SHINGLE SPRINGS —  On a cold and dark autumn evening, the wind howled as Ponderosa High ran onto the field to take on Folsom’s punishing defense and its lightening-quick offense that makes the Bulldogs one of the toughest teams in the section. For the Bruin seniors playing their final time in front of the home crowd, the Delta River League challenge was daunting.
After an initial series in which the Ponderosa defense of Travis Fisher, Will Dyas, Dominic Campodonico, Preston Stark, Jordan Harter, Brycen Carlson, Nasser Bseiso, Riley Nooner, Allen Emmons and Bryce Neff forced Folsom to punt, the Bruins soon found out that it wouldn’t be easy to stop the Bulldogs for the remainder of the game.
Once Ponderosa was unable to move the ball offensively, the Bulldogs took over for their second series and quickly found the end zone for the first time on the night.
As the storm clouds rolled in, along with it arrived the reverberating noise of the Bulldogs marching towards the Bruins’ goal line  a racket that didn’t relent until the visitors from Folsom handily defeated Ponderosa by the final score of 56-0.
Any hopes for the Bruins rapidly diminished once the Bulldogs scored their second touchdown midway through the first quarter to take a 14-0 lead. With the rain falling, the offensive attack for Ponderosa was challenged by the elements which only gave Folsom a greater advantage.
With the Bruins unable to gain yardage on offense, Christian Canepa was forced to punt numerous times to give the Bulldog offense possession. Though Ponderosa’s defense gallantly battled, despite their efforts the Bruins found themselves at the wrong end of a 35-0 score at halftime.
Over the course of the second half, Folsom never let up as its offense ate up yardage and moved the ball on Ponderosa. As a result, the visitors marched down the field and began the second half with another touchdown.
On the offensive side of the ball, the Bruins were never able to get anything going as the Folsom defense constantly found itself in the Ponderosa backfield.
The Bruins look to bounce back with a win Friday when they return to the gridiron to take on Sheldon.
