Folsom outlasts Roseville 61-49 in wild affair

Kris Richardson didn't have much boom in his voice after this one.

The Folsom football coach was nearly keeled over in a fit of exhaustion after watching his Bulldogs hold off Roseville 61-49 in one of those point-a-second affairs that drives defensive coordinators to the point of madness.

Folsom amassed 575 yards of offense, which is what Roseville nearly totaled.
"Oh my goodness," Richardson said. "I'm completely spent. What a game. It was one of those wild, crazy shootouts between two great offenses."

The game was delayed 30 minutes due to lightning strikes, and then the teams put on some fireworks a year after Folsom routed Roseville in two meetings.

Folsom quarterback Tanner Trosin outmatched Roseville signal caller Zac Cunha. Trosin completed 32 of 49 passes for 368 yards and five touchdowns and he ran for 84 yards and two more scores.

J.J. Muldrow had 133 yards receiving and two scores and he reached the end zone on a punt return and a kickoff return for the Bulldogs, who moved to 2-1.

"Tanner's been great, just put us on his back and carried us in every game, and J.J.'s doing amazing things, too," Richardson said.

Mike Finnerty and I will talk about this game and all the Week 2 action on the SureWestSports Radio Show on Saturday morning from 9-10 a.m. on ESPN1320. Guests include Sheldon coach Josh Crabtree and Woodcreek coach John Hildebrand.
