The Carson Valley 11-12-year-old Little League All-Star team put together a solid 9-3 win over perennial powerhouse Washoe Little League Friday night at Governor’s Field in Carson City.

The win, which came on the heels of a loss to South Tahoe Wednesday night, pushed Carson Valley into the elimination bracket semifinals. They will take on Reno American today (Saturday) at 5:30 p.m. at Governor’s Field in Carson City.

To capture the tournament title, they’d still need to win four more games. But with Washoe eliminated, the playing field is wide open heading down the stretch.

Also for Carson Valley, after a strong run through their bracket, the Carson Valley 9-10-year-olds saw their tournament end with a 9-3 loss to Reno American in the consolation bracket Wednesday night.
