SHINGLE SPRINGS — On the final night of the 2013 regular season, the Ponderosa Bruins swept visiting Sheldon 25-17, 25-23, 27-25 on Senior Night.

“It was a little closer than I think I would like. But overall they played really well. The first game they came out really well and I think that was awesome. Our three seniors got to play a lot and they all played really well,” Bruin coach Cassie Barton said.

The three Bruin soon-to-be graduates David Timm, Austin Hangebrauck and Danny Peiffer were honored before the match.

Ponderosda exploded out of the gates as Kellen Salluce’s kill gave the hosts a 10-4 advantage and Ponderosa led 11-5 when Tanner Charron’s hit fell. Another Charron kill upped the lead and the Bruins were in control thanks to Peiffer’s ace. Charron’s smash gave Ponderosa a 21-9 edge and Hangebrauck’s kill preceded a Husky error to switch the benches.

Charron’s block and kill paced the Bruins early in the second set. Salluce’s powerful kill increased the lead before Sheldon battled back. Salluce ended a Sheldon run with a clutch play but the visitors continued to press before Peiffer’s huge block switched momentum. Another Peiffer block pulled Ponderosa within three points of victory and Charron’s kill ended it.

The action was neck-and-neck throughout the third set. Sheldon led until Haward Gomes came through with a kill and a stuff as the hosts regained the lead. With Sheldon up 19-17, the Bruins came right back on Timm’s ace and a Gomes/Peiffer block for the 22-20 lead.

The Huskies rebounded to lead 24-23 before Gomes/Salluce combined for rejection to send the set to overtime where Charron served an ace and Davis Alexander ended it with a hit that fell between Sheldon defenders

Ponderosa ends the season at 14-12, with a  5-3 Delta River League record. The coaches and players reflected on the season afterwards.

“Overall, it’s been a good season. They’re a fun group of boys. They’re a little goofy, and spirited, which we enjoy,” Barton said.
