FAIR OAKS — Four, first-half Ponderosa touchdowns was a good, first-half momentum-booster in Friday’s Capital Valley Conference football game at Bella Vista … but not the five turnovers that came afterwards for the Bruins, who fell to the Broncos 42-34.
The game was tied at 28-28 at halftime when the Bruins’ (1-4, 0-2) second fumble of the second half led to Bella Vista’s go-ahead touchdown.
Ponderosa scored its only touchdown of the half toward the end of the third quarter when Kyle Charron went up the middle, turned left and crossed the plane on a 1-yard run with 1:24 left — but the extra-point kick missed and the Bruins still trailed by a point.
With 11:12 left in the game, Bella Vista (3-2, 1-1) tacked on its final touchdown. Ponderosa had possession of the ball three more times after the Broncos’ score but lost the ball each time.
“We made a lot of mistakes,” said Ponderosa head coach Jason Tenner as he walked off the field with his team. “We just didn’t tackle. You can’t beat anybody doing that. Turnovers and missed tackles.”
Week 4: Kris Charron had 29 yards receiving with three receptions against Antelope on Friday Night. Pondo was defeated by a score of 55-21.
Week 2: The Bruins looked to continue their winning ways with their first road game of the season against Vista del Lago on Friday. But the Eagles produced a 35-28 win.
