Jr. Peewee Vista 16, Del Campo 6 Stephen Ewey and Mitchell Northcutt each rushed for touchdowns in leading the Eagles to a hard fought playoff victory. Ewey also kicked two crucial extra points. The Eagle defense was stout again, a unit that has only allowed one touchdown in their last three games. The Eagles look to avenge their only loss this season in Saturday’s championship game against the Davis Blue Devils. Game time is 10 a.m. at Foothill High School. Midget Davis 28, Vista 18 On the first play of the game Ryan Wert ran for 60 yards on a quarterback keeper up the middle. This set up Bradley Rittenhouse for an eight-yard touchdown run. Michael McMahon had a great day running with a 40-yard run and scored a touchdown as well. Tyler Steinlein had two great catches, one he dove for and caught in the end zone for a touchdown thrown by Wert. Daniel Morgan had a strong day on offense and defense; he made a leaping catch for 20 yards and recovered an onside kick. Eric Friessen had a great day on defense making some great tackles and an interception in the third quarter. He also knocked down the ball on a fourth down. Gary Heal and Brandon Mulks both sacked the quarterback. Folsom Jr. Bulldogs Mighty Mites 14, Rocklin 6 The Folsom Jr. Bulldog Mighty Mites advanced to Saturday’s championship game against Lincoln. The Jr. Bulldogs struck first with a touchdown run from CJ Hutton. Rocklin then scored and the game was tied at six at the half. In overtime, it was Hutton again breaking several tackles for the score and a 12-6 lead. Then on a quarterback bootleg Brady Huddlestun connected with Hutton for a 2-point conversion making the score 14-6. Jr. Peewees 20, Rocklin 0 The Jr. Bulldogs controlled the game with a stifling defense led by Logan Bingham, Sean Campeau, Noah Lunday, Jacob Cruz, Davin Simmons and Liam Eviston, that did not give up a first down until late in the fourth quarter. Dylan Jorge, Mark Weldy and Jack Crandall scored touchdowns for Folsom, while Kaden Richardson, Cole Saxen, Garrett McClure, Tyler Nycum, Luke Wolger and Tyler Mackey provided great blocking. Bingham and Simmons ended Rocklin’s next two possessions with interceptions. Folsom plays Whitney Saturday for the championship. Midgets 19, Granite Bay 8 Wayde Luddy had a sack, interception and three tackles to lead the Folsom defense while other standouts included Bryan Weldy, Bailey Laologee, Tyler Crandall, Lucas Hendricks, Matt Jimison and Cole Thompson. Offensively, the line of Cody Creason, Austin Rothrock, Kyle Markus, Sam Whitney, Nick Brown, and Tristan Botts supported big plays by quarterback Josiah Degaura. The Peewee’s won 36-14 over Foothill Jr. Mustangs and will also play in Saturday’s championship game.
