Not This Year: Perennial Power Folsom High Falls to St. Mary’s in Division 1 Championship

Down 35-6 at one point Saturday night at Sacramento State, Folsom High School scored 19 unanswered points to trail by 10 points in the third quarter, and it looked like it was Game On. But unable ultimately to clench it, Folsom is out with the lopsided 56-25 win.

So that means it will be the 13-1 St. Mary’s Rams hosting the Freedom Falcons of Oakley in the California Interscholastic Federation NorCal Division 1-AA bowl game on Friday at the Rams’ Sanguinetti Field in Stockton.

Folsom, whose quarterback of two years ago, Jake Browning, led 4th-ranked Washington to a berth in the College Football Playoff against top-ranked Alabama on Dec. 31, saw its impressive 19-game section win streak end.

The Folsom Bulldogs finished the season 12-2.
