Columbus’ little league team will play again this afternoon in the Little League World Series. But now they're in a must-win situation in order to move into the championship weekend at South Williamsport, Pa.
Last night, Columbus lost 7-4 to the team from Hawaii--the second time the teams have faced each other in the LLWS. Last weekend, Columbus' first game was a win over the West region representative.
Because the first-round of play is double-elimination, Columbus would have to lose again to be ousted.
Columbus and Hawaii play today at 2pm. The winner moves into the U.S. championship game Saturday, with the loser going home. Sunday the U.S. and International winning teams face-off for the Little League World Series title.
