On first appearance, Gloucester High is fielding two football teams: a first-half squad and a different on in the second half.
The Fisherman experiment a bit in the first half, analyze their issues during the break and then come out flying in the second half with a different scheme and attitude.
“The first half is more seeing what we can do and what we can’t do,” said senior back Jordan Pallazola, who scored three touchdowns, all in the fourth quarter, of Gloucester’s 28-13 win over Beverly in the Division 3 Northeast playoffs Friday night.
“And then in the second half, we bring them what we have and shut them down.”
Gloucester led 7-0 at the half, but clearly needed to make adjustments. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
