Red & Black wins exhibition debut

Red & Black wins exhibition debut

SUNDAY, JUNE 14, 2009

Riding a stout defense, the Watertown Red and Black began its season Saturday night with a 6-3 exhibition victory over the Lyndonville Tigers at the Alex T. Duffy Fairgrounds.

The Red and Black defense, led by linebacker Mike Dumaw, limited Lyndonville to just a second-quarter field goal. Dumaw registered seven solo tackles and nine assists to lead the defense.

Linebacker Greg Roberson had two quarterback sacks and four tackles, defensive end James Moore came up with two fumble recoveries, Ben Call had three sacks, and Dusty Houppert and Ben Pritchard each added eight tackles.

"The defense played really well," said Watertown head coach George Ashcraft. "The offense got off to a slow start. But we've got some good personnel and three weeks to get ready (for the regular season)."

Watertown's only score came on a 12-yard pass from quarterback Brian Green to Paul Blouin early in the second quarter.

T. J. Williams led the rushing attack with 25 yards on eight carries.

Watertown is back home in two weeks, hosting the New York Cougars from Buffalo in another exhibition game.

The regular-season opener is July 11 at the Fairgrounds against Massena. Season tickets are still available for $25.
