Matthew Gould’s goal early in the match made for a 1-1 halftime score. At the break, Gould, Spencer, Jose Carillo Cervantes, Jack Carpenter, Giovanni DeLaurentis, Curtis Goldsmith, Joe Marquez, Jonathan Morgan and Trevor Swartz were honored for their contributions.
“It was a tough season with the injuries but the boys responded well trying to finish strong. It was a great Senior Night win,” Bruin coach Greg Spangler said.
Spencer’s dogged determination gave Ponderosa the lead. After taking Nicholas Davis’ upfield pass, Spencer drew a crowd of Bulldogs, slipped them, and found the open net with Folsom players left lying in his wake.
“There was a guy on my right I went past, the keeper came out and two-to-three guys behind me,” Spencer said. “After scoring I noticed all of them on the ground.”
Spencer added insurance on a ball he booted too far ahead that the Bulldog keeper chose to fall on rather than let roll out. The mishandle was pounced on by Spencer who guided it into the goal.
The Bruins avenged an earlier loss at Folsom. Ponderosa, which Spangler said won’t make the playoffs, had one more match yesterday at Sheldon.
