SHINGLE SPRINGS — Ponderosa continued its push in the Sac-Joaquin Division II girls soccer playoffs Thursday by taking the 3-0 quarterfinal victory over Roseville at Simon-Bruin Stadium.

In a battle between Bruins and Tigers, Ponderosa had an early attempt on a breakaway by Selena Brewer. Minutes later, Ashlynn Johnson and Sammi Fowler exchanged shots trying for the initial score but that didn’t come until the 12th minute when defender Brittany Gisin sent a ball to the top of the field which was deflected to Corrine Tank who left-footed a shot into the left top of the net.

Though Roseville pressed for an equalizer with several corner kicks, free kicks and shots, the Bruins’ defense challenged everything that came its way. Following a right-sided Sydney Rivera corner kick in the 53rd minute, Fowler sent a header past the opposing goalkeeper for the second goal.

The next 25 minutes was good soccer by both teams. Fowler seized a run up the middle and took a shot that hit the top bar and rebounded over to Devin Redor who followed it in for the 3-0 advantage.

“Once the team scored, they became energized and played great tonight, one of their best matches,” Ponderosa coach Greg Spangler said. “The four in the back line: McKenna Dunn, Alivya Wimmer, Erica Estes and Brittany Gisin were phenomenal.”

Now Ponderosa, the No. 2 seed, is one game away from playing for the D-II title. On Wednesday, the Bruins will host Tracy, the No. 6 seed. The winner will play the St. Mary’s-Bella Vista winner for the section title on Saturday, May 18.
