The season-opener pitting Dresden against Westview was a rollercoaster ride to say the least.
The two county rivals traded back-and-forth scores with neither team ever holding a comfortable advantage.
In the end, the Lions hit their peak at the right time and escaped with a hard-fought 28-21 triumph.
Dresden sophomore defensive back Divers Lockhart came up big with a pair of broken up passes batted down during the fourth quarter. Meanwhile, Lion senior Seth Farris – who just made the move to the defensive line – recorded a huge sack to stifle the Chargers’ final drive. Farris also had an additional tackle for a loss during the final period of play.
