WARNER ROBINS, GA -- One run separated Pioneer Little League from keeping its Little League World Series hopes alive.

Falling behind by two runs early, Team Georgia rallied but fell to Virginia 4-3 in the elimination round of the Southeast Softball Regional.

Virginia jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the top of the first on an RBI double from Brieanna Propst. Bridgewater built a 4-1 lead in the fourth inning before Pioneer cut the deficit to one in the bottom half.

Virginia held strong down the stretch and lived to fight another day.
