Royal’s heart beat strong as the players willed their way to a five-game victory over Valencia in the CIF-Southern Section Division II volleyball quarterfinals Friday night.
“These teams are even, it is apparent the team that makes the least mistakes will win,” said Royal head coach Dean Borth before the game.

Valencia team, 26-24, 25-18, 23-25, 22-25, 15-11.
