Bellefonte finished with a 4-1 record, while Mount Union, Huntingdon and State College all finished at 3-2.
Bellefonte took advantage of a couple BEA errors in the top of the sixth inning to take the lead. BEA had two runners aboard with no outs, but Dan Catchmark slammed the door shut, then pitched a 1-2-3 seventh for the save. Kalin Schvenke earned the win.
Dylan Dietrick had two singles and Caden Lucas doubled to lead Bellefonte.
