Eagles run past Ponderosa

SACRAMENTO — Heading into Friday night’s Delta River League game with Pleasant Grove High, Ponderosa’s head football coach Jason Tenner knew his Bruins had to be perfect against the undefeated Eagles at Sheldon High School.

Unfortunately, perfection was not the order of the day and Ponderosa suffered a 46-0 loss.

“When you play against a team as talented as Pleasant Grove,” Tenner said, “You have to be perfect. We weren’t and that’s what happens when you don’t make the plays you need to make.”

The Bruins were held to a meager 65 yards on offense, while Pleasant Grove’s rushing game racked up 383. Ponderosa had better success against the pass.

Before the floodgates opened, Ponderosa make a pseudo-statement with its opening drive, forcing the Eagles to reevaluate their defense. Once the hosts tightened up, there wasn’t much the smaller Bruin lineup could accomplish.

With Pleasant Grove’s defense setting the tone, the Eagles took over on offense and literally ran away with the game.

“I think we had a great initial start with that drive so that was a step in the right direction,” Tenner said. “But we just didn’t have the talent to compete with a team that strong.”

Tenner & Co. adjusted throughout the night to try and put an end to Pleasant Grove’s dominance in the ground game but the Bruins simply couldn’t make a stand large enough to stem the bleeding.

Pleasant Grove led 21-0 after one quarter and 40-0 at half – picking up a single second-half touchdown while draining the clock for two quarters.
