GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — The Little League Softball World Series saw the season end for four of the teams in the tournament. Pitt County wasn’t one of them.

The Southeast Regional champs scored all of its runs in the first three innings then held on thanks in large part to a solid pitching outing from Monica Jones. That resulted in a 4-2 win over Bacolod City, Philippines, the Asia-Pacific Region champs, in Tuesday’s last game played at Stalling Stadium at Elm Street Park.

The win will be short-lived as Pitt County must face the Central Regional champs, Austintown, Ohio, on Wednesday at 1 p.m. The winner keeps their season going while the loser will see their season come to an end.
