Folsom High School Avenges Stockton to Advance in Playoff Action [Photos]

Almost a year after Folsom High School was whacked by St. Mary’s of Stockton in the Sac-Joaquin Section Division I title game, the No. 1 ranked Bulldogs scored vengeance on Saturday at the Sacramento State Hornet Stadium.

Racing to a 41-7 halftime lead on the strength of Joe Ngata’s four touchdown receptions from quarterback Kaiden Bennett, Folsom cruised to a 50-21 win over the (11-3) Rams. The undefeated Bulldogs went to 14-0 as they continue their quest toward the CIF State Title.

However, before a shot at the CIF title, (which would be at Sacramento State Dec. 17) the Bulldogs will have to win another playoff game this Friday. They will host central North Fresno (12-1) at 7:30 p.m. in the Division I-AA regional matchup at Folsom High School.

Division II Rivalry

In the Division II title game, also held at Sacramento State, Granite Bay topped Del Oro, 22-0. The Grizzlies celebrated their first title since 2012 on Saturday, before they get ready to face Pittsburg this Saturday at 6 p.m. at Granite Bay High School.
