Universal Team Determined to Avoid Elimination from World Series

CORPUS CHRISTI - It's day 2 of the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania. The Universal All Stars, representing the U.S. Southwest Division, are not playing today as they await their second game in the double-elimination tournament.

The first team to represent Corpus Christi is coming off a tough loss to a team from Washington state yesterday. The Northwest team came out on top with an 8-4 win.

The Universal team will practice this afternoon at 2 p.m. The coach tells us the most important thing for him is that the players get some time with their families who traveled with the team.

They'll face a team from Nashville, Tennessee representing the U.S. Southeastern Division.

We'll have more from Williamsport on the team's afternoon practice and how they're handling yesterday's loss.

If Universal is victorious in Saturday's game, they'll move on to a third game Monday against another U.S. team. That matchup will be decided by games this afternoon.
