TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Sunnyside Juniors are moving on to the state championships.

Sunnyside took the series opener Friday night 5-2. San Xavier came back Saturday with a 6-4 victory to force a deciding Game 3.

Sunnyside will open up play on July 10th against the winner from the host District 14 (Gilbert).

On the other side of town in District 5 Thornydale is battling Tucson Mountain for the championship.
