SHINGLE SPRINGS — Devastating jump serves and solid all-around play carried host Ponderosa past Davis 25-12, 25-12, 25-14 Thursday in Division I section playoff action.

The Bruins played well from the start while the Blue Devils’ serve receive issues plagued the I-80 team all evening. Ponderosa advances to host Del Oro tomorrow.

“We had a nice start (tonight) and played up to win in three. The guys are motivated to make it to the section finals,” Bruin coach Amy Stockett said. “We beat them (Davis) earlier this season but teams improve so we didn’t know what to expect.”

After introducing the team including recently named Delta River League MVP Haward Gomes and all league players Tanner Charron (9 kills), Taylor Charron and Kevin Salluce, Ponderosa went to work as a midset run of aces by Kristian Charron (7 overall, 5 kills) set the tone.

The second set opened with a string of aces by Tanner (4 aces) and ended as Gomes (6 kills) showed his hitting prowess with several kills. All four Charon brothers: Tanner, Taylor, Kristian and Kyle were in the rotation in the 13-point win.

Stockett injected JV callups Mason Huber (7 assists) and Brandon Jenkins which switched Taylor (25 assists, 4 kills) to a hitting position. Josh Bist added 5, libero Nic Davis had 9 serve receives and Salluce added three blocks.

“Right from the start we took off and had good points and long runs,” Taylor said. ” We had a lot of good aces that continued throughout the match.”
