The Southern Door High School girls basketball team picked up a win in the curtain jerker of the 2019-2020 season on Friday night. The final score saw Southern Door fly past Roncalli, 56-42. The Jets are a proud program but finished in last place in the Eastern Wisconsin standings a year ago. There were a couple of things that made the win stand out though.
First, it was a road contest for a Southern Door team that has been practicing for roughly 10 days and has yet to get a chance to gel. Secondly, Roncalli has already had a regular season game, losing to Bonduel on Tuesday night. Practices and scrimmages can only prepare a team so much. Getting a game that counts under your belt before your opponent provides a distinct advantage. Southern Door's next game is Saturday at Little Chute before they get a game in Brussels.
