BULLETIN: Oct. 21, 2015 — The undefeated-streak mark has fallen

With a 6-0 win over Melrose (Mass.), including four goals in the first 12 minutes of play, the Watertown (Mass.) field hockey team has set the record for the most consecutive field hockey games without defeat in the history of the National Federation, breaking the 10-year-old mark set by the legendary Voorhees Eastern (N.J.) program.

The game was also the 94th consecutive victory, placing the team within shouting distance of the all-time mark of 106, set by Oklahoma City Casady School (Okla.) from 1959 to 1969.

Watertown, as it has done 40 times in its last 41 matches, shut out its opponent to gain the victory. The Raiders will have only a couple of days to celebrate before playing Wakefield (Mass.) Memorial to close the regular season, then the MIAA Division 2 playoffs begin.

The usual suspects await the Raiders, with a likely confrontation to come against the likes of 13-2 South Deerfield Frontier Regional (Mass.), or 14-0 Auburn (Mass.) if they can escape their regional brackets.
