With top-ranked Folsom averaging 57 points a game, Del Oro coach Casey Taylor’s goal was to try to slow down the Bulldogs.
It worked to a certain extent in the first half, but it wasn’t enough to stop Maxpreps.com’s No. 4 national team in a critical Sierra Foothill League game Friday night in Loomis.
State touchdown career leader Jake Browning threw three TD passes, including two to Jake Jeffrey, and Bailey Laolagi returned an interception 54 yards for a score and had a 2-yard touchdown run as the Bulldogs topped the Golden Eagles 42-7.
Del Oro (2-4, 1-1) often rushed three players and dropped the rest back in pass coverage to try to slow Browning and a Folsom (6-0, 2-0) passing attack averaging more than 400 yards. Browning was limited to 230 yards, but Folsom rushed for 281.
