After a win last week against Sturgeon Bay, the Southern Door Eagles are guaranteed at least a share of the new MONLPC. Tonight, they can win the new conference outright with a win in Coleman.
Southern Door won an overtime thriller last week, but suffered a huge loss to their offense. Quarterback Kyle Daoust will miss the remainder of the year with a torn quadriceps injury. Daoust ends his junior season 119-of-198 for 1,555 yards and 15 touchdown passes. No word yet on who will replace Daoust, but according to Head Coach Pat Mccarty, Marcus Marchant and running back Derik LeCaptain could both see reps.
For the Cougars, they are coming off a 47-0 loss to Oconto. On the year, the Cougars have rushed for nearly 2,000 yards and 16 touchdowns and have only scored one touchdown through the air. An offense that will feature double-wings and off-set running backs. leads the conference with rushing yards per game at 248.
Tonight, marks the regular season finale for both teams. Southern Door will advance to the playoffs next week and Coleman will have their season come to an end.
