The drive from Cape Cod to Cape Ann was a long one for Barnstable yesterday. But the drive home must have seemed like an eternity.

Conor Ressel scored a pair of first-half touchdowns, but he was the only Gloucester player to score more than once.

Barnstable's only score came on Doug Crook Jr.'s ninth touchdown pass of the year, a 40-yard completion to Isaiah Voegeli in the second quarter.
