THOMASTON — The town’s recreation department’s Adult Coed Kickball League crowned its inaugural champion among a crowd of family, fans, friends and fellow players in a finale played under the lights on Thursday night, Aug. 12 at the Thomaston Little League field.

The championship game saw Trash Masters clean house with an tight, highly-competitive 8-7 win over Kickin’ It Old School to win the trophy.

The league featured five teams this year and a four-game regular season which began July 15. The hope is the league will continue to expand next summer with more teams, fields and fun.

The recreation department put on a barbecue during the single-elimination playoffs on Thursday with music playing through the speakers to amplify the fun. Games were played on Thursday nights this summer.

“The main objective when we first decided to put this league together was to give people an opportunity to come out and have some competitive fun,” said league organizer Jared Porter. “From the overwhelming reaction we received throughout the season, it was clear to me that fun is exactly what we had. Given the success that we had for our first season, we look forward to adding more teams next year and continuing to grow this league.”
