The Southern Door Eagles will welcome Michigan’s Menominee Maroons in a non-conference matchup tonight.
The Southern Door Eagles are coming off a dominating performance last week against the Algoma Wolves, winning 49-0. Derik LeCaptain ran for over 80 yards, but was able to reach the end zone twice in the rout. Quarterback Kyle Daoust continued his successful campaign with two passing touchdowns as well. With last week’s win over the Wolves, the Eagles became playoff eligible with every win another opportunity to improve their seed.
The trip to Brussels will be the last trip from the Upper Peninsula for the Maroons, going 3-1 in those contests including a 55-7 blowout over Medford. The Maroons are coming off a state title game appearance last season and will begin their upper peninsula slate of their season when they host Escanaba.
Brett Kinnard and Tim Kowols will have the call on 102.1 MORE FM beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pregame show followed by kickoff at 7.
