Hedgesville (28-7) wasn't without its troubles, finishing with four errors to give the teams a combined 11 miscues.
"It was uncharacteristic for us," Webb said. "When you roll over, you're not going to get a lot of base hits, but you have to give their pitcher a lot of credit. He worked in and out, up and down, changed speeds, threw his curveball for strikes. Against high school hitters, anytime you can throw two or three pitches for strikes, you're going to be successful."
The South pitcher was Wes Mitchem, who was the hard luck loser despite giving up just one earned run, striking out six batters and not walking any.
He also held down Hedgesville senior Daniel Heleine, who came into the game with 16 home runs this season. He was 0-for-3 with a strikeouts.
"I tried to approach it relaxed and everything," Heleine said. "I was just out in front of it today. You have your good days and you have your off days."
Heleine will get another chance today when the Eagles play for the Class AAA title.
