Hollidaysburg beats Delaware, 7-3, advances to Little League World Series

BRISTOL, Conn. — Hollidaysburg is headed to Williamsport.

The local Little League team punched its ticket Friday by defeating Delaware, 7-3, in the Mid-Atlantic Regional final at the Bart Giamiatti Complex.

The championship was the fourth straight tournament title – sectional, district, the state tourney and the regional – for Hollidaysburg, which will begin play at Williamsport on Thursday night.

It marks the first time a Hollidaysburg or any Blair County team has played in the Little League World Series.

Caleb Detrick sparked the offense by going 4-for-4 with four RBIs, including a two-run double in the second inning and a solo home run in the sixth that upped the Hollidaysburg lead to 7-3.

Ty McGough was the winning pitcher, going the last four innings and striking out six.
