A nice sized crowd gathered at Dorothy Talbot Rink last night to cheer on the Girls JV Fishermen as they took to the ice for their first home game of the season. It was, in fact, the first home game in many seasons as Gloucester/Rockport has been without a girls’ team for years. And, while the final scored showed them down by one, the team did not disappoint.
I watch a lot of hockey and I have to say that I couldn’t stop smiling. These girls worked hard, showed amazing spirit, and demonstrated great sportsmanship and teamwork. They should be incredibly proud of the team they’ve become and I, for one, am excited to see what the rest of the season has in store.

Tough loss on Thanksgiving against Danvers. Congratulations to the Fishermen who played well throughout the season winning the league championship and also to the cheerleaders for their second place finish in the division at the state championships!!
GHS in hard fought playoff loss to Marblehead 41-26. Marblehead tough team to stop….a lot of offensive weapons.
Gloucester wins first game of the playoffs beating Melrose 18-6 on another wet cold night at New Balance-Newell Stadium. Next game will be Friday At Marblehead.
The Fishermen win in a game that was no contest at all in conditions that were better suited for ducks. It was senior night and also featured the presentation of the King and Queen. The final score was 49-7. Next week will be the first game of the playoffs. It will be at home.
The Fishermen roll over Salem 48-28 to improve to 5-1 on the season. They could have scored a lot more if they wanted!
The Fishermen run all over Revere and win big. Final score was 34-14
Look for this young man on the GHS gridiron, as a defensive back. He worked hard at Cape Pond Ice all summer long.
The Fishermen win big in game with Swampscott. The team comes back playing strong after a rocky start and wins 32-17
The Fishermen loose not playing well in first half and then hold Beverly scoreless in the second half while they score two touchdowns.The final score was 24-12.
John and his lovely wife Cathy are visiting from Washington D.C., John is a GHS Hall of Famer, and also a FOB (Friend of the Blog).
The Fishermen win their opening game defeating Lynn Classical with just a couple of minutes left on the game clock. Kind of a typical Gloucester-Lynn Classical game!
While on the Ardelle between 1 and 2pm Saturday I photographed some of the last rowers in the Blackburn Challenge, numbers 172, 113, 5, 26, 25, 124, 41, 112 and 28. -Len
For some odd reason, somebody keeps barricading the kids’ favorite spot. This is creating an unsafe situation. Generations of young children have learned to jump off the pier by being able to jump without having to climb the railing, which makes it a lot harder to learn — and way more scary too. Whomever keeps barricading the jump spot, please remove the barricades. Thanks!

Great for the guest of the beautiful Beauport Hotel to be able to go Stand Up Paddling Boarding right from the beach. Good luck to Cape Ann SUP. If you have never done this, you should give it a try. Lots of fun.
