After two postponements because of rain, the top two teams in the Greater Hancock Church Softball League played for the season's championship trophy last Wednesday evening in Widmeyer Park.  First-place St. Thomas' Episcopal Church, which went into the playoffs undefeated, emerged victorious, narrowly defeating second-place Warfordsburg (Pa.) Presbyterian, 6-4. It was a suspense-filled game, not only because of the close score, but also because skies were threatening with plenty of thunder and lightning overhead as the game neared its conclusion.  Congratulations to the St. Thomas' team.
