The Gloucester High School varsity girls’ soccer team posted two more shutouts in recent Peninsula District play at Mary Passage Field in Newport News. The Dukes got by Woodside, 1-0, last week and beat Denbigh, 9-0, on Tuesday.

Midway through the first half with Woodside, the Wolverines were called for a hand ball in the keeper box. Mary Williams took the shot for Gloucester and scored the lone goal of the game for the 1-0 win.

Delaney Doyle scored the first goal against the Patriots, pounding in a shot from the 18-yard line. Lauren Orga struck for the next two goals with assists from Doyle and Audrey Collier. Rachael Peterson and defender McKensie Fischer, who rushed the net from the 25-yard mark, each scored to make it 5-0.
