FORT WASHINGTON — After having up and down performances for the majority of the season, it appears that the boys basketball team has found a way to right the ship. On Feb. 6, the Patriots reeled off their third straight win — a 55-37 outcome — against William Penn Charter. The three-game streak is the longest of it’s type for GA this season.
On offense, the game played out like most have for the Patriots. The team scored 55 points, which also happens to be their average points per game this year. The main difference was the defense allowing their fewest amount of points this season.
Guards Jordan Longino ’21 and Zachary Anderson ’20 both tallied 15 points in the win and combined to go 9/13 from the free-throw line. Juan Adames ’20 continued the trend of good guard play by adding nine points.
Things were tight in the first half, but the Patriots were able to scrap to a 20-15 lead at the break. The second half was the turning points and saw GA go off for a total of 35 points while limiting Penn Charter to only 22.
Germantown Academy is now 9-14 (2-7 in the Inter-Ac League) and will look to continue their streak on Feb. 7 when they travel to The Pennington School for a 4:30 p.m. tip off. They will then take on Pennington again on Feb. 9.
