The season, which started in May, saw a record eight teams vying for the legendary Cape Cod Kickball trophy. They included the league's only dynasty, three-time champion Cape Cod Cowboys, as well as returning champ Papa Jake's. With six wins and one tie, Got the Runs, captained by Amanda Medwar, took home top honors during the regular season. They were followed by John Neill Painting which finished with six wins and one loss. 

John Neill Painting's run to the championship started with a 17-3 drubbing of the Cape Cod Cowboys in the first round of the playoffs. They then dethroned Papa Jake's, 9-3, before taking home the championship this week.

Tuesday's game saw John Neill Painting ahead throughout, though Got the Runs kept it close. Holding a 4-2 lead in the sixth, John Neill Painting exploded for four runs when Brian Jensen kicked a grand slam knocking in Heather Chase, Andrew Tubbs and Ryan Chase to put the game out of reach.

On defense, John Neill Painting was led by Tubbs, who patrolled the outfield, catching everything that came his way. John Neill and Kelli Jensen served as co-captains for the league champions.
