The Lady Mustangs lost to Loudoun after leading for much of the game. With six minutes of play remaining, and the Mustangs in the lead by two, Loudoun rallied to tie and then took the lead in the final 30 seconds of the game.

At the Mustangs’ Senior Night home game against Briar Woods, the Mustangs struggled to tally beyond six goals, due to numerous shots being stopped by the formidable Briar Woods goalie.
