Bluefield Daily Telegraph

BLUEFIELD — Rain on Friday afternoon forced suspension of the Class AA sectional tournament championship-round game between PikeView and James Monroe high schools at Bowen Field.

The game is now scheduled to resume at 4 p.m. Saturday, May 11, at PikeView High School in Gardner, weather permitting. The contest will resume in the top of the third inning. PikeView pushed across a run to take a 3-2 lead on Friday just before the officials called a rain delay.

Downpours soaked the infield, ending the day for both teams.

The first game on Friday was completed, with James Monroe eliminating Bluefield 2-1 and earning the championship-round berth against PikeView in the double-elimination tournament.
