 Colby Chiverton threw two touchdown passes on Friday night against Whitney.

SHINGLE SPRINGS — The scoring came quickly as Ponderosa achieved perfection with its first four drives Friday against Whitney, resulting in the 28-7 Capital Valley Conference victory.
Thanks to the fearless rushing of Ryan Edelmann and sure-handed receiving of Josh Bist, the Bruins scored touchdowns the first four times they had possession.

No fundamental was overlooked: From Stephen Brosseau’s timely 15-yard reception on 4th-and-15 (leading to the second of two Edelmann touchdown runs), to a defense holding the injury-ravaged Wildcats to one first down until the final minutes of the second quarter.

But Ponderosa’s offense went dark after Whitney tallied its lone touchdown on a blown assignment in the secondary that resulted in a 39-yard pass from Tyrik Ceasar to Dom Watson.

“We blocked, we tackled, we worked together, everyone did their part,” Bruin coach Jason Tenner said. “We took our foot off the pedal and coasted, and (Whitney) had a chance there at the end. I expect us to play better, which is the most important message I can deliver right now to my team. If they’re not doing what we’re supposed to be doing, it’s my fault.”

Still, credit Ponderosa (2-1, 4-2) for their near-flawless exhibition in the first half. It took the Bruins six plays — two Whitney offsides penalties — to drive 87 yards as Edelmann burst up the middle for a 24-yard touchdown at the 10:04 mark.

Just over two minutes later, Ponderosa was back in the end zone when quarterback Colby Chiverton hit Conrad Washington on a short swing pass. The senior wideout did the rest to complete a 34-yard catch-and-run.

Bist enjoyed a fine first half, hauling in receptions of 19 and 21 yards. He grew the advantage to 28-0 midway through the second period by catching a 9-yard lob from Chiverton in the end zone.

Ponderosa offense’s biggest highlight thereafter came on a 49-yard sprint by Edelmann in the fourth quarter. The defense, with fine efforts by Zach Eisen and Austin Ryan, kept Whitney in check.

From the visitors’ perspective, Ponderosa caught Whitney (0-3, 0-6) enduring a plague of injuries this season. Caesar started the year at junior varsity and is the fourth quarterback his team has used this season.

“As a coach, my heart bleeds for a team that has to go through that,” Tenner said.

The Bruins will look to avoid any bad luck of their own making this Friday at Del Campo in another league contest.

“We just thought we won the game already,” Bist said. “Those first few drives, we were unstoppable. That’s what kind of potential we have as a team.”
