Pearland headed to Williamsport for the Little League World Series.

Pearland won 9-4 against Tulsa National.

Pearland trailed by one run, following the end of the first and outscored Tulsa 5-0 the rest of the way.

“It’s unbelievable, these boys have worked so hard and this has been a dream for them for a long time and to see them achieve that and see them celebrate it’s been amazing,” said head coach Aaron Cummings.

On Thursday, Killen’s BBQ is hosting a fundraising event to help the team raise money for the Little League World Series. The event will be from 5 p.m. - 8 p.m. Half of the proceeds will go to the team.
