BURROUGHS HIGH — The Burroughs High girls' volleyball team looked dominating in the first game of its playoff contest against Maranatha.
But the Indians went from overwhelming to overmatched in a hurry, losing the next two games.
Luckily for Burroughs, it was able to regroup, winning the fourth game and closing out the contest in the fifth game in a 25-10, 25-27, 19-25, 25-9, 15-8 CIF Southern Section Division II first-round match Tuesday at home.
The win puts the Indians (15-6) into a second-round match at 4 p.m. Thursday at Diamond Bar.
Burroughs Coach Edwin Real said his team seemed to lose its way in the second game.
"We lost our focus, and we starting making a lot of mistakes," said Real, whose team placed second in the Pacific League. "We had rotation violations, we had serving problems and we made a lot of other errors in the first game."
