SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (HawaiiNewsNow) - One more win!

That's all it'll take for the Waipio Little League team to make it back to the World Series.

This after trouncing Arizona in the semi-finals Friday. Already up 11-2 with the bases juiced, Waipio's Kahoea Akau stood in the batter's box, with war paint drenched all over his face and took a pitch to his elbow.

This scored Keolu Ramos and the 10-run rule took effect. Waipio wins went on to the 12-2 win in four innings.

They now move on to the West Region final against Southern California on Sunday. It starts at 2 p.m. and will be shown on ESPN2.

The winner advances to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

Meanwhile, the newly crowned Bronco World Series champs from Ewa return home Saturday, 11:55 a.m. on Hawaiian Airlines flight 43 from San Jose.
