PORTLAND, Ore. — Officials at the Little League Softball World Series required teams from Washington and Iowa to play a tie-breaker game Tuesday after receiving reports that some teams “did not play with the effort and spirit appropriate” for Little League play.

The dispute arose after the Snohomish, Washington, team was no-hit Monday by a team from Salisbury, North Carolina.

The loss created a three-way tie for the Pool B title, meaning that Washington and North Carolina would advance to the semifinals and the Polk City, Iowa, team would not.

Chris Chadd, the president of the Central Iowa Little League, told the Des Moines Register that the Washington team basically “threw the game.” He says he thinks Washington was trying to avoid a rematch with Iowa in the semifinals.
