Jr. Eagles’ season with the win. The Eagles tied the game early when Matthew Jenner found Bryan Tanglao on a 40-yard touchdown play. Tanglao had a strong running day throughout the contest, but the Eagles could not punch the ball back into the end zone. On defense the Eagles were led by the efforts of Matthew Koett, Jackson McFarland, Nolan Hawkins and Brendan Boone. Grant Patterson and Dominic Baciocco had interceptions for the Eagles.

The Eagles’ ball control offense, led by running backs Dominic Norris and Grant Jas, was able to chew clock and control possession for much of the first half. In the second quarter, QB Ryan Hicks was able to find Brian McPeak down the sideline for a 35-yard TD pass. The Bulldogs were able to close the gap with a game tying (8-8) TD pass as the clock expired for the first half. The second half was marked by two long TD runs by the Bulldogs that provided the difference in the game.
