After a pair of nail-biters, the Lewisville softball team remains alive in the A playoffs.

On Thursday, the Lady Lions made the long road trip to Fox Creek (which is near North Augusta) and upset the top-seeded Predators by a score of 1-0. Lewisville's Kimber Hudson recorded her first no-hitter of the season in the contest.

"We had good pitching and good defense," Lewisville coach Mary Hall said.

The Lady Lions scored the game's only run in the fifth. Chasity McCrorey reached base with a double, moved to third on a passed ball and scored on an errant throw to first.

That sent Lewisville to Whitmire on Saturday, where the team suffered a tough 3-2 loss.

"We scored two runs in the first," Hall said. "The problem is, we didn't score any after that."

Whitmire cut the deficit to 2-1 in the sixth then scored a pair of runs on an error with two out in the seventh for the win.

"It was a heartbreaking way to lose a game," Hall said.

Hudson had another strong outing in the loss, allowing only one hit.

Lewisville hosted Fox Creek in an elimination game yesterday. The winner travels to Whitmire today needing two wins to advance to the upperstate championship bracket.
