Southwest, represented by region winner Midway Little League out of Texas, came from behind Monday to clinch the Little League Softball World Series title with a 5-4 win over Mid-Atlantic, represented by Maryland.

The team fell behind 3-0 to Mid-Atlantic in the opening two frames but rallied with four runs in the fourth inning to take the lead.

Mid-Atlantic tied up the contest in the fifth, and the teams remained knotted 4-4 through the end of the sixth inning.

In a thrilling extra-innings finale, Southwest eked out the victory with a run in the top of the seventh.

Kaitlyn Lowe led Southwest with two RBIs, while pitcher Zaneria Hughes secured seven strikeouts to hold off Mid-Atlantic down the stretch.

“I was very excited for this game,” Huges told ESPN after the final. “When we started it, I knew there was something special with our team and that we were going to make it the whole way.”

The Texas-based squad took home the Little League trophy despite being the youngest team in the tournament.
