ST. JAMES - Looks certainly can be deceiving.
What looked like a Pete Webb 3-pointer and a free throw turned out to be an empty fourth-quarter possession for St. James in its 51-41 loss to St. Maria Goretti in the fifth-place game of the St. James Invitational Tournament Saturday.
Earlier, Martinsburg overcame a 12-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat Mercersburg Academy, 85-83, in the seventh-place game.
After Goretti (16-15) took a 43-37 lead on Brad Runkles' baseline jumper, Webb was fouled on a 3-point basket that was disallowed because of offensive goaltending.
Webb, who earlier converted a three-shot foul, missed all three attempts and the Saints missed an opportunity to cut the Gaels' lead to two points.
