Playing four games in just over 24 hours was tiring for the Mustangs, but the players were determined and worked hard.

The Mustangs have several new players, including four international students who have never played. Kenzie Kesstler, Melissa Hunt and Ana Perez were solid in goal for the Mustangs.
