WINTER GARDEN Dr. Phillips Little League won its fourth district championship of the summer July 3 when DPLL's Majors (12-year-old) All-Stars team defeated Winter Garden 11-0 in the District 14 Championship Game.
Teams from Dr. Phillips have also won the District 14 Championships in the 11-year-old, 10-year-old and Tournament of Champions (9-year-old) tournaments.
The game took place at Winter Garden Little League, though the rest of the tournament was held at Dr. Phillips Little League. A summer storm earlier in the day made the field at DPLL unplayable, and thanks to the grounds crew at WGLL the game was able to relocate and be played.
The youngsters from Dr. Phillips jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first inning and never looked back, with stellar pitching and defense to back up their offensive outburst.
In total, the Dr. Phillips All-Stars went 5-0 in the District 14 Tournament. The Winter Garden All-Stars went 3-2, with both losses coming at the hands of Dr. Phillips.
Dr. Phillips advances to the Section 5 Tournament.
