SHINGLE SPRINGS — A fourth quarter rally fell short Wednesday night for the Ponderosa High boys basketball team, losing to Jesuit, 73-64 in a Delta River League contest.

The Bruins (0-6, 8-15) outscored the Marauders (2-5, 11-12), 32-25 in the fourth quarter despite the fact  Ponderosa trailed 52-32 early in the quarter. Ponderosa center Chris Snyder scored 14 of his game-high 26 points in the quarter that included making 9-of-11 free throws. Overall, Snyder was 10-of-14 from the line and pulled down seven rebounds, including three offensive.

Jesuit held leads of 60-51, 62-53 and 67-60 in the fourth. Ponderosa made 10-of-13 free throws but the Marauders sank 14-of-18 in the quarter and 31-of-44 in the game.

“That’s the ball game right there,” Ponderosa head coach Troy Selvey said.

Selvey was pleased with his team’s effort in rallying back from a 20-point deficit that delighted the home crowd but felt his Bruins should have taken command early in the game.

“We waited too long to play basketball,” Selvey said. “We’ve struggled to put four strong quarters together.”

Leading 25-20 at halftime, Jesuit built its lead with an 11-5 run for a 37-25 lead midway through the third quarter in which the Marauders had no turnovers. Toward the end of the quarter, Jesuit forward Isiah King canned two 3-pointers, and forward Lake Lutes hit another for a 48-32 going into the final quarter.

Jesuit forced Ponderosa into four turnovers in the second quarter that led to a 24-17 lead. But the Bruins pressured the Marauders through most of the first half.

“We played with intensity,” said Selvey of the first half.

Bruins guard Trevor Hammitt scored 12 points. Joshua Boiler followed with nine points, Marcus Forbes added seven, forward Curtis Opsahl, five, Nicolas Bruks, four, and guard Josh Bist scored two. Lutes finished with 31 points for Jesuit while King had 20.
