WILLIAMSPORT, LYCOMING COUNTY - It's a do or die match-up Thursday for Pennsylvania's little league team, as they need the win to advance to the championship.

The little league pitcher who’s captured the attention of the world was back on the mound Wednesday night.

13-year-old Mo’ne Davis allowed three pivotal runs early on.
In the 3rd inning her coach pulled her from the mound hoping to save her arm for the next game.

But the Philadelphia Taney Dragons never made up the difference.

The final score of the game against the team from Nevada was 8-1.

The Las Vegas team now advances to the USA championship on Saturday.

The Philadelphia Taney Dragons will have to play the Chicago, Illinois team Thursday night to advance to the USA championship game.

The winner of the Pennsylvania-Illinois game will decide who will join Vegas in the final.
