Henessey Soto battled Vittoria Adams for six innings, but an Adams throwing error in the seventh inning opened the door just enough for Northside Suburban Little League from San Antonio, Texas, to post the eventual winning runs in a 3-1 win over Haverstraw, N.Y., Little League in the Senior League Softball World Series Championship game played Saturday at Bruce Layton Field on Lower Sussex, Del.

With the game tied 1-1 in the top of the seventh and final inning of regulation, Britney Ramos singled to left field to start the inning. After a sacrifice bunt moved Ramos to second base, a Gabby Winkler tapper back to Adams was fielded cleanly, but the pitcher’s throw was wide of first base, allowing Winkler to reach safely and pinch-runner Felicia Sanchez to score the go-ahead run.

Winkler came home with her team’s third run of the game on an RBI single to left by Ryler Moreno.

Soto scattered four hits and struck out nine for the mound win, while Adams was touched for eight hits.

Haverstraw Little League, the East Region Champions, broke a scoreless deadlock through three innings with a fourth-inning tally. Taylor Corretjer lined a one-out double to left field and came around to score on a base hit from Brianna Rivera.

Adams kept Northside Suburban Little League in check until the top of the fifth inning. After the Southwest Region Champions put runners in scoring position, the East’s defense managed to cut down a runner at the plate.

Undaunted, Northside Suburban Little League, would forge a 1-1 tie later in the inning as Winkler singled to left field, scoring Sanchez from third base.

Northside Suburban Little League, finished the World Series with a 6-0 record, and won the World Series in the league’s first appearance. Haverstraw Little League finished the World Series with a 4-2 record.
