Two Watertown High School teams claimed Middlesex League titles this fall. 

Boys Soccer

The Raiders claimed the Middlesex Freedom title by beating Burlington 3-0, and the team gave its coach a milestone victory.

Tuesday’s win gave Watertown’s second league title — the last coming in 2016 — and the first time the school won the league outright.

On Thursday, the Raiders defeated Wilmington 3-1, with junior Gevork Karapetyan scoring two goals in the road victory. The win also gave coach Frank Cacia his 200th career win and 100th win with Watertown.

The Raiders will find out their first tournament opponent this week.

Field Hockey

The undefeated Raiders field hockey team finished the regular season with a 6-0 victory at Wilmington. Senior Olivia Lampasona scored twice in the win.

Watertown will head into the tournament with a 16-0-1 record, with the 1-1 tie coming at home against Lexington.

The Raiders will seek their 10th straight MIAA Div. 2 State Championship this year. The pairings will be released this week.


Watertown’s football team did not make the state tournament this season, but the Raiders faced a familiar foe in the non-playoff matchup Friday night. Watertown defeated Lynnfield 7-2 in a non-playoff game at Victory Field.

The Raiders beat the Vikings for the second year. Last season, the teams played at Lynnfield and Watertown scored two late touchdowns to complete a thrilling 38-34 comeback win in the North Section final.

Watertown improves to 2-6, and will have another non-playoff game this week against a yet to be announced opponent.
