Posted:
BLUEFIELD (WVVA) - This year's Coppinger championship will feature a pair of Tazewell County rivals, as the Bulldogs of Tazewell will face the Richlands Blue Tornado for the title.

Richlands advanced to Saturday's final by defeating Princeton 6-5 Wednesday. The Tigers led most of the game, until Richlands evened things at 5 in the sixth inning. The two would need extra innings to decide a winner, with The Blue Tornado ultimately advancing.

Next up was Bluefield vs Tazewell. The Bulldogs opened a 5-0 lead in the first inning and never looked back, winning 18-8.

The two will square off for the tournament crown Saturday evening at Bowen Field.
