SHINGLE SPRINGS — Visiting Jesuit erupted for three goals in the final 20 minutes last Thursday to upend Ponderosa 5-1 in boys Delta River League soccer action.

Trailing 2-0 after a half of play, the Bruins upped the energy to start the second half. Their first, real pressure applied by Josh Israel, Cameron Spencer, Matthew Gould, Jared Heffner, Joseph Marquez, Finley Saint and others on the Jesuit backfield paid dividends after a side throw-in eventually trickled to Andrew Doe whose pooch kick floated over goalie Steve Catudal.

“It rolled out and I didn’t try to shoot but wanted to cross it in,” Doe said. “We did alright but we could have done better … we had our opportunities.”

The state and nationally ranked Marauders, talented and deep at each position, were a huge challenge for Ponderosa which is plagued by injury and illness. Their hat-trick ending deflated the Bruins’ comeback bid.

“This is Jesuit … we appreciate the fact they played their bench players but you could see as soon as they had their studs in the goals started coming,” Ponderosa coach Greg Spangler said. “We’re happy we got a goal and gave our fans something to cheer about.”

Goals by Tucker Bone, Evan Barrett and Mathew Watson sealed the deal for the visitors. Watson’s score was assisted by former Bruin Greg Kay on a run to the corner and cross to the weakside.

“Once we get going and once we get combining on top we’re pretty fluid,” Kay said. “We didn’t have our typical starting lineup out there because we wanted to get others some playing time.”
