After a strong start to the match, the Indians became complacent in the third set surrendering a game to the Rams. But Burroughs re-grouped and dominated the fourth set to advance to the second round to play at Dos Pueblos on Thursday night.
“We played well enough to get by but not how we need to play if we want to advance,” Burroughs coach Joel Brinton said. “I feel we gave Millikan loads of confidence. Then it got really tough.
“I thought Jonathan Fuentes did a great job. I really liked how he played and Daniel Marbach did a great job also for us.”
