East (West Cumberland LL) overcame a 5 inning no-hitter pitched by Asia Pacific (Bacalod LL, Phillipines) Friday night to take one of the positions in the final Championship game Saturday afternoon in the Senior Softball World Series.

Deseree Rivera drew a walk to open the bottom of the 6th inning, and Kylie Kristovich sacrificed Nichole Larro, a pinch runner, to second. Three pitches later, Arielle Bruno smashed a line drive to the fence scoring Larro for what turned out to be the winning run.

Earlier, Latin America (ASOFEM LL, Puerto Rico) rolled over USA Central (Indiana District 11, South Bend) in a slugfest that was surprisingly close. Central got 2 runs early, on an Ashleigh Bousquet walk, followed by a 2 out single from Amanda Chamblee. Santana Bozman drove Chamblee in and Central was up 2-0 in the first inning.

Latin America finally added a run in the 3rd, then jumped out to a 5-2 lead in the fifth on a series of walks and singles capped off by a double from Kiara Nazario that scored 3 runs.

Alex Bousquet led off the bottom of the fifth with a triple, and scored on an infield out by Kayley Brewer, but that was where Central’s scoring ended – the powerful Central team was shut down by Latin America’s Annette Cruz who allowed 10 hits, but only 4 runs.

The final is set – Latin America vs USA East. 4 PM Eastern on ESPN 2.
