WILLIAMSPORT, PA - “Elizabeth is proud of you!” were the words from Coach Labrador to his team as the Elmora Troopers end their season by losing to Louisiana 4-1 on Aug. 21, and bring to an end their journey in the Little League World Series.
It was early trouble for the Troopers in the bottom of the first inning when Louisiana scored a run and the Troopers got in each other's way allowing the other team to score. The score remained 1-0 until the bottom of the third inning when Louisiana took control scoring three more runs, bringing the score to 4-0.
In the top of the fourth, the Troopers had hits but were tagged out in a double play. Unfortunately, by the top the sixth inning the Troopers could not catch a break and did score one run, which was insufficient to surpass the Louisiana team.
The team will now head home as real “Hero’s” to the fans in the city of Elizabeth and state of New Jersey.
