It didn't take long for Camden Fairview Head Softball Coach Kendra Center and her team to pick up its first win of the 2018 season. After losing in a high-scoring game against El Dorado last week, 11-9, the Lady Cardinals bested the Magnolia Lady Panthers, 7-5.

Lady Cardinal Lexi Betts finished with 10 strike-outs as Makenna Smith - who already has a home-run on the season - and Grace Kelley both went 3/4 from the plate

"We had several errors, but I was proud of the heart we showed," Centers said about her team.

"It was an all-around team win."

It was the first loss on the season for the Panthers who were 3-0 and had the home-diamond advantage on Tuesday evening. Magnolia led 3-2 before the Lady Cardinals put up a 5-run inning in the fourth.

Julia Milner, Madison Thurman, Anna Dawson, Betts, and Smith scored runs for C.F. and Kelley scored two. Smith continued a hot hitting streak by hitting a double. Avery Cook and Bailey Carmody were also able to come up with hits in the contest.
