It has been 25 years since a team from Virginia has played in the Little League World Series and the wait will extend for one more day. The Loudoun South Little League team's first game of the tournament was postponed from Thursday to 10 a.m. on Friday due to weather.
Loudoun South reached the LLWS as the Southeast regional champions and was scheduled to play the New England champions from Rhode Island on Thursday. The game was set for 3 p.m. but lightning in the area delayed the start of the game. With no end to the rain in sight as of 6 p.m., the game was officially postponed.
The rain will mean a busy day on Friday as only one of the games scheduled for Thursday was able to be played. Friday's slate of games now includes seven games starting with Loudon's game at 10 a.m.
The LLWS is a double-elimination tournament. Should Loudoun win Friday's game, they will play their second game Sunday at 11 a.m.. A loss on Friday will mean they will play to remain in the tournament on Saturday at 3 p.m.
