WATERTOWN — In what has already been a strange season for the Watertown Red and Black, things got a whole lot crazier Saturday night.

After rallying to take the lead in the first half against the visiting Broome County Stallions, the Red and Black was awarded a forfeit win after an incident at halftime at George Ashcraft Field at the Alex T. Duffy Fairgrounds.

Watertown, which led 17-12 at halftime, finishes at 10-0 in the regular season in the Empire Football League with forfeited victory.

The game was called at halftime as the Broome County team didn’t come out for the second half after fan reportedly pulled a gun during halftime on the Stallions’ side of the field.

“They were shooting their mouth off and the people on (Broome County) tried to say somebody reached in a fanny-pack and someone was saying there was a gun,” Watertown assistant coach Jerry Levine said. “But there was no gun and we called police right away. They can say what they want to say.”
