Toms River East lost earlier in the playoffs to Massapequa, but if they get by Fairfield, they'll have a chance to avenge their earlier loss and with a win move onto the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania.

How exciting for the Toms River kids and their families. Let's rally behind them and send good vibes their way for tonight's game. Regardless of the outcome, the kids from Toms River have made us proud and we hope they had a wonderful time with friends and family in the playoffs, definitely lifetime memories for all.

Thanks to the coaches, league, and parents for putting a great year together for the kids, and a nice summer for Toms River families.

Post your congratulations and well wishes below in the comment section :)
