2A State Tournament Pairings
The stage is set for the Utah State High School 2-A baseball tournament schedules this week in Helper and Price.
Eight prep teams will be in Carbon County Thursday, Friday and Saturday seeking the baseball championship in the double elimination meet.
Beginning on Thursday, games at the College of Eastern Utah field and Gardner Field in Helper will start at 11 a.m.
The two games schedules for the CEU field will be elimination games, as all four teams received losses in first round games last Saturday.
The first game matches Gunnison with Grand at 11 a.m. and will be followed by a 1:30 p.m. matchup between Richfield and North Sevier.
The winners of the two games will move on to Helper for late afternoon and evening games against the losers of earlier games played in Helper.
The first championship bracket game in Helper pits Parowan against Beaver at 11 p.m. and the second will be Juan Diego and Enterprise at 1:30 p.m.
The winners of these games will get the rest of the day off, awaiting action on Friday.
The loser face elimination against the winners coming out of the CEU action in 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. games.
Tournament action continues on Friday in Helper with three games, the first at 11 a.m.
The 2A state title game will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday.
The possibility exists that two games will be required on Saturday should the team coming out of the loser's bracket upset the undefeated team.
