Eagles dominate to homecoming victory

The Southern Door football team put an exclamation mark on homecoming week with a 40-14 victory over Clintonville. The Eagles controlled both sides of the line of scrimmage which allowed their skill players to navigate the offense down the field and forced Clintonville’s offense into making throws under duress. 

 

The Eagles really took flight after the first quarter, which ended with the Truckers in front, 8-6. The first score came on the opening drive on a two yard touchdown run from Jack Peterson, to put Southern Door ahead, 6-0. Taylor Schaefer was the workhorse for that drive and much of the game for Southern Door, but fell just shy of getting his first touchdown of the season. Clintonville answered the opening drive with a 32 yard touchdown pass from Sam Wegener to Kolton Barkow. 

 

Southern Door took the game back over in the second quarter when Drew Daoust hit Jared Hawkey on a 16-yard touchdown pass, to Southern Door up 12-8. That was the first of three Daoust touchdowns on the night. With 2:38 left in the first half, Peterson scored his second rushing touchdown on a 52 yard touchdown run. Southern Door then went to halftime with an 18-8 lead. 

 

Scoring would go silent in the third quarter until Southern Door got a 26-yard touchdown run from Daoust with 3:02 left in the period. Not even two game minutes later, Daoust returned an interception for a touchdown from around 30 yards out. Within a couple of minutes, Southern Door’s ten-point lead turned into a 32-8 route. 

 

Derek Shinkgten scored the final touchdown for the Eagles with just under ten minutes left to play in the fourth quarter. Jonas Jandrin followed that up with an interception defense. The Truckers gave one last effort and it paid off late in the fourth quarter when Sam Wegener found Jordan Wegener for a 58 yard score. 

 

For the Eagles, Ben Kline got his first win in his current role as Interim Head Coach. It was announced on Friday that he would be coaching the game for the Eagles. Kline was able to get each healthy player in the game and said that the reserves even preserved their goal of giving up only 15 or less points, when they stopped Clintonville’s final two point conversion attempt. The Eagles defensive line brought pressure all night, including Kody Marchant who was in on a couple of sacks. 

 

Southern Door is now 5-1 overall this season and 3-0 in conference play. The next game they play in is at Peshtigo, on October 1st. Pregame coverage on 104.1 WRLU begins at 6:30 PM with a kickoff at 7:00 PM.

Welcome back, Jack: Peterson scores three touchdowns in Eagles win

Southern Door overcame three first half turnovers as quarterback Jack Peterson returned from injury and scored three touchdowns, including a game-sealing 71-yard run in Friday’s 22-8 win over Bonduel. Southern Door coughed up two fumbles and threw for an interception shortly before the end of the first half, but the Southern Door defense was able to stiffen up at nearly each pivotal point. 

 

Peterson’s night didn’t start as well as it ended, as he fumbled on the third Eagles play and the Bears took advantage with a one yard touchdown run by Louis Hrabik to make the score 8-0 in the first quarter. Peterson had the first touchdown of his hat trick when he scored on a 19-yard run, in which he was running off the right side of the line of scrimmage, and reversed field and won the race to the opposite pylon. The score and conversion tied the game at 8 apiece with 6:59 left to go in the first half. The ensuing Bonduel possession, Lane Aleson recovered a fumble which set up the first and only Southern Door lead. 

 

A minute after Peterson’s touchdown run, he found Drew Daoust who made a diving grab for a 31-yard touchdown. With 5:58 left on the clock in the second quarter, the Eagles were up 16-8 and would take that lead all the way until there was 3:01 left in the game. While trying not to give Bonduel a legitimate shot to come back into the game in the fourth quarter, Peterson took a designed option to the left, and reversed the other way en route to a 71-yard touchdown run that included multiple broken tackles. The score made the game 22-8, and Southern Door made Bonduel turn the ball over on downs the next possession. Southern Door’s defense held up well after the first quarter, as Taylor Schaefer got an interception and the defensive line kept pressure on Noah Weier throughout much of the game. The Eagles will host Clintonville next Friday, September 24th. Pregame coverage will begin for that game at 6:30 PM on 104.1 WRLU and newradiosports.com, and at 7:00 PM the game will kickoff.

