Door County's new semi-pro football team has its first game on Saturday.
The Door County Destroyers play their first preseason game against the Lincoln-Way Patriots at 4 p.m. Saturday at the Baileys Harbor Recreation Park.
"This is our first chance to show our community and our league what kind of team we will be this season," says owner/player Chris LeCloux. "The team we are playing is no joke and the league they play in is one of the most respected leagues in the Midwest."
Owner/player Ryan Zuehlke expects great things out of the team this season. "With the veterans we brought to this team, and the new local talent we acquired I expect us to have a successful season. I'm grounded a little in the fact that we are a brand new team, but this game should give us a glimpse into what the future holds."
