Billings Heights Little League Will Play Bothell, WA In Must Win Game
After surviving elimination last night with a 20-0 win over Wyoming, the Billings Heights All-Stars are back in action tonight (Wednesday 8/7) at 5pm Mountain time in the Little League Baseball Northwest Regional.
Billings Heights dropped into the loser bracket after falling to Oregon 8-7 on Monday night and now must win their final three games in San Bernardino to make it to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.
That challenge begins with tonight's game against Bothell, Washington. If they win, Billings Heights will play on Friday (8/9) at 11am Mountain time against the winner of Idaho and Oregon. The Northeast Region championship game is set for Saturday (8/10) at 11am Mountain time.
The last year a team from Montana played at the Little League World Series in Williamsport was 2011 when Big Sky Little League from Billings made it to the U.S. Championship game before losing to Huntington Beach, CA.