Southern Door pieces together first conference win

Despite giving up a kickoff return for a touchdown and a pick-six, Southern Door reached 1-0 in conference play in Mishicot on Friday, winning 28-20. The first quarter was scoreless as both teams exchanged interceptions. Drew Daoust, who replaced an injured Jack Peterson at quarterback, had a pass intercepted in the endzone by Logan Marqaurdt early in the game. Shortly after, Jared Hawkey intercepted a Jacob Hibbard pass in the first quarter. 

 

Southern Door rode their backfield tandem of Jonas Jandrin and Luke Olson, with a dash of Derek Schinktgen. In the first minute of the second quarter, Olson scored from 11 yards out which put Southern Door up, 6-0. For Mishicot, Marquardt returned the ensuing kickoff 70 yards to tie the game at 6 apiece. With over five minutes remaining, Marquardt grabbed his second interception of the night at the Mishicot goalline. On the following play, the Southern Door defensive line answered by sacking Hibbard in the endzone, and gaining an 8-6 lead with the safety. Later in the quarter, Mishicot scored a 38-yard touchdown on a deep ball from Hibbard to Austin Fencl to go up 12-8. 

 

Daoust and the Eagles got the ball back with well under a minute left before halftime, and Daoust launched a pass down to the three-yard line for Jared Hawkey, and Southern Door got a time-out off with a second left. It was enough time for Daoust to punch in a 3-yard touchdown and also get the two-point conversion on a similar play, making the score 16-12 heading into the break. 

 

Midway through the third quarter, Brodie Overbeck blocked a punt which set up Southern Door’s offense to start their next drive at the 41-yard line of Mishicot. Daoust let Jonas Jandrin run under a 31-yard throw for a touchdown to put Southern Door up by two scores, 22-12. With seven seconds left in the third. Mishicot’s Adam Backus got a pick-six and put Mishicot within two points of Southern Door. Jonas Jandrin got the last score of the game with 1:28 remaining, when he ran in a 21-yard touchdown. On the last-chance possession for Mishicot, Taylor Schaefer broke up a pass intended for Fencl to seal the game. 

 

Southern Door is now 1-0 in conference and 3-1 overall. The Eagles head to Bonduel on Friday. The game will be broadcasted on 104.1 WRLU with pregame coverage starting at 6:30 PM.

Southern Door thumped by Colby

Friday night was one to forget for Southern Door football, who lost 52-7 to the Colby Hornets. The Eagles fell behind after the opening drive by Colby, when running back Mason Voss had a four yard touchdown. Southern Door turned the ball over on downs the ensuing drive. The signal caller for the Hornets, Brent Jeske, took a quarterback keeper into the endzone in the first quarter and the score was then 14-0. On the final play of the first quarter, Jeske hit Caden Healy who went up the visitor sideline for a 43 yard touchdown, and after the two point conversion the score was 22-0. The play was set up by an interception by Colby’s Brandon Voelker. 

 

Within a minute of the second quarter starting, Colby added to their lead after an interception by Voss was returned for a score. The pick-six was one of two times Colby forced a Peterson interception. With a 28-0 lead, Colby scored again on a 70-yard run from Jeske, which made the score 34-0. The Colby lead increased to 40-0 with a 21-yard Mason Voss touchdown run shortly before the halftime break. 

 

Drew Daoust played the second half at quarterback as Peterson nursed an injury on the sideline. Early in the second half, Colby’s Grant Oelrich got a strip-sack on Daoust and Colby turned into a 40-yard touchdown run from Voss moments later, to go up 46-0. Luke Olson got his first career touchdown for Southern Door, as the freshman running back scored on a 10-yard dash. Gavin Voss ended the scoring for Colby and made the game 52-7. In a bright spot for Southern Door, defensive lineman Joe Haberli got an interception. The pick happened when Colby had a botched snap on a punt and Haberli intercepted a throw from Tristen Strange. Southern Door is now 2-1 and opens up conference play on the road on Friday, September 10th against Mishicot. 

