HEIDELBERG, Germany — All-Europe returnee Megan Perry went the distance in both games Saturday as the Heidelberg Lady Lions swept Patch 8-3 and 13-9 in a nonconference high school softball doubleheader that opened the season for both teams.

Perry gave up an uncharacteristic seven hits in each game, but prevailed in part because Heidelberg drew 10 walks in each game.

Alissa Dawson went 2-for-2 in the opener for Heidelberg, which got a two-run homer from Dana Kaita and two hits each by Sally Rush, Kawena Kamanao and Cassandra Pope in the second game.

Patch’s Meredith Beatty was 2-for-2 in the opener and 4-for-4 in the second game.

Michelle Hughes, who pitched the second game, was 2-for-2 for Patch in the opener.
