Harmeling was one of 13 golfers who shot below par for both rounds.  He followed Monday's 66 (-4) with a 67 (-3). 

Bangor native Jesse Speirs took the lead about when he finished an hour before the final group.  He followed his 68 (-2) from the first round with the low score of the day two:  a 66 (-4).

The 2011 Greater Bangor Open champ shared second with 1996 Maine Open winner Geoffrey Sisk.

Opening round leader and Rockport resident Mack Duke settled for a share of 13th after shooting a a three over 73 to finish two under.
