St. Paul got off to its first 3-0 start since 2008. With a 46-32 victory over Watertown, the Falcons did most of their damage on the ground.

As a team, they ran for over 350 yards.

Most of the Indians yards came through the air as St. Paul shut down the running attack for the third straight contest.

With a 22-7 halftime lead, a Falcons touchdown run early in the second half was negated by a penalty and Watertown scored on the ensuing possession getting back in the game.

It was a back and forth affair but St. Paul maintained the lead and held on for the victory.
