CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WNCT) — Greenville’s 10-12 year-old Little League Baseball team is one win away from taking the North Carolina state title and advancing to the Southeast Regional.
Tar Heel scored three runs in the bottom of the eighth inning to beat Lake Norman 11-10 in Tuesday’s winners’ bracket final. Tar Heel will play again Thursday at 7 p.m. in the title game and will face the team that emerges from the losers’ bracket, either Wilson City, Winston-Salem National or Lake Norman.
Tar Heel only has to win once against the losers’ bracket final team to win the state title and advance to the Southeast Regional in Warner Robbins, Ga. on Aug. 6-11.
Tar Heel opened the tournament with an 11-1 win over Henderson County last Saturday. The team followed that up with a 1-0 win over Wilson City on Sunday.
The winner of the Southeast Regional advances to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa.
