CHARLESTON (AP) -

Anthony Eades scored 27 points and Bluefield beat Fairmont Senior 63-43 in the Class AA championship game on Saturday.
    
Top-seeded Bluefield made up for the disappointment of losing to Tug Valley in last year's championship game.
    
Bluefield (25-3) went ahead to stay midway through the first quarter and used a 17-7 run, including nine points by Eades, to finish the first half and lead 36-23 at halftime.
    
Bluefield won the third championship in school history, adding to titles in 1995 and 1996.
    
Corey Coppola and Lykel Collier each added 12 points for Bluefield, which shot 50 percent (24 of 48) from the floor.
    
Jarin Hilson scored 11 points and Austin Norman had 10 for second-seeded Fairmont Senior (21-7).
    
Fairmont Senior was held to its lowest point total of the season.
