Jamie Costa blasted a kick up the middle, which scored the go-ahead run and lifted top-seeded B. Deep to a 4-2 victory over second-seeded Team Top Sail in the St. Thomas Sport and Social Club Coed Kickball League championship at Joseph Aubain Ballpark on Wednesday.
Both teams cruised through the playoffs and entered the league final with undefeated records.
"The game was decided by two great defenses," league coordinator Joe Trattner said.
Team Top Sail, led by captains Jason Duke and Andrew Hill, grabbed an early lead when it put one run on the scoreboard in the first inning. B. Deep captain Brent Hazzard responded the next inning when he accounted for two runs for his team.
Team Top Sail knotted the score, 2-2, when Jason Duke scored from third off a perfectly-placed bunt. After Costa drove in the winning run, B. Deep was able to add one more run to secure the victory.
League sponsors included Bellows International, Coors Light, Captain Morgan, Betsy's Bar and One Love Charters. The next league to be offered will be a coed dodgeball league, which will start Aug. 7 at Iggie's Beach Bar. For more information, call 626-0109 or go online at www.stthomassportandsocialclub.com.
