Watertown

  • Last year's record: 6-5
  • Strength: Experience, work ethic.
  • Concerns: Depth.
  • Coach: John Cacace (7th season, 33-55)
  • Playing surface: Artificial turf
  • Schedule: Complete list of games

Watertown has put together four consecutive winning season, and that's the goal coach John Cacace has set for the squad again this season. The Raiders are the smallest team in the league and in order to make the playoffs they'll have to knock off some top teams. Cacace said the difficulty of the team's schedule is their biggest challenge this season. Cacace said the team is still searching for its identity, but is focused on toughness and defense.

 

Wilmington

  • Last year's record: 2-9
  • Strength: Big linemen, returning running backs.
  • Concerns: Overall depth.
  • Coach: Mike Barry (6th season, 33-21)
  • Playing surface: Artificial turf
  • Schedule: Complete list of games

Wilmington is coming of its first losing season in 17 years and is looking to rebound. During the offseason, Wilmington built a new field moving from grass to artificial turf. Coach Mike Barry is hoping the new field stirs up some excitement for the Wildcats season, but doesn't think his players will be impacted by the surface. "We've played on it enough visiting other teams and so forth so lately our kids are more used to it," he said. "I am not expecting any major challenges."
