Red Raiders travel to Stoneham in search of a win after last week's loss to Burlington.
After a demoralizing loss, it's always interesting to see which team shows up on the field during the next week: the one that bounces back or the team that continues to slide in the wrong direction. The Watertown High football faced a situation very similar to the one it is in now just a few weeks ago. After a 14-0 loss to Weston, the Red Raiders rattled off two wins — one in blowout fashion and one by a score of 14-12 over Archbishop Williams. Burlington put a hurting on the Red Raiders last week to the score of 35-14, and Watertown Head Coach John Cacace had to watch his defense struggle against a mighty rushing attack.

The Raiders ratcheted up the pressure in the second half as Watertown scored three more goals to seal the 5-1 win. Things could have been much worse, however, if it wasn't for the impressive play of the Malden defense and sophomore goalie Christina Ascolillo. …
After some frustrating years, Watertown High School can secure its second straight winning season this fall. John Cacace's squad heads into the final stretch, led by quarterback C.J. Logan.
There was a time, in the not-so-distant past, when the Watertown High football team was stuck in a 22-game losing streak. Enter John Cacace and his coaching staff four years ago and the Red Raiders could be looking at their second consecutive winning season. The Red Raiders, who finished last season with a 6-5 record last year after winning five games combined in the previous two years, now sit at 5-2 after moving through a tough nonleague schedule. Cacace said the turnaround started when the players started buying into the system and believing that better times were ahead, and that started with a "winning" commitment in the offseason workouts. "The expectations for winning and playing well are light years from where they used to be," said…
