By Nick Freimuth The Sturgeon Bay Clippers Soccer team distinguished Peshtigo 7-2 in a WIAA regional semi-final at Dick Clark Field last night. Broadcast on 103.3 FM ‘The Clipper,’ Eli Dietzel stole the show. The junior striker scored an incredible three goals (a hat trick) in the first half. He finished the match with five goals in total. Owen Stevenson and Nathaniel Greenlaw each added a goal in the win.
The top two defenders for Sturgeon Bay each drew yellow cards in the match and with WIAA postseason rules can only garner four more in the tournament before having to miss the next game. If they would have been given a second yellow card in the game last night they too would have had to sit out for the next contest in its entirety.
The Clippers will host Lourdes Academy/Valley Christian back in Sturgeon Bay Saturday night. The Door County Medical Center Pre-Match show with Coach Todd Maas will begin at 6:30 PM. The opening tap will follow at 7:00 PM on 103.3 FM.
