Folsom High School has had a spirited rivalry with San Ramon Valley of Danville the last three years.
The Wolves have a potent offense and play in the highest division of the North Coast Section. Among their rivals is national powerhouse De La Salle of Concord.
So Bee top-ranked Folsom, the defending Sac-Joaquin Section Division II champion and CIF Northern California Open Division Bowl finalist, was put to the test Friday night in Danville at least in the first half.
The Bulldogs, ranked No. 2 behind De La Salle in Northern California by Maxpreps.com, needed another strong game by junior Jake Browning to overcome the Wolves 67-36.
Leading 22-21 late in the second quarter, San Ramon Valley (1-2) couldn't keep pace with the Bulldogs' fast-paced, no-huddle spread offense.
Browning finished with eight touchdowns and completed 37 of 48 passes for 596 yards.
Will McClure had eight catches for 236 yards and two touchdowns. Bailey Laolagi caught two touchdown passes and also rushed for a score. Ben Trumm added a 40-yard field goal.
