ROSEVILLE ó Some nights all cylinders are firing. Others itís just a struggle to score. But big plays, defensive lapses and a myriad of penalties took a bit of the shine off for Ponderosa in Friday nightís 41-12 Capital Valley Conference win over Oakmont.

We played well in stretches tonight, but we were not very crisp on offense,” said Bruin head coach Jason Tenner. “We gave up some big plays on defense and we had way too many penalties. With Roseville and Consumnes Oak coming up, we have to play better than we did tonight.”

Looking to move quickly, the Bruins came out throwing but three straight incomplete passes forced a punt and Oakmont went to work quickly, driving 11 plays to the Bruins’ 21. A costly holding penalty thwarted the drive and a 38-yard field goal attempt by Nick Micheli was just short.

After several penalties to start the Bruins next drive the offense finally got going as Ryan Edelmann carried for 18 yards and Josh Bist hauled in two passes from Colby Chiverton for 53 yards. Tyce Providence carried the final 13 yards on the drive to put the Bruins up 7-0.

“I thought our defense came out and we got the real quick three and out and then we started moving the ball,” said Oakmont head coach Tim Moore. “Penalties really affected both offenses and it hurt us on that first drive. We would have like to get the first score there.”

Oakmont had a game high 13 penalties for 130 yards and Ponderosa was flagged nine times for 84 yards.

Ponderosa got the ball back quickly as Dave Dyas came up with an interception. Seven plays later Chiverton found Bist in the end zone for a six-yard score to put the visiting team up 14-0. Chiverton finished the night with 288 yards on 20-of-29 passing. Bist had a game high 10 receptions for 163 yards.

After a quick three and out possession by the Vikings the Bruins found the end zone again, going 88 yards in 12 plays, 68 of them on five Chiverton passes. Tyce Providence found the end zone once more, going the final five yards for a 20-0 Bruin lead.

“I thought at times we moved the ball well and did some things well on offense,” said Tenner. “The penalties really hampered us and we have to clean that stuff up before (this) week (Ponderosa will host Roseville).”

Oakmont would rally on its next possession, as quarterback Joshua Daniels accounted for 75 yards (60 passing, 15 rushing) and scored from four yards out to cut the lead to 20-6. Ponderosa’s next drive got to the Vikings’ 20 before a costly turnover soured the potential scoring drive.

“It was just Josh’s fourth game out there and I thought he did a great job keeping plays alive,” said Moore. “The kids played their hearts out tonight. We were a few plays away from making this a game. (They) Ponderosa capitalized on a few of our mistakes and that was the difference.”

Opening the second half, the Bruins defense forced its second of three turnovers on the game, as Xavier Valles recovered a Viking fumble and the Bruins put the game away with a 65-yard drive capped by Edelmann 10-yard run to go up 27-6. After forcing a Viking punt the Bruins found the end zone again as Jimmy Sanders scored on a three yard run and a 34-6 lead. A Robert Holloway interception on the next drive led to the Bruins final score, a Sanders 26-yard score.

Oakmont would tally the game’s final points with just 33 seconds left as as Daniels found Jacob Tawney for a six-yard score.

“(This Friday’s game) going to be big test (against Roseville),” said Tenner. “We have to have a good week of practice and play more consistently than we did tonight. We’re going to need to play four quarters of good football.”

Edelmann led all rushers with 121 yards on 13 carries. Sanders added 38 on four carries and Providence 27 on five totes. Conrad Washington and Stephen Brosseau each added three receptions for 36 and 35 yards, respectively. The Bruin defense also added five sacks on the night that included two from Austin Ryan.

Del Campo took the lead with 2:03 left in the game when Cougar QB Zack Lopes, pressured out of the pocket, found Clinton for a 17-yard TD. The Bruins tried to set up a come-from-behind victory, but another incomplete pass on 4th down at their own 37 ended their hopes.
