The return of running back Mange Camara helped the Watertown High School claim its third win in a row this week.
The Raiders returned to Victory Field Friday night, and Camara exploded for three touchdowns in Watertown’s 25-22 win over Newburyport in the non-playoff game.
The senior’s first touchdown came on a 75 yard run. The kick was missed, leaving the score 6-0 after the first quarter.
Camara was not the only Raider to find the end zone. In the second quarter, sophomore David Manoukian scored on a 15-yard run. The conversion failed. Newburyport struck back with a touchdown of its own.
Then Camara ran 44 yards for a touchdown. The missed conversion left the score at 18-7. Before halftime, the Clippers scored another touchdown, and this time got a two-point conversion to make it 18-15 at the half.
Camara’s third score of the game came in the third quarter on a 9-yard carry, and this time Adam Haloul made the extra point. Newburyport (5-5) scored in the fourth quarter, but the Raiders held on for the three-point win.
Watertown improves to 4-6, and now can look ahead to the Thanksgiving game against Belmont. The game will be at 10:15 a.m. at Belmont’s Harris Field.
