WALDOBORO — As fate would have it, the Waldoboro Adult Coed Softball League championship game on Sunday afternoon, Oct. 2 included a surprise team against a not-surprising opponent at Medomak Valley High School.

No. 1 Brooks Trap Mill, a loaded and highly-talented squad which had one loss the entire fall campaign, faced upstart No. 8 Walter J. Read Carpentry, which emerged from the weekend fray, to play for all the diamond marbles on Sunday.

In the end, with temperatures in the low-50s, the higher-seed had too much power — home run power that is — en route to the title with a 11-3 victory.

It all came down to one weekend worth of games to determine who would swing, pitch, catch and run away with the popular Waldoboro Recreation Department-sponsored league title.

The champions, unbeaten in the playoffs, got home runs from Ashley Geel and Bill Robinson Jr., as well as strong pitching and solid defense en route to the title.

Brooks Trap Mill finished 17-1, including 4-0 in playoffs. WJR was 7-7 in the regular season before it made its stellar postseason run. It finished 5-2 in the playoffs and 12-9 overall.

Brooks Trap Mill also beat WJR earlier in the playoffs.
