GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — We are through the first two days of the Little League Softball World Series and several teams are making a strong case as potentially having the best overall squad.

Every team has now played at least once with teams that did not see action in Tuesday’s opening day playing on Wednesday. Thursday is elimination day as the first losers’ bracket games are played in the double-elimination format.

Pitt County, which dropped a 9-2 decision to West champion La Verne, Calif., on Tuesday, bounced back Thursday with an 8-0 victory over the Latin America champion, Guayama, Puerto Rico. The win keeps Pitt County’s season going.

Now they play the West champion again Friday at 10 a.m. with the winner advancing and the loser seeing their season end.

Ava Coward got the win for Pitt County on the mound, giving up just four hits with 11 strikeouts and no walks. Pitt County got two runs in the first inning and two more in the third before blowing the game open with three in the fifth.
