TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) Sunnyside 13 and 14 year old softball defeated Fontana, California, 13-3 to advance to the Little League Junior Softball World Series in Kirkland, Washington.
The girls, coached by Manny Tapia, actually lost to Fontana earlier in the day, setting up a winner-take-all in the nightcap. The second game was shortened to six innings due to the ten run mercy rule.
Eight of the players on Sunnyside's team won the Little League Major Softball World Series Title last year.
Their first game will be Sunday at 2:30 against a team from Pennsylvania.
