Dillsburg Little League All-Stars hope to bring a state championship to the Midstate.
The 8-10 year old team is one of just eight teams left in the state in the Little League 8/9/10 Pennsylvania State Tournament. Earlier this month, Dillsburg won the Section 7 tournament, advancing the team to states.

Sunday night, the team opened tournament play against Mifflinburg. Despite jumping out to the 4-0 lead in the first inning, some pitching struggles led to the visitors comeback.
When the game was suspended due to lightning, the score was 9-4. Play did resume and Dillsburg fell 9-5.
The tournament, however, is double elimination, so there’s still hope for Dillsburg.
In the consolation bracket, Dillsburg will now face Northern Lebanon on Monday night at 7:00. The tournament is hosted by Newville Little League out of Section 7.
