Sam Huston lined a two-run double in the top of the sixth, and Trevor DeLaite and Andrew Hillier combined on a two-hitter to lead Bangor (23-5) to a 2-0 victory over Bessey Motors (22-5) in the title game of the American Legion state tournament in Bangor.
Bessey Motors, behind Riley Chickering’s eight-strikeout performance, forced a final game with a 3-2 win in Sunday’s opener.

JUNIOR LEGION: Jesse Colford pitched the Bangor Cadets (20-4) to a 1-0 victory over South Portland (19-5) in the championship game of the state tournament in Old Orchard Beach.
Colford limited South Portland to five hits while striking out five and walking none.
Joey Moir scored the only run, coming home on Nick Cowperthwaite’s double.
Bangor cannot represent Maine in the Northeast Regional because of player commitments to the state champion Bangor Senior Legion team as well as to the Bangor entrant in the Senior League World Series. So South Portland will go to the Northeast Regional, which starts Saturday in Manchester, New Hampshire.
