The all-star team from the Chula Vista-based Park View Little League fell by a score of 5-1 to its counterpart from the Johnston Little League of Johnston, Iowa, Friday at the Little League World Series.

The loss means Park View, which had won 11 consecutive games since losing its opener in the Southern California South Subregional July 23, will play Saturday against the loser of tonight’s match between teams representing the Southwest and Great Lakes.

The loser Saturday would be relegated to the consolation bracket, ineligible to win the Little League World Series.

Park View is the 12th team from San Diego County to reach the Little League World Series and fourth from the South Bay in eight years. It won the 2009 Little League World Series.
