Fresh off winning the regional title, Westport is in Williamsport, Pennsylvania for the Little League World Series and hoping to win their second game there.

Mack Muller can't help but feel a little bit jealous. But that didn't stop the 14-year-old former Little Leaguer from buying a t-shirt Friday in support of his 12-year-old buddies.

It was a thrilling 3-2 win for Westport on Thursday. If there were opening night jitters, they didn't show as the Connecticut kids pulled out a come from behind victory.

As a team, the Westport all stars are a perfect 19-0. Back in Westport, excitement continues to build.

To win it all, Westport must still win four more games. But no matter how it turns out, there will be a celebration in town.

This is the first time Westport is representing Connecticut in the championship, only California has won more titles.

Dave Lapping who coaches younger kids in the league says Westport's strength is that it has two star pitchers, Chad Knight and Harry Azadian.

The boys will play again on Sunday at 2 p.m. on Channel 7, in their quest for the title.
