Nothing fishy in rout
Gloucester came out of yesterday’s game against Danvers healthy, and that’s what mattered most to coach Paul Ingram. The Fishermen, who shut out Danvers, 43-0, are slated to play Dual County Large champion Lincoln-Sudbury in the Division 1A semifinals Tuesday.
Jordan Shairs and Gilbert Brown each scored twice in the first half from short distances as the Fishermen built a 29-0 lead.
Shairs struck first with a 1-yard score, and Gloucester tacked on a safety in the first quarter. Shairs scored again in the second quarter from the 5, sandwiched by two 10-yard TD rushes by Gilbert.
Joe Harmon and Alex Silveira ran for third-quarter scores for Gloucester.
“It felt good that defense and offense played well,’’ Ingram said.
Ingram plans to keep the game plan the same for the playoffs.
“We’re not going to change much,’’ Ingram said. “This has worked for us so far. It’d be silly to change anything at this point.’’
