Rockland — The top-ranked and two-time defending champion Knox County Benchwarmers encountered a more than legitimate threat to their Rockland Adult Dodgeball League supremacy on Wednesday night, April 11 at the Flanagan Community Center as they battled second-seeded ABI Masonry in the championship round.

But instead of a three-peat for the Benchwarmers, it was ABI Masonry which went undefeated in the evening-long tournament and built a championship of its own by night’s end.

Watch video below.

ABI Masonry went 4-0 in the one-night tournament and knocked out the defending champions in the finals en route to their first league crown.

Team members for the newly-crowned champions include Gunnar Cummings, Daniel Stone, Steven Widdecombe, Andrew Bonarrigo, Stefan Nicholls and Donald Prescott.

Matches in the Penobscot Bay YMCA/Rock Harbor YMCA program were a best-of-three format.

Participants in the league often dress up with interesting shirts, shorts, costumes and, in some cases, even masks.

The regular-season standings included: Benchwarmers 23-5, ABI Masonry 22-6, Time Bombs 20-8, The Yachtsmen 19-9, Snoop Dodgy Dodge 17-11, Trash Masters 14-14, Hard Knox 14-14, The Majestic Ponies 10-18, Disaster 6-22, The Offenders 6-22 and Hurricane Island 3-25.
