BANGOR — Calais High School righthander Adam Geel tossed an eight-hit complete game.
    
But his two pick-offs were just as important as they choked off a pair of late Penobscot Valley of Howland rallies and gave Calais a 4-3 win in the Eastern Maine Class C title game at Mansfield Stadium Tuesday night.
    
Third-seeded Calais, now 15-3, will take on 17-2 Dirigo of Dixfield in Saturday’s 5 p.m. state title game at Larry Mahaney Diamond on the Saint Joseph’s College campus in Standish.
    
It was Calais’ first Eastern Maine baseball championship since 1992.
    
Fourth seed Penobscot Valley, playing in its first ever Eastern Maine baseball championship game, wound up 13-6.
