Folsom scored  and then a few minutes later Franklin scored twice, making the score 1-3. Folsom answered back with one more goal, but couldn’t tie it up to push it into overtime. Final score 2-3.

GIRLS SOCCER

Folsom (6) Girls Soccer hosted Pleasant Grove (11) on Wednesday, February 13, 2019. Going into the game, Folsom had a lot of respect for PG’s team. They are a much stronger team then their seeding (11) might suggest. We knew it would be a very competitive game. Folsom fought hard but in the end lost their first home game of the season in Round 1 of the Sac Joaquin Section playoffs 0-2. Congratulations to our 3 eliminated teams. You all had tremendous seasons and we are proud of all of you.

 

Folsom is Bulldog Proud of every one of our Competitors!!!
