WATERTOWN — Wide receiver Keegan Queior said he took the Watertown Red and Black’s week one loss to Plattsburgh personally. With a chance to avenge that loss at home, Queior and the rest of the Red and Black did just that.

Watertown executed a fourth quarter comeback that resulted in a 23-20 victory over the North Stars (4-2) in its home opener Saturday night at the Alex T. Duffy Fairgrounds, earning its third Empire Football League win.
