The Lady Mustangs were back in action Thursday night as they traveled to Hopkins to face the Vikings in their conference season opener.
Set one was a 1 point battle back and forth between the two teams for the first 10 points and then the Mustangs sped up the pace of their offense to pull ahead and get the win 25-13. They came out strong in the second set as well and defeated the Vikings again 25-13. In the third set, the Vikings turned up the heat and started scoring with a strong outside hit, forcing the Mustangs to take a time out to refocus and get back to business.
