After a tough loss against Weston on Friday, Gloucester High School’s field hockey team is officially out of the State Tournament.

The game ended with a score of 4-0.  Though the field hockey team put up a good fight, Weston’s stick handling skills were superior Gloucester’s skills.  With almost the entire game played on Gloucester’s side of the field, goalie Deyanna Foley made a total of 19 saves.

In the last ten minutes of the game Gloucester came back and took a few shots on the Weston goalie, but they were unable to score.

Though Gloucester lost in the Quarter Finals, it was the only team in the Northeast Conference to make it this far. Teams in the NEC that did make it,  such as Danvers, Marblehead, Swampscott, and Beverly, all lost in the first round.
