SHINGLE SPRINGS — Ponderosa High’s varsity boys basketball program endured a tough loss Friday evening at home, losing 81-48 to an offensively charged Folsom squad in Delta River League action.

Facing a Bulldog roster stacked with scorers and filled with size, Ponderosa coach Troy Selvey knew his Bruins would have to bring their best game to the court.

“Folsom is a great team,” Selvey said. “We knew they had a great program heading into the game — we played well, the players fought with determination and didn’t give up though obviously we would have liked to see a different result.”

While Folsom put on a jump shot clinic throughout the night, the Bruins still managed to provide perimeter excitement. Nine of Ponderosa’s 11 first quarter points came from behind the arc as co-captain Josh Bist, Matt Bejsovic and Jordan Brennen all hit from downtown. Bist found himself in a position for a 3-point play in the first quarter, but couldn’t convert the free throw.

Bruin big man and co-captain Chris Snyder was held scoreless in the first quarter, but continued to battle in the post en route to a team-high 14 points, while Bejsovic and Bist each tallied 11 on the evening.

“I’m proud of the effort we put forth against a great team like Folsom,” Selvey said. “I know it’s hard for the guys to go through games like that, we’d love to get some more games in the win column — but I’m proud that we never give up and believe that we can win any game we play.”

Brennan finished with five points on the night, while co-captain Marcus Forbes hit a beautiful bomb in the second quarter for his three. Conrad Washington had two points while Shelby Lee and Marty Padilla had a point each to round out the scoring for Ponderosa.
