While the Eagles made four miscues of their own, the defense was able to come up with plays to erase the mistakes and minimize damage.
Parkersburg South wasn't able to do the same thing.
Two errors in the first inning and one in the third contributed to a 4-0 Hedgesville lead, and that cushion proved too much for the Patriots to overcome.
South's roster is made up of 13 seniors who helped the program to its first state tournament appearance since 1987, but even with the veterans, coach Matt Null admitted nerves may have gotten the best of his squad, especially early.
"It was a strange day," Null said. "We've not had nerves throughout the postseason, but we were a little tight [today]. We had a week layoff and we were so used to playing - we played 35 baseball games - and then we shut it down. We were shaken early, we came back and battled and tried to make it a baseball game but at the end of the day we didn't make plays."
Tyler Anders doubled for the Eagles and James Wright scored two runs.
Jacob Wilcox singled and drove in a pair of runs for Parkersburg South (26-10) and Bradley Brubaker added an RBI double.Hedgesville will play Cabell Midland in the championship game 45 minutes after the conclusion of today's Class A title game.
