BANGOR—Despite a seventh inning surge, the George Stevens Academy Eagles fell short of the Eastern Class C title against Bucksport on June 17. With Will Ricker pitching, the Eagles held the Golden Bucks to one run in the fourth but could not score more than a base hit. The fifth inning changed what had mostly been a three up, three down game when Bucksport scored four runs for a 5-0 lead.
