SHINGLE SPRINGS — With an autumn chill permeating the air, Ponderosa stepped onto its gridiron Friday hoping to open the Delta River League schedule with a win with Jesuit standing in the way.

Though the Bruins’ effort was full of intensity, they struggled to catch the Marauders after the visitors scored quickly in the first quarter. At the end of the evening, Jesuit left town owners of a 35-7 victory.

Once the Marauders took a 7-0 advantage, Ponderosa’s offense marched the ball down the field. With Colby Chiverton passing to Josh Bist and Austin Tibbs rushing the ball, the Bruins moved deep into Jesuit territory before a turnover ended the drive and Jesuit capitalized on the opportunity with a touchdown to take a 14-0 lead.

On the defensive side of the line of scrimmage, the Ponderosa defense of Chad Sturgis, Trae Providence, Craig McKinnon, Jeff Martin, Robert Holloway, Xavier Valles, T.J. Shamblin, Kevin Ackernecht, Aaron Jestice, Kyle Jennings along with several other Bruins were challenged with stopping the punishing rushing attack of the Marauders. A daunting task that Ponderosa struggled with until midway through the second half when the hometown team found some success.

After Jesuit’s lead grew to 21-0 in the second quarter, the Bruins mixed the pass and run to keep the Jesuit defense on its heels. The result was Ponderosa moving down to the Marauders’ 5 yard line where Tibbs went on a scamper up the middle for a touchdown to narrow the deficit to 21-7 going into halftime.

In the second half, the Bruins never came closer and Jesuit added two touchdowns to complete the scoring.

Ponderosa looks to get back into the win column next week when it travels to take on Pleasant Grove at Sheldon High School.
