Charleston, WV (WOAY) – Bluefield girls basketball is in the Class AA state championship game after a 55-43 win against Winfield in Charleston.
Like Thursday’s quarterfinal win against River View, the Lady Beavers got out to an early lead in the first quarter, with their quick pace establishing momentum on both sides of the ball. Winfield narrowed the deficit multiple times in the second half, but the top seed was able to make free throws to preserve its lead.
Autumn Spangler had 18 points and nine rebounds, while Jia Coppola also came close to a double-double with nine points and eight rebounds.
Bluefield will face Fairmont Senior at 2:30 PM on Saturday. The Lady Polar Bears are in the Class AA championship for a third straight year, having lost to Sissonville in 2015 and Wyoming East last year.
