The Southern Door Eagles will wrap up the first half of their Packerland conference play against Green Bay NEW Lutheran Blazers Friday night.
Southern Door knocked off the only former undefeated team remaining in the conference, defeating Kewaunee 63-59. Drew Daoust was spectacular in that matchup, leading the Eagles with 29 points on 9 for 12 shooting. Jared Hawkey was critical to the Eagles success down the stretch, hitting every free throw on the night, going 7 for 7. Southern Door’s defensive ability can cause problems to any team in the Packerland, and should be something the team relies on the rest of the season.
NEW Lutheran is having another strong season, led by the duo of Elijah Meerstein and Tristan Lynch. The Blazers blew out the Sevastopol Pioneers last time on the court, as they won in decisive fashion, 104-32. Lynch and Meerstein combined for 43 of the 104, but the Blazers showed their depth in that matchup as well.
Height in this matchup will be the storyline, as NEW Lutheran has 10 players over the height of 6’0”, and Southern Door has 12.
Gary Barta will be on the call from Southern Door on 103.3 The Clipper, 96.7 WBDK HD-2, and NEWRadioSportsNetwork.com. The pregame show is set for 7:15 P.M. with tipoff set for 7:30 in a Packerland showdown.
