The Maine side scored all seven on its runs in the fourth and fifth innings on way to narrowly advancing to the championship game on Saturday.  South Portland put across a four run fourth inning after trailing the Goffstown side by three runs entering the frame.  New Hampshire would retake the lead in the bottom of the inning before the Maine representative added three more insurance runs.

Nathan Hobbs got the win for South Portland with five innings pitched from the hill and Richie Gilboy closed things out in the sixth inning.  Matthew Fogg hit a big three-run homer in the fourth to tie up the contest at the time, while batting out of the ninth spot in the order.

South Portland will now play the team out of Fairfield, Connecticut, who the team lost to in their second game of the tournament by a score of 8-0.  The title game will take place at 1 p.m. on Saturday and will be televised on ESPN.  The winner will be the New England representative in the Little League World Series from Williamsport.
