(AP) - Keaghan Ritchie scored 14 points to lead Charleston Catholic to a 40-34 win over top-seeded St. Marys on Saturday in the lowest-ever scoring Class A championship game.
Charleston Catholic (23-3) won its first title since winning back-to-back championships in 2006 and 2007. The Irish had advanced to the championship game for the seventh time in eight seasons.
Ritchie's layup put Charleston Catholic ahead to stay, 33-32, with 3:25 left. The Irish outscored St. Marys 9-4 to finish the game.
Derek Renner led St. Marys (25-2) with 13 points while K.D. Arnett had 11 rebounds.
It was the lowest scoring Class A title game under the current three-class format that started in 1959. The previous low came in 1994 when Doddridge County beat Burch 42-41.
