De La Salle (3-1) has won seven state championships in the 15-year history of the CIF playoffs (more than any other school), but last year marked the first time in that 15-year span that the Spartans didn’t get a chance to play in the State Title Game.
Prior to last year’s loss, De La Salle Folsom had defeated the two teams’ five previous encounters by an average score of 36-14.
To say they want to avenge last year’s shocking loss and return to the big game is an understatement.
Folsom (3-1) is second to De La Salle with four state championships, and the Bulldogs have made it their mission to chase the number five this season.
Aside from the fact that this game is a rehash of the Northern California Division’s I-AA Bowl championship, these two teams are extremely even.
Both Folsom and De La Salle suffered their only loss of the season, 3-0 at Serra Padres, and both teams lost their games by five points or fewer.
This game has all the makings of an instant classic and you shouldn’t miss it.
