SHINGLE SPRINGS — The Ponderosa soccer squad fell 2-1 to Sheldon Tuesday to finish in third place in the Delta River League standings, good enough for a postseason slot.

At halftime, the Bruins honored seniors Zandra Newell, Missy Hanson, Amanda Maiello, Alannah John, Elena Hanson, Corinne Tank, Jamie Bardwell, Devin Redor, Sheridan Fox and Jenna Hufford.

“I’m happy to be going to the playoffs in Division 1 for the second time in three years,” Ponderosa coach Greg Spangler said. “We’ll bring positive forces with us and I am excited to be playing against new competition.”

The Bruins started every senior except Fox — unable to play this year due to an ACL injury. Minutes in, Ponderosa keeper Alannah John stopped Sheldon’s Ashari Hines but not the return as the Huskies took the lead.

Ponderosa gained momentum with several corner kicks and missed shots and at minute 20, Devin Redor’s  cross to the waiting feet of Selena Brewer tied the match.

In the second half, both teams exchanged shots on goal but once again Hines struck to break the tie. The  Bruins fought hard but could not come back finishing league with a 1-2 against Sheldon.

Monday against St. Francis, a Redor-to-Brewer connection in the 15th minute held until the Marauders scored twice in the final five minutes to steal the victory.

Ponderosa finishes 5-3-2 in league and 13-3-2 for the regular season.
