The Watertown High School varsity field hockey team hasn’t lost a single game out of the past 115 played. The Raiders’ most recent win was Saturday, Nov. 16, at Worcester Polytechnic Institute. There the Raiders beat Auburn, 1-0, for the Division 2 state championship. Head coach Eileen Donahue and the Raiders have won this title for five years in a row.

Sophomore Mikayla Paone scored the game’s only goal with 12:18 left in the first half.  Junior Rachel Campbell assisted on the goal.

Many friends and family members were in the stands supporting Watertown during the game.

Junior cocaptains Emily Loprete and Allie Doggett couldn’t have been more proud of their team.

After the win, Allie said, “I was so excited! Everything we’ve done has paid off and I’m so proud of our team!”

Emily was speechless, saying only, “I was very proud.”
