   Thursday night was an important night for the Lady Mustangs, coming into a game following three straight blowout losses. They came into the game with a chip on their shoulder as captains Carolyn McKee and Lindsey McLaughlin are used to a winning environment and hoped to spread it throughout the team.

   It was a rough start for both teams, with communication non-existent throughout the first part of the first set. Adversity was already a factor, as Carolyn McKee was benched the first set for a missed practice earlier in the week. Someone needed to step up big for the Ladies, and Lindsey McLaughlin was it.  Captain Lindsey McLaughlin came up big for the Ladies as she had four blocks and was a wall against the poor Armijo offense. Briana Davisson also stepped up, as she had three good spikes to win the first set with a score of 25-16 in favor of Rodriguez.

   At the start of the second set, the Mustangs had the momentum even after a sloppy first set, but Carolyn McKee was back into the starting lineup at first whistle. Carolyn instantly made a major impact making three perfect serves in a row to tie the score up at four apiece. Isabella Ramos entered the game and the passing game instantly upgraded. The Mustangs looked sharp and took a commanding 25-15 victory in set two.

   The Mustangs continued with Briana Davisson setting the Ladies off to a tremendous start with seven perfect serves in a row to create a seven to zero lead. The rest of the game was history. Armijo was unable to keep up with Rodriguez’s talent across the board and the game came to a close in set 3 with a final score of 25-15.

   A win looks good against a crosstown rival, but it’s not about winning, it’s about how you win. The Lady Mustangs looked sloppy on Thursday and the coaches agreed. After the game, head coach Sherry Guzman was unsatisfied with the Mustang victory as she said, “ You don’t want to win like that. That was pathetic”. All in all, much practice is needed for the young and inexperienced team, but they’re headed in the right direction with the first win of the season on the board.
