Folsom Jr. Bulldogs Jr. Peewees Folsom 50, Franklin 12 On the Jr. Wildcats first play of the game, Mark Weldy stripped the ball and Noah Lunday recovered it in the end zone to put the Jr. Bulldogs up 8-0. After a Franklin score, the teams exchanged touchdowns again, Folsom’s coming on a 17-yard run by Davin Simmons and Folsom led 14-12 after one quarter. Folsom got another big 41-yard run from Weldy to set up a five-yard TD run by Logan Bingham, the star of the defense this week. From there the Jr. Bulldogs defense, led by Dylan Jorge and Liam Eviston, shut down the Jr. Wildcats. Folsom dominated the rest of the game, receiving touchdown runs from Simmons and Gavin Davis Smith and a pair of touchdown passes from Jack Crandall to Jacob Cruz and Michael McJimsey. The offensive line of Tyler Nycum, Kaden Richardson, Tyler Mackey, Lunday, Garrett McClure and Connor Saxen created huge holes all day long. Simmons converted four PAT kicks. The Jr. Bulldogs will try to avenge their only loss of the season with a rematch versus the Rocklin Jr. Thunder this Saturday in the second round of the playoffs. Vista Jr. Eagles Jr. Peewee Vista 32, Foothill 0 The Eagles got their second shutout in as many weeks. Christian Fiori and Preston Shephard scored their first touchdowns of their career. Mitchell Northcutt, Stephen Ewey and Cheyne Gitsham found the end zone as well. Will Carrey, Saxton Brown, Jackson Mcfarland, Levi Burnett, and Gitsham led the Eagle defense. The Eagles are flying high as they head into the playoffs next week. Peewee Vista 32, Foothill 13 The Peewees attacked early in the air with a 40- and 50-yard touchdown passes from quarterback Ryan Hicks to Jason Carrey. Hicks also had an early touchdown run and two extra-point runs for scores. Then the ground attack took over with running backs Tanner Sims leading the way with 30- and 50-yard touchdown runs. Owen Gitsham and Dominick Norris provided yardage for the offense. Daniel Dias had an on-side kick recovery. Tommy Nunez, Andrew Cokley, Andrew Guillen, and Anthony Zewe provided great blocking on the offensive line. The defense made some big stops against the Jr. Mustangs heavy running game led by Nathan Trujillo, Cokley, Dominck Norris, Hicks, Joey King, Hunter Corbitt and James Viet. Josh Wisinski added an interception with a big yard return. Vista faces Davis in the first round of the playoffs on Saturday. Jr. Midgets Vista 22, Foothill 0 The Jr. Midget defense continued its stingy ways, once again holding their opponent scoreless. Alec Spence led the aggressiveness of the defense with crushing hits to the host Mustangs. Linebacker Blake Martin made several tackles for losses. On the defensive line, Severin Anderson, Zackery Astakeesic and Nicholas Ellis kept Foothill on their heels. The offense, run by Jacob Norville, turned it on in the second half behind the blocking of the offensive line of Thomas Reinking, Quinn Russell, Josh Zielenski, Trent Jas and Brian Hamburg. Jacob Norville took the first score on a QB keeper. Ney Vencer scored on a 10-yard run and Ryan Van Saun scored on a 20-yard pass from Norville.
