Shane Anderson's three-run home run highlighted a four-run first inning rally, helping to spark his M.O.T. Little League all-star team past Canal Little League, 13-3 in four innings, in the Delaware state championship game at Camden-Wyoming Little League's complex.

The win -- M.O.T.'s second in as many games against Canal in the state tournament -- advanced the District 1 winners to the Mid-Atlantic Region tournament in Bristol, Connecticut. M.O.T. became the first league in the fifty-plus year history of the Delaware state tournament to win three consecutive state championships.

"The boys deserve all the credit," said M.O.T. manager Ken Anderson. "They're a great group of kids with great attitudes."

M.O.T. pounded out twelve hits in the championship game, and iced the win with a seven run rally in the second inning. Anderson had two hits and added another RBI later in the contest, while Josh Silvestri and Bryan Machamer each added a pair of hits and a run batted in. Silvestri struck out eight and scattered five hits in the title-clinching win.

M.O.T. had edged Canal, 4-2, in an earlier meeting. Canal opened state tournament play with an 11-4 win over Nanticoke, and defeated the same team again later in the tournament to earn a rematch with M.O.T.

"It was a tough one, but we're real proud of our guys," said Canal manager Eric Frost after the championship game. "They worked hard and hey battled all the way here. This M.O.T. team was a tough team but I'm very proud of our kids."

Matt Frost doubled twice and scored two runs for Canal in the championship game.

M.O.T., which was appearing in its eighth consecutive state tournament, advanced to the semifinal round of the region tournament before falling, 7-1, to eventual region champion and U.S. semifinalist South Shore National Little League (Staten Island, New York).
