Erik Boal NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Even though there was nothing more at stake than pride and bragging rights, the Foothill-Tujunga Little League Junior Softball All-Stars made sure that there was still plenty of drama for an exhibition game in late August. Trailing the entire contest, the 13- and 14-year-olds staged a comeback in the bottom of the sixth inning against Bacolod City, Philippines, capped by Lynnsey Woodward's game-winning single down the right-field line.

Jeff Smith NORTHEAST GLENDALE -- Nearly a month ago, the Foothill-Tujunga Major Softball All-Star team ended its season with two heartbreaking one-run defeats in the opening rounds of the Division 3 tournament in San Diego. Since then, the team hasn't held a practice and Coach Jim McGivney said that his daughter, Jenna, the team's catcher, hasn't even picked up a bat or a glove. But there the team was Saturday morning, dressed in full uniform and back on the diamond to play one more game.

Erik Boal JEFFERSONTOWN, Ky. -- They had accumulated enough donuts in the scoring column to open their own Krispy Kreme store. But as the Glendale Senior Softball All-Stars learned Tuesday at the 27th annual Little League World Series, when you possess the combination of pitching and defense that they do, it isn't how you score, but when, that counts. Backed by another superb pitching effort from Meghann Muirhead and another clutch hit from Michelle Summers, Glendale willed its way to a 1-0 victory in eight innings against Asia-Pacific champion Bacolod City, Philippines, in another thrilling pool-play game at Skyview Park.

Erik Boal GLENDALE -- For the second straight summer, Little League softball will match the best of the Far East with one of the perennial powers from the Western U.S., and Scholl Canyon Park will be the site. In an effort to again showcase their skills to the affluent Filipino community in Glendale, the representatives from Bacolod City, Philippines will meet the Foothill-Tujunga All-Stars in a pair of exhibition games, beginning today at 9 a.m. The Foothill-Tujunga 11- and 12-year-old Major Softball All-Star team -- which advanced to the Division 3 Tournament for the fourth straight year -- will try and match its talents against a team which took fourth at the Little League World Series in Portland, Ore. Bacolod City won its first two games at the six-day, eight-team tournament, but lost its final three games by a 33-3 margin.

Erik Boal JEFFERSONTOWN, Ky. -- After winning three tournaments, 12 of 13 games and traveling to two states and four different cities in less than a month, it has all come down to this for the Glendale Senior Softball All-Star team. The 15- and 16-year-olds will represent the Western U.S. in the championship game of the Little League World Series at 11 a.m. PST at Skyview Park in Jeffersontown, Ky., against Gladstone, Mich -- a 3-0 winner over Bacolod City, Philippines, on Friday.

Erik Boal JEFFERSONTOWN, Ky. -- Although it was only a winner's-bracket semifinal contest and just their second of what could be four or five games in the Little League World Series, the Glendale Senior Softball All-Stars understood the importance of Tuesday night's game. Facing Bacolod City of the Philippines, considered as one of the favorites to win the nine-team tournament, Glendale shook off some first-inning nerves and took command the rest of the way at Skyview Park.

Hamlet Nalbandyan SCHOLL CANYON PARK -- The spirit of the Little League Baseball World Series in Williamsport, Pa., or the Softball Series in Kirkland, Wash., came to Scholl Canyon Park in Glendale. Foothill-Tujunga's 13- and 14-year-old junior all-stars hosted the Philippine National team in an exhibition of goodwill and good times. For seven innings, the two teams with little in common outside of softball battled each other back and forth. After the game, the teams sat together as friends and enjoyed a potluck lunch provided by friends, families, and the host families of the team from Bacolod City.

Erik Boal JEFFERSONTOWN, Ky. - Unlike the Little League Major Baseball World Series, or the Major Softball and Big League Softball championship games, the Glendale Senior Softball All-Star team won't get to enjoy the thrill of having Saturday's title contest broadcast by ESPN or ESPN2. But thanks to the persistence of Foothill Little League president Dave Evans, the 15- and 16-year-olds will have Saturday's 11 a.m. PST championship game broadcast on Charter Communications channel 25 via an audio feed only.

As Dave Miller said Tuesday, Meghann Muirhead has matured from an incoming sophomore to a senior in the span of two weeks. And as Dave Stauffer said just minutes later, Michelle Summers continues to play at a level that is a few years older than she actually is. With seven returning players from last year's Little League World Series championship team, the Glendale Senior Softball co-coaches probably thought that...

Erik Boal The teams waited almost a year for the rubber match in their series and they ended up producing a third game that was better than the first two combined. Glendale and Gladstone, Mich. -- the top two squads in the Senior Softball division last summer -- opened the 27th annual Little League World Series at Skyview Park in epic fashion, turning in a combined performance that established a benchmark for the rest of the 15-and 16-year-old teams to try and measure up to. But after three hours and 20 minutes, U.S. Central representative Gladstone was able to outlast the U.S. West entry and defending world champion, 1-0, in 17 innings Monday, earning a hard-fought measure of revenge after being defeated in the if-necessary title game of last year's tournament.
