Visiting Pentucket tied it up five minutes later, and nearly scored again minutes later.
Watertown controlled the ball most of the second half and had numerous chances but did not cash in until 17 minutes into the second half. Vardan Yeghiyan’s shot hit the far post, and Roman Davis tapped in the goal. The Raiders were able to hold off Pentucket and claim the win.
