Green Bay West sweeps Door County

Two Door County football teams got a taste of football Friday night in Ashwaubenon.


Sturgeon Bay and Noor Door each fell to Green Bay West, which played both games back too. In their 44-14 loss to the Wildcats, Noor Door scored one touchdown in each half, including one last drive to end the game where Luke Steebs found Sam Lindenberg in the end zone.



Gibraltar football lives on

They will not have pads on nor will they play on grass this fall, but members of the Gibraltar football team will at least have some Friday night lights to enjoy.


Gibraltar will be featured in the National Youth Football Organization Friday Night Showcase held at Capital Credit Union Park in Ashwaubenon beginning this Friday. Along with Sturgeon Bay, Gibralrar is one of the only two eight-man football programs in the 11-team field and likely among the smallest of schools. The passing league was co-created by former Sturgeon Bay football standout Chris Griesen as a way to highlight local players who will not be playing this fall due to concerns around the coronavirus. The league is not sanctioned by the WIAA or its member schools but will feature WIAA referees who are not working other games around the state. Games will take place at 6, 7, and 8 p.m. on two different fields inside the ballpark. Fans are allowed for $7 (adults) and $4 (students and kids).


Former head coach Jimmy Laughlin told NRSN that the credit goes to John Sawyer for putting in the leg work to get things rolling for kids that otherwise would not have had the chance to play football this fall. He is excited to get the boys active and having some fun while facing some tough competition along the way.


Below is the partial regular-season schedules. A tournament will follow.

Gibraltar cross country stands alone

It turns out one Gibraltar sports team will have a fall season after all.


The Vikings cross country team will be able to compete this fall despite the school board's decision earlier this week to move its other autumn sports to an alternative spring season. That means members of the football, volleyball, and joint swimming and soccer teams could either wait it out or do a fourth sport potentially. 


The catch is who do they run against. Most invitationals have been ruled out and the Packerland Conference has limited competitions to schools that are in the low to moderate levels. Door County just entered the moderate level earlier this week, but no other county within the Packerland Conference is there quite yet. That means Gibraltar's only other opponents could be Sturgeon Bay, Sevastopol, and Southern Door.

Gibraltar sticks to fall sports delay

Athletes at Gibraltar Secondary School will have to wait till spring to play.


According to the athletic director Peggy Tanck, the Gibraltar School Board stuck by its original decision to delay the fall sports season to the alternative spring season. That vote took place the same week Southern Door and Kewaunee voted to move ahead with a fall sports season and Sturgeon Bay opted to wait until spring. Other local schools pushing ahead with a fall sports season include Algoma, Luxemburg-Casco, and Sevastopol. Even with that, the Packerland Conference is not allowing competitions to take place if the COVID-19 activity level remains at their current status. It would need to drop to low or medium for games to occur. If the conference can not get at least half of their games in this fall, they could also move their fall slate to the alternative spring season.
