Seminole Little League dominates in District 5 play

Seminole Little League won district titles in major and junior baseball Tuesday to go a 6-for-6 in District 5 tournament action.

In the major championship game, Seminole fell behind 4-0 to Northeast in the first inning before rallying for seven runs in the second to retake command of the game and, ultimately, the district title.

Austin Lamoureux keyed the attack by smashing a two-run home run to put Seminole on the scoreboard in the second inning. Later in the second, Jason Katz blasted a grand slam to put Seminole ahead for good.

Tanner Rice hit a home run in the third, Doug Borgh added to the lead with a three-run home run in the fourth and Kyle Frick­man capped off Seminole's impressive power display with a two-run shot in the fifth. All but one of Seminole's 13 runs came off a home run.

In going 4-0 during the district tournament, Seminole hit 17 home runs. Katz and Rice tied for the Seminole lead with four each.

Ace pitcher Max Wilmer went the distance against Northeast in the championship to take the win.

In the junior baseball district tournament, Seminole scored 52 runs and allowed just one to roll to the district title.

Seminole didn't surrender a run in three games to reach the championship game against Pinellas Park National, which Seminole won 5-1.

Anthony Lamoureux (starter, four innings), Brett Phillips (two innings) and Tylor Craft (one inning) combined to hold Pinellas Park National to a run.

Of the six district tournaments played over the past two weeks in District 5, Seminole emerged victorious in each. Overall, Seminole won district titles in 9-10 baseball, 9-10 softball, 10-11 baseball, major baseball, major softball and junior baseball.

Also in District 5, Cross Bayou automatically advanced to the sectional tournament in 10-11 softball without having to play a district game.
