Southern Door took a 35-0 lead into halftime and never looked back beating the Algoma Wolves 49-0 Friday night.
Adam Gutschow got the Eagles scoring started with a 1-yard run at the 5:37 mark in the first quarter following a defensive turnover. That would be the only score in the quarter.
The second quarter was the best second quarter the Eagles played all year. The defense forced four turnovers including a 42-yard strip fumble touchdown by defensive lineman Jason Columb. On the offensive side Kyle Daoust threw a 19-yd touchdown to Andrew Montana and running back Derik LeCaptain had two rushing touchdowns with a long of 27-yards. At the half Southern Door lead 35-0.
In the third quarter, with a running clock, Southern Door marched down the field on their opening possession and scored on Daoust’s second passing touchdown this time to Sam Gerend from 10-yards out. That would be the only score in the third and the Eagles lead 42-0.
In the final quarter Adam Gutschow, on the punt team, recovered a punt in the end zone after a ball deflected off a Wolves player for the games final score.
On the night the Eagles defense recorded 6 turnovers and have caused 14 in three games.
Next week the Eagles will host Menominee Michigan in a non-conference matchup at Southern Door.
