Forget the Phillies. How about those kids from Ridley?
While the Phillies were losing their fifth straight last night, the young stars from Ridley Area Little League won again, putting them on the brink of a state title.
Ridley's 9-4 win over West Point means they play for the state Little League title tonight in Bradford, Pa. And who might they be facing for the state crown? That would be next-door neighbors Lionville, from Chester County.
