Little League World Series 2010: Pearland, Texas Takes On Waipahu, Hawaii

The final four of the Little League World Series was set on Friday afternoon when Waipahu, Hawaii defeated Columbus, Georgia by a 12-5 score to advance to the United States championship game on Saturday. Hawaii faced a tough task coming out of the losers bracket - they needed to defeat Georgia twice in order to advance - but they were up to the challenge.
