CYPRESS — The Cerritos Dons, with a kill off the block and behind the Cypress bench,  closed the book on their dominant regular season and opened the door to the playoffs Wednesday. The Dons defeated the Centurions (14-4, 8-1 in Empire League play) (29-27, 22 -25, 26-24, 25-15). “This game was a big test for our mental game,” senior captain Vince Bautista said. The Dons (26-13, 10-0 In 605 League play) have played just one five set match all year, when they lost to St. Anthony. Wednesday’s slug-fest against a one-loss team in a road gym demonstrated Cerritos’ ability to win the tight matches they could face in the playoffs. “Since we’ve been exposed to good volleyball we’ll be able to stay strong mentally and just finish games as quickly as possible,” Bautista said. Cerritos had been on a tear coming into the match, having won four of its last five games. All those wins had been in straight sets. Cerritos head coach Khanh Vo still sees room for improvement against stronger opponents. “We can’t afford to give up a string of points,” Vo said. “I think that’s what we can work on.” The Dons have been tested even in two set matches, however. In tournament play earlier this month, Cerritos swept Oxnard and Quartz Hill which are each undefeated in their respective leagues. “In our non-league games I make a concerted effort to play very competitive teams,” Vo said. Cypress proved itself to fit into the competitive category. Despite two rejections from the Dons’ Peter Shin, The Cypress blockers had the early edge at the net and took an 8-4 lead. Cerritos fell behind 13-6 but another Shin block pulled them to within three at 16-13. A ball hit wide gave Cerritos a 19-18 lead. The teams tied seven more times before an ace from Bautista completed the comeback, 29-27. “We had a lot of miscommunication and it was just up to us to refocus,” Bautista said. When the Dons avoided the Cypress blockers, they did so with offensive creativity. A cross-court backwards set from captain Dylan Wong set up a kill that put Cerritos up 5-0 in the second. However, A Cypress double-block capped a comeback to 8-8. A thunderous cross-court kill tied the match at a set a piece. Neither team led by more than five through the third set. [related_articles location=”left” show_article_date=”false” article_type=”automatic-primary-section”]An ace from Dons’ junior setter Ethan Reyes created yet another late tie at 18-18 in the third set. Cerritos fought off three set points en route to a 26-24 set win displaying the resilience needed in playoff situations. Cerritos rode the momentum to a 25-15 fourth set win. The Dons begin the CIFSS Division 3 playoffs 7 p.m. April 30. Their opponent is TBA.

We have gathered here tonight as the sun rolls off the hills surrounding us, and two thousand years ago, long before light pollution, in Jerusalem, the night surely had fallen deep and complete around the city. And it was in this darkness, […]
