Pearl City battled their way to the Hawaii Little League 9 &10 District 7 Championship game behind the arm of Micah Obara who shut out Waialua 10-0 on Tuesday, June 11 at Whitmore Field in Wahiawa.

The 10-run mercy rule was enforced to end the game after three and a half innings of play.

Pearl City will meet Waipio today at 3:00pm in the District 7 Championship.