Southern Door football shuts out Ozaukee

The Southern Door defense stiffened up at each moment Ozaukee threatened to score on Friday in the Eagles 27-0 rout. It wasn’t all smooth sailing from the beginning as Southern Door had two trips where they entered the red zone in the first quarter but neither ended in a score. One possession ended on downs and another resulted in an interception near the goal line by Ozaukee’s Phillip McClarty. With a minute and thirty-seven seconds left in the first quarter the Eagles got on the board with a touchdown pass from outside the red zone on a pass from Jack Peterson to Drew Daoust, who weaved his way through traffic en route to his first of two scores on the night. 

 

In the second quarter Jonas Jandrin got his first touchdown of the season to put Southern up 14-0. With just over a couple of minutes left before half, Peterson hit Daoust for a 31-yard touchdown on a broken play while scrambling to his left. That led the Eagles into halftime with a 21-0 lead. In the second half, Southern Door shut down scoring threats by blocking an Ozaukee field goal from 25 yards out, and forcing a turnover on downs as Ozaukee was in the red zone. Southern Door extended their lead to 27-0 when Jared Hawkey made a big play. Peterson gave Hawkey a chance to make a contested catch and Hawkey was able to tip the ball up to himself and fight for the goal line and the score that would end all hopes of a comeback for the Warriors. 

 

The Eagles are now 2-0 and face Colby on Friday, September 3rd at 7:00 PM in Brussels. 

Eagles football going for 2-0 start against Ozaukee

On Friday, the Eagles hope to continue their early season fortunes when they take on the Ozaukee Warriors. The Eagles will also try to continue the momentum they have behind the center, as Jack Peterson had four touchdowns and running back Jonas Jandrin also helped the Eagles move the ball down the field throughout the season opener against Oostburg. Southern Door won the opener, 25-17. Their week two opponent, Ozaukee, fell 34-13 to Kohler-Shoeboygan Lutheran. 

 

Friday’s game will be broadcasted on WRLU 104.1 FM. Pregame coverage will begin at 6:30 PM with the kickoff coming at 7:00 PM.

Postgame interview with Southern Door head coach Ryan Zuehlke:

 

Four takeaways and four Peterson touchdowns highlight Eagles win

The ambience of a Friday night football game was back in Brussels for the Southern Door season opener of the 2021 season against Oostburg. The Southern Door Eagles won 25-17. The scoring was started by the Flying Dutchmen with a 32 yard field goal in the 1st quarter by Joey Bruggink. Southern Door got on the board with a touchdown pass from just outside the red zone on a fade ball from Jack Peterson to Drew Daoust. After failing the two-point conversion, the Eagles led 6-3. The Eagles appeared to be going into the half with a two-score lead after a touchdown run by Peterson who had four touchdowns total. On the play Peterson reversed field and put Southern Door up 12-3. However, a late first half interception by Oostburg and a quick 60-yard touchdown run by the Dutchmen’s Jay Deblaey with 13 seconds left made the score 12-10 heading into the break. 

 

In the second half the Eagles regained their 9-point lead with an 11-yard touchdown pass from Peterson to Alec Guilette. Oostburg’s Deblaey answered right back going the majority of the field and breaking multiple would-be tacklers on the way to a score that would put the Dutchmen down just 19-17. Peterson got his second touchdown on the ground near the end of the third quarter on a QB draw on fourth and goal from the 4-yard line. The missed PAT would keep Oostburg in the game, and down just 25-17. That would stay the final score however. In the final chance for Oostburg to get a tying touchdown, pressure caused quarterback Donavan DePagter to fumble and hopping on the recovery was Lane Aleson. DePagter was under duress all night as the Eagles caused four turnovers by the signal caller, including three interceptions. 

 

Southern Door is now 1-0 and faces Ozaukee on the road on Friday, August 27th.
