Pallazola, Gloucester Fishermen pile it on Salem

(Continued)

Gloucester relied on the powerful running of Pallazola, but also sprinkled in Good to keep the Witches honest.

“You almost know what they’re running and you can’t stop it,” Connolly said.

Pallazola had touchdown runs of 6, 5 and 1-yard in the second quarter to help Gloucester pull away.

Good scored his only touchdown on the first play after Jacob Emerson blocked a Salem punt early in the third quarter.

Pallazola pushed Gloucester’s lead to 43-8 with another 1-yard plunge early in the fourth quarter.

Salem’s final points came on a 6-play, 47-yard drive when White took a sweep 9 yards to paydirt.

The Witches had some success moving the ball on the ground as senior quarterback Austin Connolly rushed for 96 yards on 15 carries. Senior running back Aaron Palmer added 66 yards on the ground for Salem.

“We have some weapons, it’s just a matter of getting the right person the ball at the right time,” Connolly said. “Austin had a good game. He ran tough and Aaron Palmer ran tough and Rosario ran tough, and if you get White in space he’s pretty good. We just have to keep getting better.”
