TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Sunnyside Juniors Softball team scored twice in the bottom of the 7th Thursday night for a walkoff 3-2 win over Anchorage Alaska at Arthur Pack Park.

The win put Sunnyside in the West Regional Championship game Friday night where they would have to be beaten twice to be denied a second straight trip to a Little League World Series.

Alaska (2-1) scored both of their runs early to take the advantage at the outset, but Yannira Acuna found her groove in the circle after that allowing her team to rally for the win.

Sunnyside is 3-0 at the regional and 8-0 in the post season. They will await the winner of the Thursday's Elimination Final between Anchorage and Fontana (CA) at 6:30 p.m..

Fontana eliminated Missoula (MT) Thursday night 17-7.

Sunnyside won the World Series championship last summer in the Little League Majors Division. Seven girls from that squad play on this current Juniors team which is the next step up in the Little League chain.
