Three other players reached double figures, with Sukhjot BainsTJ Parham and Hunter Crisp scoring 10 points. Manny Patterson grabbed eight rebounds and David Jesperson and Will Chevalier combined for another 17 points.

L-C Volleyball team successful in Sectional Final face Merrill at State Friday


By Cynthia Germain




Luxemburg-Casco showed courage and prevailed over Little Chute in the playoff match on Saturday, three games to one (12-25, 25-15, 25-16, 25-13). Megan Cannon had an incredible 43 assists and 10 digs. Alexis Dorner added 17 kills and Megan Thayse had 13 kills. Molly Wotruba led the back row with 24 digs.

Spartans Coach Jeff Frey said, "We came out flat and nervous in game one and got rolled 25-12. When I looked into their eyes after game one, I knew we were going to be fine and we came out clicking on all cylinders in the last three games. I am so proud and happy for these girls. They have battled and worked so hard for this and have truly earned this. I am also happy for all the former players and coaches who have worked so hard and dedicated so much to build this program to this level. We truly are a family!!"

The Spartans will now face Merrill in a state semi-final Friday afternoon at 4 p.m. at the Resch Center in Green Bay.  It is the first Luxemburg-Casco state volleyball appearance ever.

Cardiac Clippers are State Bound After Dominant Performance in Sectional Final



 

By Peter Kerwin




In a match carried live on 104.1 WRLU- FM, and streamed worldwide on DoorCountyDailyNews.com, the Sturgeon Bay Clippers defeated the Wayland Academy Big Red in a WIAA Division 4 soccer Sectional Final on Saturday night. The Clippers dictated the action from the opening tap, but were unable to tally a goal until 86 minutes 35 seconds into the 90 minute contest.

 

On a chilly 38 degree evening in Lomira, a corner kick initiated by sophomore CJ Fairchild proved to be the deciding factor. After taking several corner kicks throughout the match, Fairchild's final attempt triggered the game winning score. Fairchild launched a bending, perfectly lofted ball from the right corner. After passing by the goal, freshman Carson Dvorak rose high off the ground and got a head on the ball from the left post. Dvorak's header bounded back toward the right post. Sophomore Owen Stevenson, positioned near the right post, was able to put his head on the ball played from Dvorak, driving it to the back of the net, and sending the Clippers back to state.

 

The Clippers will play in the state semi-final match on Friday, with their opponent and game time pending the seeding meeting. The outcome of this meeting will be posted on DoorCountyDailyNews.com as soon as it becomes available. Regardless, the match will be broadcast live on 104.1 FM, with Nick Freimuth and Peter Kerwin calling the action from Milwaukee.

Sevastopol captures Jamboree victory over Wausaukee 36-20 on 104.1 WRLU


By Tim Kowols




The Sevastopol Pioneers made it two in a row in the WIAA 8-Man Football Jamboree with a 36-20 victory over the Wausaukee Rangers.

 

Early mistakes put the Pioneers in a 12-0 hole but responded on the following drive with a two-yard touchdown run by Ethan Kroll. Quarterback Jacob Welsing would lead the Pioneers to a 14-12 lead on a 10-yard touchdown pass to Max Krohn and a 2 point conversion.

 

The Pioneers would make the necessary adjustments after halftime to score a pair of touchdowns to put the game out of reach via a 53 yard run by Kroll and 58-yard pass from Welsing to Krohn. The Rangers would get the game to 28-20 following quarterback Matthew Delfosse's third total touchdown on the day with a passing play to Christian Shigouri, but Welsing's third touchdown pass of the day ended the comeback bid.

 

The Pioneers end the season 9-1 and undefeated against conference opponents after defeating the Rangers for the second time.

Sevastopol looks for season sweep of Wausaukee in Jamboree matinee


By Tim Kowols




 

After going nearly their entire program's history without a postseason victory, the Sevastopol Pioneers look to make it two in a row at the WIAA 8-man Football Jamboree this afternoon when they battle the Wausaukee Rangers.

 

Winners of their last six games, the Pioneers look to see how to break through the Rangers defense, which was one of only two teams to hold Sevastopol to under 50 points. It was running back Ethan Kroll who stole the show, gaining 256 yards on just 14 rushes en route to a three touchdown day and a 28-6 victory. The Pioneers last played October 13, a 62-26 rout of their cross-county rival Gibraltar.

