GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — Pitt County stayed alive in the Little League Softball World Series with a 6-1 victory over La Verne, Calif. in Friday’s first game of the day at Elm Street Park.

Pitt County and the West champions were scheduled to be the first game on Friday, playing at 10 a.m. However, consistent rain that fell throughout the morning pushed the game start to 1:30.

When the field was prepped and ready to go, so was Pitt County. After a scoreless first two innings, Pitt County broke through with four runs and never looked back.

The win avenged Pitt County’s 9-2 loss on Tuesday against the West team on the first day of the tournament.

Ava Coward came through on the mound for Pitt County, giving up one run on five hits with four strikeouts and one walk. Michelle Jenkins had two hits to lead Pitt County.

Only one other game was completed Friday because of the rain. The New England champs won 8-2 over the Central champs. The other two games slated for Friday will be played Saturday morning.

The rest of the games will follow as the day’s schedule has been updated to reflect the 3-hour rain delay. You can watch the games in person at Elm Street Park or on ESPN+. Admission is free to attend in person.
