Had To Stay Hot To Take Down 7 Rivers Christian
Had the Mustang’s played the entire match like they did in the first set, this would have been a big win for the girls. After multiple lead changes in the first set, the Mustang’s held onto a late set side out, to drive a set wining ace to win 25-23.
After the first, the Mustang’s struggled with serves and floor coverage, dropping the next two set, 25-15 and 25-16. The girls battled back in the fourth set and held a multiple point advantage at 20. Hot serves and hard hits from the Seven Rivers Christian, pushed the talented Warriors squad into the lead and a win of the fourth set, 25-10, which also gave Seven Rovers Christian the match.
