CHARLESTON, WV (AP) -

Olivia Seggie scored 14 points and Morgantown took advantage of an early injury to Parkersburg South leading scorer Keya Bartlett to upset the defending champion Patriots 46-39 in the girls Class AAA championship game Saturday night.

Sixth-seeded Morgantown (18-8) earned the fifth state title in school history and its first since 2007. The Mohigans also avenged three losses to Parkersburg South earlier this year and ended the Patriots' perfect season.

Bartlett sustained a severe cut to the head when she collided with Morgantown's Maria Williams going after a loose ball in the first quarter. She didn't return.

Taryn McCutcheon scored 16 points for top-seeded Parkersburg South (25-1). The Patriots led 28-24 at halftime but were limited to 11 points in the second half.

Brie Giuliani added 10 points for Morgantown.
