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 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.

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 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.
