SHINGLE SPRINGS — Behind the hitting of Tanner Charron Wednesday, the Ponderosa High boys volleyball team rolled past visiting El Dorado 25-18, 25-14, 25-16.

Most of Charron’s kills — 20 in all — came off sets from brother Taylor (33 assists). El Dorado, coming off a tough five-set loss the night before at West Campus, competed well in the first set and lost a 7-1 advantage in the second.

“I think we we played very well. One thing you want as a team is when you get ahead … stay ahead and we did that,” Bruin coach Amy Stockett said.

Wednesday’s match featured two talented sophomore setters in Taylor and Cougar Elijah Magat. El Dorado’s hitting came from Tait Miller, Landen Warren, Weston Rademacher and Matthew Ehly but Tanner, whose one setback was a rejection by Dustin Brown, stole the spotlight.

“West Campus is a ball control team that reads offenses well and responds defensively, gets the ball over and made us work,” El Dorado coach Alan Magat said. “Tonight our defense played much better and our goal was to repair what didn’t go right last night and we did.”

The first set was back-and-forth til 9-9 where Ponderosa began pulling away with Taylor on serve. Brown’s block kept the Cougars within two but it was 21-16 after Danny Peiffer deposited a stray pass and the Bruins closed on a 4-2 run.

Elijah’s and Miller served El Dorado to the early lead in the second set but Tanner hit Ponderosa back in the game and 12′s block put the Bruins ahead for good. The serving of Haward Gomes, David Timm and Austin Hangebrauck carried Ponderosa to a 2-0 lead.

Tanner’s kill tied the third set at 3s and his block put the Bruins in the lead. Help from Davis Alexander and Kellen Salluce, who had a perfect 4-of-4 kills, led the Bruins to the finish line.
