Watertown Field Hockey Team Hopes To Make History

August 16, 2019


IF YOU RECOGNIZE YOURSELF ON THIS COFFEE WANTS TO HEAR FROM YOU. THEY ARE JUST ONE WIN AWAY. THE RAIDERS HAVE WON 153 GAMES IN A ROW. IF THEY WIN TOMORROW NIGHT THEY WILL MAKE A NEW RECORD. Reporter: FOR 2,043 DAYS THIS FIELD HOCKEY TEAM HAS DONE NOTHING BUT WIN. I HAVEN’T FOCUSED ON THAT AT ALL. Reporter: THAT ANSWER MIGHT BE AN INSIGHT INTO THEIR SUCCESS. WAY WE’RE GOING TO DO IS MY CAR LA IS GOING TO BE DOWN THERE. Reporter: COACH EILEEN DONAHUE IN HER 30 THEY ARE YEAR AS HEAD COACH HAS THE RAIDERS ON THE BRINK OF HISTORY 153 CONSECUTIVE WINS AND IF THEY WIN AT HOME WEDNESDAY THEY WILL BREAK THE NATIONAL RECORD AT 154. ANXIETY ABOUT TOMORROW? NO BECAUSE ACTUALLY JUST THINKING ABOUT TODAY’S PRACTICE BECAUSE WE MESSED UP ON A FEW THINGS LAST NIGHT. Reporter: FOR 6.5 YEARS DONAHUE HAS BEEN ABLE TO INSTILL THAT RELENT HESS FOCUS ON THE PRESENT INTO HER GIRLS. WE CAN ALWAYS GET BETTER SHE SAYS. TOMORROW WOULD BREAK THE RECORD. HAVE YOU THOUGHT MUCH ABOUT THAT? IT’S NOT LIKE OUT PRIORITY. SHE DOESN’T TALK ABOUT IT. IT’S NOT SOMETHING THAT WE’RE LIKE OH, WE’RE THIS GAME CLOSER TO THE STREAK WE DON’T TALK ABOUT THAT. Reporter: MAKE NO MISTAKE WEDNESDAY IS NOT JUST ANOTHER GAME. CONSIDER THIS A WIN WOULD CEMENT WATERTOWN FIELD HOCKEY AS ONE OF THE GREATEST HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS PROGRAMS IN HISTORY. YOU WERE LIKE 11.5 OR SO WHEN THE STREAK STARTED ISN’T THAT MIND BLOWING. IT’S VERY SURREAL. IT’S WEIRD TO THINK TOMORROW COULD BRING EVERYTHING TOGETHER EVERY SINGLE GIRL WHO’S PLAYED IN THIS PROGRAM BEFORE LIKE THE PAST 6 YEARS LIKE WE’RE REPRESENTING THEM TOO. BUT NO PRESSURE. SCARY HISTORY WATERTOWN HAD A REALLY LONG STREAK IN THE 70s TOO AND IT WAS BROKEN BY MELROSE. SO WHO DO THEY PLAY TOMORROW? MELROSE. SO I PROMISED THE GIRLS AND THE COACH THAT WE WOULD — HERE WE GO. DO KNOCKING ON WOOD STEVE BECAUSE THE LAST THING I WANT IS TO BE ACCUSED OF JINXING THIS TEAM AS THEY ARE ON THE BRINK OF HISTORY. ISN’T IT REMARKABLE? THAT’S A GREAT STORY.
