In this year’s “Run for the Rings,” two Plant City Dolphins teams crossed the finish line ahead of their counterparts.
The Dolphins’ 6U and 15U All-Star teams won their divisions on Dec. 8, the final day of play in the 2017 United YFL Football Championships at Ellis-Methvin Park. The 6U Dolphins did it with a 14-7 overtime win against the Maryland-based DMV Knights and the 15U All-Stars, a group comprised of players from around the Tri-County Youth Football and Cheerleading Conference, pulled out an 8-6 win over Buffalo, New York’s Hill Butler Giants.
Plant City’s 14U All-Stars team also made it to the championship final but lost to the Maryland Seahawks, 33-16.
