Greely (14-5) vs. Camden Hills (13-7)

Saturday, 4:30 p.m.

St. Joseph’s College, Standish

Players to watch: Greely – Will Bryant, sr., pitcher (6-1, 1.10 ERA); Justin Leeman, jr., second base (.368 average, 16 RBI); Miles Shields, sr., center field (.351, 14 RBI); Calvin Soule, jr., shortstop (.365, 13 RBI)

Game notes: Greely hopes to win back-to-back state championships for the first time. These same two schools played in the 1999 Class B final, won by Greely, 3-2. The Rangers are seeking their sixth state title. Camden Hills has strong pitching depth, with a staff ERA below 2.00. The Windjammers won their first six games and had a 7-1 record midway through the season, but won just twice in the remaining eight games of the regular season before getting hot in the playoffs.
