The Portola volleyball team won two playoff matches last week to advance to the Northern Section championship game last Saturday in Red Bluff, where the Tigers lost to top-seeded Hamilton.

Portola, seeded third in Division V, had a first-round bye before hosting East Nicolaus in the quarterfinals Nov. 16.

East Nicolaus had knocked Portola out of the playoffs the past two seasons, and it almost happened again last week, until Portola staged a dramatic come-from-behind victory in game five.
