    Despite a strong pitching performance by Michael Chastain, the Washington County 9-10-year-old all-stars fell 5-2 to Campbellsville in the Kentucky Little League District 5 championship game last Tuesday.

    The game started off even through the first two innings as each team held the other scoreless.
