LOWER SUSSEX, Del. — The Southwest regional champion Vidalia Girls Little League All-Stars had their toughest test of the 2015 Senior League Softball World Series Thursday afternoon as they were no-hit by the East region champions from Pennsylvania and fell 6-0.

“It was tough, but I’m still proud of the team,” Vidalia head coach Wesley McCarver said. “We played four games against four awesome teams. There were times where we played really good ball, and times where we didn’t.”

Elizabeth Smith pitched 7 innings for Vidalia, and allowed four hits and struck out six batters. McCarver said what did Vidalia in was the four errors they committed.

“They had some good hitters on their team and that went along with the four errors we had,” he said. “But it is over now and I’m proud of what we did.”

Vidalia finished pool play at 1-3 and will play in a consolation game Friday, but McCarver said the trip was a success.

“Our goal was to make it to the World Series and we made that goal,” he said. “Our goal now is to come up here and win it. The experience is like no other.”

Pennsylvania jumped out to an early lead in the game scoring a run in the second and two runs in the third, and eventually iced the game with a run in the fourth inning and two in the sixth.

“It was a great effort by all the girls and they kept positive attitudes the whole time,” McCarver said.
