Folsom Girls Soccer travelled to Franklin (EG) today for the 2nd round of the Sac Joaquin Section Playoffs. Folsom the #12 seed defeated Woodcreek (#5) on Wednesday, February 19, 2020, 2-1 in overtime.
Today, Friday, February 21, 2020, Folsom played a quiet first half vs Franklin (#4), but came out in the 2nd half and scored in the first 10 minutes. Kaylee Gillespie threw the ball in to Grace Kuntz, who dropped an arching shot over the goalie.
The defense then went into action, fending off all attempts by Franklin to even the score. Folsom goalkeeper, Emma Hoffman, made a very smart choice on a goal attempt that would have taken a perfect jumping catch and in the 2 seconds she had to make the decision, she jumped up and popped the ball up and over the goal. Great save Emma!
Folsom went on to win the game in regulation time, 1-0.
Folsom will now travel to River City (#8), who just upset Davis (#1) today 2-1, on Tuesday, February 25, 2020 at 6:00pm.
Good luck Bulldogs! Folsom is so proud of all your hard work!!!
