Greenville North State advances to U.S. championship game


WILLIAMSPORT, PA (WNCT) – Greenville North State has won its third game in the Little League World Series, advancing the team to the US Championship game.

North State beat Texas with a score of 2-1 in seven innings.

It was the closest game they’ve had in the series and was the only game they have been scored on.

Carson Hardee hit a solo homerun in the second inning to give North State a one nothing lead.

The team from Lufkin, Texas would tie the game in the top of the third after a couple of North State errors.

Pitching dominated this match up as North State’s Chase Anderson and Matthew Matthijs gave up just one hit over seven innings pitched. Matthijs struck out 11 straight Texas batters to end the game.

North State would win it in the bottom of the 7th. With the bases loaded Thomas Barrett grounded to first base, but the throw home wasn’t in time to prevent Cash Daniels-Moye from scoring the winning run.

North State will face the winner of Thursday’s Connecticut vs. Texas game in the US Championship game Saturday afternoon at 3:30.
