SHINGLE SPRINGS — Though the Ponderosa High girls basketball team ended its Delta River League game against Pleasant Grove on a postive note with a solid fourth quarter performance, it was the Eagles’ fast start that carried them to the 66-43 victory at the Bruins’ gym Friday.

The Bruins showed spark in the second half against the Eagles’ defense, and began making shots. Despite the Eagles’ quick ball-handling skills, turnovers swung momentum toward the Bruin offense which took advantage.

The Bruins’ fourth quarter effort led to outscoring their counterparts 21-6.

“We played hard until the end, and we didn’t quit,” Ponderosa head coach Noel O’Donnell said. “We had a very strong fourth quarter.”

Pleasant Grove came out cooking with 23 points in the first quarter and held the Bruins to just two points until the middle of the second. The Bruins struggled to keep the Eagles from scoring and early misses from the field hurt Ponderosa’s ability to keep pace.

“We didn’t bring it in the first half, said Bruin guard/forwardDanielle Craft, who ended the night with 15 points and two rebounds.

Maddie Calyton added 10 points for the Bruins. Alex Boyle and Ashlyn Zentner threw in six points each, and Sophia George, Mackenzie O’Donnell and Danielle Becker each scored two points.
