With a perfect 7-0 record, Watertown will host a playoff game on Halloween night as the second seed in the MIAA Div. 4 North bracket.

The Raiders will take on seventh-seeded Swampcott (3-4) on Friday, Oct. 31 at 7 p.m. at Victory Field. Watertown won the Middlesex League Freedom Division with a win Friday at Wilmington.

Last year Watertown made the tournament and won the first round game over Triton and lost in the section semifinal at Pentucket.

Top seed this year in the Div. 4 North section is Winthrop, which also has a 7-0 record but has better power rating. The rating is based on the difficulty of the schedule and records of opponents.

If Watertown wins, it will host the winner of the Lynnfield-Saugus game. The loser of the Watertown-Swampscott game plays the loser of the Lynnfield-Saugus game.
