The Gloucester High School varsity football team notched its second win Friday with a 37-14 victory at Jamestown. The Dukes are off to a 2-0 start for the first time since 1988, according to GHS head coach Brandon Kelley.
“We didn’t play our greatest, but a win’s a win,” Kelley said. The Dukes lost three fumbles and had twice as many penalties as Jamestown. “The guys were able to overcome all of that. They didn’t let the mistakes get them down. They came back and played hard.”
Gloucester got on the board early when a wild Jamestown snap went sailing and Cameron Walker covered it for a Dukes’ touchdown. Jamestown answered with its own TD but Gloucester struck for two more touchdowns and a field goal for a 24-7 lead at the break.
The Dukes added two more touchdowns in the third quarter and continued to hold Jamestown to seven points until late in the fourth when the Eagles passed for a TD in the final minutes of the contest.
