With the season closing soon for the Mustang volleyball team, every game matters.
The Lady Broncos faced off with two talented teams in the last week with a victory over Westmoore and then fell to No. 1 Edmond Santa Fe on Tuesday.
“I think we are gaining confidence as we are going along. I think we are headed in the right direction, and the girls are focused,” said head coach Steve Hajek.
Against Westmoore, Mustang took care of business while making quick work of the Lady Jaguars with a three game to none sweep.
In Game One and Two, the Broncos jumped out early and never looked back, winning both games 25-11, and then closed out the match with a 25-23 victory in Game Three.
“In Game One and Game Two, we were on. The third game we won, I made a few changes trying a few new things, and we still took the win, but I was trying to fix a small issue,” said Hajek.
On Tuesday, the number one team in the state came to town and beat the Lady Broncos in three straight games.
Mustang showed that they could hang with the big dogs in the first two games losing Game One 25-19 and Game Two 25-17 with chances to make them better games than that.
“In the first game we played with them, we had some mistakes, but the girls played hard. As the game went on we just started having too many errors,” said Hajek.
But, in Game Three, the Wolves showed why it’s the number one team with a 25-13 clinching victory over the Broncos.
“They came out and gave us a variety of things, and we had a problem adjusting to it,” Hajek said.
Mustang will be back on the court tonight in the Mustang Event Center for Pink Night against Southmoore 6 p.m. and then host the Mustang Tournament this weekend.
