Pacific Little League softball team keeps winning in state tournament

Updated with Wednesday’s results.

The Pacific Little League Softball all star team continued its winning ways at the state Little League tournament, defeating Seattle Central 6-0 in six innings Wednesday night. The victory came after the team beat East County 20-1 Tuesday night in a game that ended after three innings.

Pacific qualified for the state Little League tournament in Des Moines after winning the All Star District Tournament at Phil Johnson Ballfields in Everett in late June. The goal, said manager George Marsh, is to play in the state championship Friday night, where a victory would send Pacific to the Little League softball regionals in San Bernardino, California.

The road to the championship game isn’t an easy one. Because Pacific lost its first-round game to Issaquah, 5-1, the team is in a “win or go home situation” every night, Marsh said. One loss, and the season is over.

The team next plays Magnolia Little League at 5 p.m. Thursday for the right to appear in the Friday championship.

Pacific Little League includes players from Edmonds and Lynnwood.
