“Last week I thought we were a bit tentative,” Pugh said. “But this week back on our home field in front of a big crowd, the kids came out ready to play and really came up big early.”
MacKay took a pitch from the backfield and threw a strike to Tines for a 25 yard touchdown later in the half, and Bunker added the conversion for a 21-0 lead.
The Fishermen looked to get some momentum back before the half ended, recovering a punt that hit off the Masconomet up-back at the 21-yard line. The Chieftains defense, however, came up big stopping Gloucester at the one yard line on the final play of the half.
Tivinis would add a 40-yard scoring run in the fourth quarter.
