The Southern Door Eagles traveled to Algoma to take on the Wolves in the fifth episode of high school football. Southern Door won the game 16-7 in what was an outstanding game for the defense.
Southern Door jumped out to a lead in the game with a 24-yard field goal by Alex Montana. Algoma would answer immediately with an 87-yard kickoff return for a touchdown. That would be Algoma’s first and only score of the game.
The Eagles would pull away in the second half as they attacked the ground. It was a pair of rushing touchdowns by Derik LeCaptain to put the game out of reach. The Southern Door defense would force six total turnovers on the night. Derik LeCaptain led the way with 182 yards on the ground and four forced turnovers on defense. Nick Baudhuin would add 70 yards on the ground as well.
Southern Door will now travel to Menomonie to take on the Maroons in a non-conference matchup. The Door County Medical pregame show will begin at 6:30 with live coverage beginning at 7.
