Set two saw Los Fresnos took control early and did not look back as the Lady Falcons were able to hold off Edinburg to win set two 25-19.

Up 2-0, Los Frenos was able to take control once again and thanks to a late attack on defense by the Lady Falcons, Los Fresnos cemented the win 25-21.

With the Sweep, the Lady Falcons advanced to the Area Round where they await San Antonio Harlan.
