Bradshaw Christian HS LogoBradshaw Christian makes its first appearance on Access Sacramento‘s Hometown Sports Game of the Week Friday evening when the Pride journey to Folsom’s Prairie City Stadium to face the host Vista del Lago Eagles.

Competing mostly against teams on the Division 4-6 levels, Drew Rickert‘s Pride seek to avenge last season’s home loss to the Eagles, whose competition is generally against teams playing on the Division 1 and 2 levels.

Vista Del Lago Eagles LogoA year ago the two teams squared off in a wild 56-42 shootout that lit-up points on the scoreboard like a pinball machine.  This year’s match-up is likely to electrify fans in the same fashion, largely because two of the principal contributors to last year’s scoring fest are back to lead the way for their respective teams.

Bradshaw Christian quarterback, Kyle Wilburn, connected on four touchdown passes for the Pride in last year’s fracas.  In return, Vista del Lago running back, Colby Carrera, scampered for four touchdowns to spark the Eagles’ victory.

Regardless of the outcome, this should pairing should give the fans plenty of entertainment, and keep the score keepers fully engaged.
