Nick Watson hauled in three long touchdown passes to lead Southwest to a convincing 42-14 victory over Braddock in the district opener for both teams. The improvement in the Eagles can be measured by the fact that the Bulldogs won this matchup by five touchdowns a year ago. Southwest (3-1, 1-0) has now beaten the Bulldogs (0-3, 0-1). seven of the last eight meetings. Watson, a senior, caught scoring passes of 56 and 37 yards from Fanelle Andrus and a 45-yarder from Jordan Worley. The other scores by the Eagles came on a 1-yard run by Deondre Henry, a 3-yard run by Edwin Allen and Michael Salvatore's recovery of a blocked punt in the end zone. Worley and Roman Porta also made touchdown-saving tackles when they caught Braddock players from behind. The Salvatore TD came on Southwest's second blocked punt of the game. Earlier, Deshon Tanner blocked a punt that was recovered by Jayvon Only at the Bulldogs' 37, setting up the second Watson score. The closest Braddock got was early in the third quarter when they closed the margin to 21-14.
