(KTRE) -

It was only round two of the district 10 tournament in Little League action  but the atmosphere felt like a championship game.

Lufkin Little League is the defending U.S. champions at the Little League World Series. Pineywoods was a team that many thought to be the strongest team out of the district.

Things did not start off well for Lufkin. 

Dakayln Johnson hit a grand slam homerun in the first inning. A solo homerun would follow that, and Pineywoods took a 10-0 lead out of their part of the first inning. 

Due to some wild pitches, Lufkin would answer back with four runs. Ultimately the first inning decided the game, as Pineywoods won 14-6.

Lufkin will now play Rose Capitol West in an elimination game on Thursday at Morris Frank Park.

Winner of that game will have to play Pineywoods on Saturday.
