It was a tough night for the Bruins as they were shut out against rival Oak Ridge. The Trojans scored in every quarter and the game finished with a 41-0 score. Ponderosa will play this Friday away against the area's top ranked team, the 8-0 Folsom Bulldogs. The varsity game will start at 7:15pm. Next week will be Ponderosa's last regular season game at home against Sheldon high school.
When the defense gives up just seven points it’s usually enough to carry a team to victory. For Ponderosa Friday, it wasn’t the case as host Rio Linda utilized a kickoff and interception return for scores to down the previously unbeaten Bruins 21-7.
Union Mine pressed Ponderosa for most of the first half. After Kevin Ackernecht’s 90-yard kickoff return to open the second half ignited the Bruins, Ponderosa found momentum in its running game to come away 30-13 winners.
