The Twin Bridges Lady Falcons traveled to Mustang country for a rival match up, Thursday, Sept. 10, during Ennis’ homecoming week.
The Falcons started the match strong but were not able to keep up with the Mustangs, and lost in three sets.
“We committed a few too many errors and allowed (Ennis) to go on long point runs,” said Falcon head coach Jen Kearns. “Ennis is a very strong team with great hitters and strong servers, and against a team of their caliber, we can’t give up 15 unanswered points.”
The Falcons, a younger team of athletes, are still looking to improve throughout the season, according to Kearns.
The Falcons were led by junior Audrey George and senior Cassidy Wetzel, both who played an impressive game Thursday. George, an outside hitter, and Wetzel, a middle hitter, also play rotational setters, leading the team in assisted hits, as well as blocks and kills.
During Thursday night’s matchup, though the Mustangs made away with the first two sets, the Falcons rallied for an early lead during the third, only falling to Ennis by two.
The lady Mustangs looked strong in the opening set with a tall front row of eager hitters. Outside powerhouse, Brigit Croy, rounded out the night with 14 of the team’s 27 total kills.
Senior Caitlin Klatt played the best all around for the Lady Mustangs, earning two aces with her vicious jump serve, three blocks at the net and rounded out her night with 11 digs.
Mustang head coach Betty Klein thought the team started off slow, but finally found their groove.
“Once we started passing, our hitters did a great job putting the ball down,” she said.
