The Southern Door Eagles once again hope to start their season on the right foot when it hosts Winneconne on 102.1 WRKU tonight. The Eagles opened their successful 2016 season against the Wolves with an impressive 32-6 victory. With Tory Jandrin and Nick LeCaptain graduating last year, the Eagles will look to Derik LeCaptain for leadership as a junior after a strong sophomore season as running back. The Eagles finished last year 10-1 with the only blemish coming in level 2 of the WIAA playoffs against Winnebago Lutheran in a 10-7 heartbreaker. The Wolves went 2-7 last year, including a 0-5 mark on the road. The pre-game show on 102.1 WRKU with Mark Kanz and Tim Kowols begins at 6:30 p.m. with kickoff live from Brussels starting at 7 p.m.
