— CUMBERLAND — Garrett Snoops hit two three-point goals and Tyler Washington added another in the final five minutes to lift Anne Arundel to a 79-70 victory over Allegany College of Maryland Saturday evening at Bob Kirk Arena.

Anne Arundel (18-8) led by only 57-55 with five minutes remaining when Snoops hit a well-defended three-point shot over Garrett D’Atri to make it 60-55. After an Allegany miss, Snoops drilled a 25-footer to extend the margin to 63-55.

And after Allegany missed the front end of a one-and-one, Washington, who had missed four previous three-point shots, hit his three to seal the win for the Pioneers, who made 7 of 8 foul shots in the last two minutes.

“It was a hard-fought, tough game. I’m proud of the guys. They played to the end,’’ said Allegany first-year coach Tommie Reams. “Anne Arundel hit some contested shots in the end. We were able to keep (the deficit) in single digits but couldn’t find a way to pull it out.”

Snoops finished with 22 points, Washington had 18 and Ryan Hawkins 16 for Anne Arundel.

Tyson Reynold had a big 20-point, 13-rebound game and Davon Williams also had a double-double with 11 points and 11 rebounds. Adam Wells flirted with a triple-double, finishing with 10 rebounds, nine assists and six points, and D’Atri had 10 points.

Allegany (5-20) ends its regular season today in a 2 p.m. game against Northern Virginia at Bob Kirk Arena.
