Watertown Football Team Looks to Return to Winning Ways in 2019

The Watertown High School football team hopes to celebrate more wins in 2019 after the team’s string of winning seasons, winning streak against Belmont, and playoff streams were broken in 2018.

The 2018 season saw the end of many streaks the Raiders were accustomed to extending such as beating Belmont on Thanksgiving (five years in a row), making the playoffs (five straight seasons) and finishing with a winning record (nine straight years). All those streaks will have to start over in 2019.
