SHINGLE SPRINGS — Playoff bound Ponderosa upended visiting Folsom 25-20, 25-22, 25-19 Wednesday evening, setting the stage for next week’s final match of the regular season.

“We kinda played down after playing so hard (Monday) against Oak Ridge,” Bruin Kendra Davidson said. “Today was more mellow.”

It also wasn’t against a rival. Ponderosa ran up a good first-set lead, sweated out a Bulldog comeback that saw Folsom reel off eight consecutive point and won it on an Erin Fogarty kill.

The Bruins relied on the savvy play of setter Nicole Banke, the steady play of Megan Jones, the all-around play of Kassie McGill and Paris Backston, Davidson’s defense, Fogarty’s first-set hitting, the net presence of Alex Boyle and Sarah Walker and late contributions from Alexa Carcione and Christine McDavid.

Boyle dominated the end of the second set as Ponderosa closed on a 7-1 run after trailing 21-18. The Bruins led the entire third set with Carcione scoring two kills at the end, including the match-winner.

A Bulldog nemesis all evening was serves that caught the net; not so for Ponderosa.

“As usual we served really well and had good blocking. Our defense has really improved late in the season,” Bruin coach Sheri Millhollin said. “Our No. 1 goal each season is to make the playoffs so it’s really important to continue to do so.”

Next Monday is Ponderosa’s Senior Night.

Kills: Boyle, 5; Jones, 4; Walker, 3. Assists: Banke, 14. Aces: Banke, Davidson, McGill. Blocks: Boyle, 6; Fogarty, 2; Walker, 2. Digs: Davidson, 13; Backston, 5; Fogarty, 4; Carcione, 4. Serve receive: Jones, 9; Davidson, 8; Banke, 6; Backston, 5; McGill, 4; McDavid, 4.
