Watertown High School’s football team turned around a halftime deficit and defeated Arlington Catholic in the opener at Victory Field Friday night.
Watertown scored first, after intercepting the Cougars in the first quarter. But by halftime the Raiders trailed 21-12.
The second half was a different story, as the Raiders scored 26 points and pulled out a 38-35 victory.
Next week, Watertown heads out of state to play Mt. Pleasant in Rhode Island.
