Maybe Dresden was enjoying the beautiful, cool weather and sunshine.
Whatever the case, the Lady Lions stayed out a little longer and gave a little bit of extra effort in Game 1 of a doubleheader on a beautiful Tuesday afternoon.
In that game, it took the Lady Lions six innings to claim a triumph — a 6-5 victory over West Carroll.
In high school softball, each game of a doubleheader is regulated to go five innings.
WC got a measure of revenge in the second game with a 3-1 triumph.
Dresden also played on Monday afternoon.
The Lady Lions dropped a 5-4 heartbreaker to Union City.
The Lady Lions host Gleason this afternoon.
Other prep softball action this week had Westview twice victorious — 6-5 over Milan on Tuesday and 10-6 against Camden on Monday.
Westview (7-1) returns to action this afternoon at Gibson County.
Dresden 6-1, WC 5-3
Abigail Lockhart was a perfect 4-for-4 with two doubles, three runs scored and an RBI in the opening game triumph over WC.
Also, Amy Reddick hit safely in all three of her plate appearances and scored twice.
Allie Phillips also scored one run for the Lady Lions.
In the second game, Jesica Parsley and Reddick each had one of Dresden’s two hits.
Westview 6, Milan 5
The Lady Chargers’ 6-2 advantage after two innings held up as Milan only mustered a run in the third and another pair of tallies in the fifth.
Shaylon Robb went the distance on the mound. She struck out a dozen and allowed just five hits.
None of the runs charged to Robb were earned as W’view was guilty of three errors.
Offensively, Alex Hug-hey had two RBI, while Kayla Guthrie, Holly Morris, Robb and Hannah Emberton each had one ribbie.
Guthrie and Morris both scored on two occasions.
UC 5, Dresden 4
The Lady Lions rallied for two runs in the final frame, but came up a score short of tying the contest.
Lockhart doubled and drove two in.
Kristen Childress tripled and scored twice for the Lady Lions, while Allie Phillips also smacked a two-bagger and Jesse Jones came across the pay station once.
Westview 10, Camden 6
Down 2-0 after an inning, the Lady Chargers battled back with three runs in the third, one in the fourth and sixth in the fifth to break open Monday afternoon’s contest at the Lady Lions’ den.
Guthrie carried the biggest stick for Westview with a 3-for-4 outing — a three-run home run and two singles included.
Morris doubled for the Lady Chargers as did Robb.
Additionally, Mary Kate Mesimer drove in a pair, while Morris, Hughey, Hailey Coleman and Emberton each chased one run across the pay station.
On the mound, Meagan Prince logged five innings and struck out two to claim the mound
