Gloucester High continued to show its Peninsula football opponents it can compete in a 35-27 Dukes’ loss at Hampton last Thursday. Both teams had a pair of touchdowns on the board at the half but Hampton pulled away in the third quarter.

Owen Rousselle put up the first Gloucester points when he caught a 68-yard pass from Brady Barefoot. Devon Pullen added another first-half touchdown with a 34-yard run.

Pullen scored again in the second half when he pulled down an interception and returned it 67 yards for a score. Barefoot accounted for the fourth TD on a short pass from James Scott.

Gloucester rushed for 283 yards in the loss and passed for 105 but was hurt by 17 penalty calls for 154 yards.
