With a berth to the Little League World Series on the line, the Pacific Little League 12-year-old All-Stars finally met their match in the regional championship game Saturday in San Bernadino, Calif.
The boys of summer from Edmonds, Lynnwood and Wooodway — who earned a spot in the regional tournament by winning the Washington State Little League Championship — lost to Bend, Ore. by a score of 5-1.
Pacific had defeated the Bend team 8-2 earlier in the week.
The team flies back to Seattle from San Bernadino Sunday, said Michelle Corsi, who served as team photographer during the games. “Sad to end, but the boys had time of their lives,” she said.
