Sorry for any confusion, but the game in Watertown tonight is actually at Victory Field, 40 Orchard Street,  (not the high school). Please take note and load this address into your GPS.

Game Time

This week the BHS Marching Red Devils show off their stuff in Watertown!  Please join us for some exciting football and a terrific half-time show.  Marching Band students are at the top of their game after last week's Invitational in Salem, New Hampshire.  Game time is 7:00pm.  It should be a clear and crisp evening, so an extra layer is probably a good idea.   For GPS purposes, the address for the high school is:  50 Columbia Street,  Watertown MA 01747.  Catch you at the game!
