EL DORADO — While Ponderosa High water polo coach Matt Jaehn liked the number of shots his Bruins took against Davis in Tuesday’s Delta Valley Conference match — the down side was a Blue Devils’ defense that created turnovers for goals that led to a 16-3 victory at the Aquatics Center on the campus of Union Mine.

“We have been working on our half-court offense, trying to open up some shots,” Jaehn said. “I was proud of the opportunities we got.”

The Bruins had six shots on goal in the opening quarter and 10 in the first half. Drivers Ellie Miller and Shelby Lee had a combined five shots on goal in the opening quarter.

But adjusting its defense, Davis applied pressure and created turnovers to generate a 5-0 first-quarter lead and 10-0 at the half.

“Davis is just fast,” Jaehn said.

Lee scored the Bruins’ first goal in the third quarter with 5:59 left, taking an assist from Miller but Davis scored its remaining points in the period to make it 16-1.

Bruin driver Heath Faulkner punched in the second goal from 5 meters with 4:59 left in the fourth quarter. Jake Pense, another driver, scored the Bruins’ final goal with 2:24 with an assist from Miller. Pense also had three steals in the game.

Jaehn was pleased with the performance of goalie Anthony Yocca and Miller.

“Anthony played excellent,” Jaehn said. “He organizes our guys out there. He had some great blocks.

Jaehn on Miller: “We noticed in the first quarter that they weren’t taking Ellie seriously. Whenever we noticed a team does that, we just unleash her. She played her best game of the year, so far.”
