SOUTH WILLIAMS-PORT, Pa. (AP) — It may have been the best game at the Little League World Series so far. Greenville, North Carolina, and Lufkin, Texas, played into extra innings on Wednesday in a thriller that ended with 2-1, walkoff Greenville victory.

The two teams will meet again on today, this time with a berth in the championship game on the line. The winner faces the victor of the international championship being played today between Mexico and Japan.

Dominant is an understatement when describing Greenville’s pitching. In three games, the pitching staff has allowed only one hit and one run in 18 innings.

Hard-throwing Matthew Matthijs has led the charge.
