“In the second half, we did a better job on the glass and that’s what won us the game,’’ Latos said.
Armstrong-Potomac (3-15) still shot a very respectable 48.5 percent (16-of-33) from the field, but the Trojans missed all three of their free-throw attempts in the fourth quarter.
“Those are kid that can know those down, I have complete confidence in them,’’ said Armstrong-Potomac coach Sean O’Brien. “Georgetown executed, they rebound and got the loose balls better than we did.
“I was still proud of the way our kids played, they were resilient and that’s good to see.’’
With the victory, Georgetown-Ridge Farm will advance to Saturday’s fifth-place game against the Oakwood Comets; while Armstrong-Potomac has been eliminated from the tournament.
“It’s definitely a pride factor,’’ Reed said. “We don’t want to be the only team not playing on the final day of the County Tournament.
“It’s also good motivation for the team. It shows that we are capable of winning games and it’s definitely better than a loss.’’
Latos said at this point in the season, any win is important.
Dentler Loschen scored a game-high 17 points, while Austin Rademacher had 15 points and a team-high four assists for the Trojans.
Georgetown-Ridge Farm was led by Goodwin with 15, while Reed had 12 and Bina chipped in with 11.
Goodwin and Bina also led the Buffaloes with seven rebounds each.
