The Lady Dukes got back on track with a win Monday night against the Tabb Tigers, a shift in momentum following a tightly-contested loss to Woodside on Friday that saw Gloucester fall by a single point.
In Friday’s home contest, the Gloucester High School varsity girls’ basketball team led the first three quarters behind a season-high scoring night from Kenna Keyes. The guard would finish with 15 points, many of which came at the free throw line after drives to the basket.
Gloucester enjoyed a slim 19-17 lead at half and as the third quarter elapsed it looked like the Dukes would run away with the game. Thanks to stout defense Gloucester held Woodside to a mere four points while scoring 15 to go up 34-21.
However, in the final quarter the Warriors came out fighting. A 21-6 quarter sealed a narrow victory for the away team as Gloucester sputtered. Woodside had five players score eight or more points in a solid team effort that was enough to earn a road victory.
