The Lady Dinos opened their doors in style as they welcomed the 3A reigning state champs, Union, for their first home game of the season. The first set did not go the Dinos’ way, however. The Cougars showed their strength and easily took the first set 25-13.
Carbon needed a big response and came through in the second set, 25-17, to tie the match. Union battled back in the third and eventually went ahead 25-19. Needing to win the fourth set to extend the game, Carbon came up short. The Cougars closed out the contest 25-16 in the fourth set for the 3-1 victory.
