Waipio Wins World Series

Waipio not only won the Little League World Series yesterday with a 12-3 drubbing of Matamoros, Mexico; the local youngsters did it in record-setting style.

The victory was the largest margin by a U.S. team over an International opponent in the history of the championship game. Waipio is also only the second team in Little League history to score in every inning of the title match. The first team to do it was Taiwan in 1974.

It is the second time in four years a Hawaii team won the biggest title in youth sports, with teams from Georgia winning the other two in that title stretch.
