Peterson's dingers clinches conference crown for Southern Door baseball

Jack Peterson slugged two homers in the game but it was the second one in the top of the eighth inning that gave Southern Door the 11-9 win over Oconto and an outright Packerland Conference championship.


It was a back and forth game all night long against the Blue Devils. Southern Door took lead in the top of sixth on a Tyler Neinas two-run single. Oconto took the lead back in the bottom of the sixth on a ground out and throwing error. To start the top of the 7th with one out, Taylor Schaefer walked and Jack Peterson hit a two-run homer to make the score 8-8 sending the game to extras. In the top of the eighth, Tyler Neinas walked and got to 2nd on a sacrifice bunt by Derik Schinktgen. Later in the inning, he scored on an error hit by Jared Hawkey. Peterson followed up with his second homer to right field to make the score 11-8. Oconto rallied in the bottom scoring one but left the bases loaded.


The win gives Southern Door its second straight Packerland Conference championship as they improve to 16-2 on the season.
