MARGATE – The Little League District 16 championship banner hangs in Margate this year as the 11- 12-year-old Hurricanes won the title on their home field against Linwood, 12-2 in five innings Monday night.

The Margate team stayed undefeated for the season and brought home the title on the arm of 12-year old Billy Kral.

Kral did it on the mound and at the dish as the pitcher hit a two-run bomb over the center field fence to end the game.

This is the first title for Margate since 1980 when now coach T. Gallagher was a player.

According to league director and team manager Yogi Hiltner, next up for the team will be the sectionals in North Vineland starting Saturday, July 14.
