Falls City and Auburn visited the Nebraska City gym to take on the Pioneer volleyball team on Thursday, Sept. 13.
Auburn ended up besting both the Tigers and the Pioneers to claim the triangular win.
Nebraska City got off to a good start by winning the first set of the night's opening match against Falls City, 25-14. Close second and third set losses, however, handed the final result to the Tigers.
After Auburn's triumph over Falls City in the second match, Nebraska City matched up with the Bulldogs in the final match of the evening.
Nebraska City hung close with Auburn through most of the action in both sets, but it was the visitors who were able to score the critical points on the way to a two-set sweep.
The Pioneers will return to action on Sept. 18 at Waverly and then travel to the four-team Arlington Invite on Sept. 22, before coming home for a match against Elkhorn on Sept. 25.
