Carrizo Springs outlasts Lady Mustangs

The Natalia Lady Mustangs overcame a lop-sided opening set loss to Carrizo Springs last Friday night and ended up forcing a five set competition. Unfortunately, small miscues in the fifth and final set resulted in a heart-breaking non-district loss.
“We have had some tough losses this pre-season, but we are confident in our preparation as we approach district play,” Coach Tamara Bednorz said.
Carrizo Springs opened the non-district battle with a lop-sided 25-14 victory over the girls in blue. Natalia responded well, as they picked up 25-22 and 26-24 wins over the Lady Cats.
Unfortunately, Carrizo was able to knock off the Lady Mustangs 25-21 and 15-8 to finish the win over the home squad.
Stat leaders: Aces- Perez 3, Corona and Sanchez 2 each. Kills- Masters 14, Vera 4, Boucher and Padilla 3 each. Assists- Boucher 16. Blocks- Masters 3. Digs- Perez 9.
