Boyd outscored Chico in the scored portion of the 40-minute session, but Patterson was encouraged by the first outing.

“It was not bad. There were definitely some things that we need to work on,” Patterson said. “As far as knowing where to be, we did OK. A majority of the players were moving their feet.”

The Lady Dragons couldn’t mount many offensive attacks against Boyd.

“Hitting, right now, is our weakest point,” Patterson said. “We’ve got to improve on that.

“Our defense also needs to improve.”

The Lady Dragons open the season at 4 p.m. Tuesday in Paradise.
