I It has been a while since our Folsom Girls Varsity Soccer team has competed in the CIF Sac Joaquin Sections Championships, but they did tonight vs fellow SFL league team, Oak Ridge. Folsom earned their way there, the good old fashioned way, through hard work and true grit. They went in as the #12 seed after placing 3rd in the SFL league.
First the took down the #5 seed Woodcreek in double overtime 1-0.
Then they defeated the #4 seed, Franklin of Elk Grove 1-0 in regulation time.
The Bulldogs then moved on to the Section Semifinals battling the #8 seed River City who had toppled Davis( #1) in their previous game. The game went to double OT and then on to penalty kicks. Folsom was victorious winning 5-4.
Tonight they took on Oak Ridge (#3) for the 3rd time this year, displaying how strong the SFL league is. Once again it came down to double overtime! Oak Ridge scored once in each OT to become the Section Champs 2-0.
Folsom isn’t done, however! They have earned their way into the Regional (NorCal) playoffs. Stay tuned. The brackets will be announced tomorrow, March 1, 2020 on Sunday, evening.
Way to go Folsom Girls Soccer. You have battled a long way and Folsom is Bulldog proud of you!!!
