Sophomore Ava Thompson scored two goals and junior Leigh-Evan Kitzmiller scored the third goal. Senior Captain Paxton Crews said, “It was a good win for us to have momentum going into district play next week. I’m super proud of our team and our perseverance to the end.” The Lady Mustangs play in their first district home game against Cristo Rey on Saturday, December 11.
