SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- The championship game of the Little League World Series has been moved back three hours to noon Sunday with Hurricane Irene expected to hit Pennsylvania.

Little League officials say the consolation game, which had been scheduled for 11 a.m. Sunday, has been canceled and won't be played.

Officials say they will evaluate conditions leading up to the game and that they could postpone the game until Monday if conditions aren't suitable.

The winner of the two games on Saturday will face off in the championship. Japan faces Mexico in the international final and Huntington Beach, Calif., faces Billings, Mont., in the U.S. final.
