GHS soccer eliminated in regional quarterfinals
The Gloucester High School varsity boys made it to the Eastern Region Soccer Tournament but came up short in the quarterfinals Tuesday. The Dukes, playing without two starters, were held to only two shots on goal and fell, 1-0, to Maury High School.
Prior to regional play, the Dukes lost a hard-fought, penalty-ridden Peninsula District Tournament championship game to Menchville, 2-1, at GHS on Friday.
After the Monarchs went up, 1-0, Chris Bendit tied it for Gloucester with a header. It looked like the match was going into overtime until Menchville’s Brian Meier slipped the game winner past keeper Lee Loudermilk with just under a minute remaining.