 

The Rangers started a five game winning streaking after falling to 0-2 following the loss to the Pioneers before a loss to Gibraltar and a win in the season finale against Bowler/Gresham to crack the final Jamboree slate. Matthew Delfosse is a jack of all trades for the Rangers, scoring 28 total touchdowns on the ground and through the air.

 

Tim Kowols and Sevastopol youth football coach Rob Rankin will have the call on 104.1 WRLU with the pre-game show beginning at 12:30 p.m. and kick off at

By Nick Freimuth

Clippers Soccer Wins Sectional Semi-Final In Shootout


By Nick Freimuth




It took 110 minutes (regulation and two overtimes) and a shootout to determine Thursday night's WIAA Division 4 Sectional semi-final match broadcast on 104.1 FM WRLU. The Clippers pulled off a 4-3 shootout win  after a 2-2 tie after overtime Saint Lawrence Seminary.

 

Tied at 1-1 heading into overtime, the Clippers fell down 2-1 just 1:12 into the first overtime period. Jaden Stevenson scored his second goal of the night six minutes later at the end of the first overtime. It was the senior's 161st career goal. Stevenson is now 12 goals behind the all-time state record.

 

After a scoreless second overtime the shootout was set. The Clippers saw Jaden Stevenson set the stage scoring on the first kick from 12 yards out. Sturgeon Bay fell behind 2-1 and needed another come  from behind effort in a game they never led. Adison Benzinger and Ryan Safranski each made their goals and Trent Maas stopped Saint Lawrence Seminary's fourth penalty kick.

 

Tied at three goals a piece, the Clippers sent goal keeper and senior captain Trent Maas to the line. Instead of a forward or midfielder, the Clippers went with a goalie. Maas stepped up to the line and delivered a goal and a 4-3 lead, but the Hill Toppers had the final shot (Pictured Above). Maas then  had to return to the goal and try to clinch  the Clippers victory. He moved left, the kick went left and he denied the potential game tying goal to lift Sturgeon Bay into the sectional final Saturday in Lomira.

 

Saturday's sectional final will be played on an artificial surface against Wayland Academy. The match will be broadcast on 104.1 FM WRLU and streamed  worldwide at DoorCountyDailyNews.com. Pre-match coverage with Coach Todd Maas starts at 6:30 PM. Opening tap will ensue at 7:00 PM.

Green Bay women's basketball shines in exhibition opener against UW-Whitewater



 

By GreenBayPhoenix.com




The Green Bay women's basketball team took the court for its first exhibition of the 2017-18 season on Thursday night at the Kress Center and displayed balance in the convincing 71-34 victory. The Phoenix had 11 players score in the matchup, with Madison Wolf leading the way with 12 points in 19 minutes. Green Bay's defense really shined in the second half as the squad only allowed nine points in 20 minutes, only two of which were given up in the fourth quarter.


Senior Jessica Lindstrom seemed to pick up right where she left off last season, scoring 11 points and grabbing seven rebounds in 18 minutes. Karly Murphy joined Wolf and Lindstrom in double digits with 10 points of her own. The redshirt freshman also pulled down seven boards in 17 minutes.


The Phoenix came out firing in the opening quarter as the squad constructed a 23-14 lead. Green Bay scored 16 points in the opening quarter and had eight points contributed from its bench.


The active hands of Laken James and Frankie Wurtz combined to swipe 10 steals, with Jen Wellnitz recording four of her own.


The Phoenix defense was relentless against the Warhawks all evening, forcing 28 turnovers, collecting 21 steals and swatting eight shots as a team. Green Bay was able to capitalize on the turnovers it forced and score 32 points on the extra possessions.


Green Bay controlled the paint all night against UW-Whitewater, outscoring the opposition 44-4 and not allowing a single point to be scored in the final three quarters of play. The Phoenix finished the night 25-54 (46.3%), while the Warhawks were held to 8-42 (19.0%).


Green Bay will take the floor on Thursday, Nov. 2 at 7 p.m. as the squad closes out exhibition play with Michigan Tech at the Kress Center.

Packers Sign Wide Receiver McCaffrey To Practice Squad



 

By Green Bay Packers




The Green Bay Packers have signed WR Max McCaffrey to the practice squad and released T/G Don Barclay from injured reserve. The transactions were announced Tuesday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson.

 

McCaffrey, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound first-year player, was originally signed as an undrafted rookie by the Oakland Raiders out of Duke on May 10, 2016, but was released on Aug. 29, 2016. He was signed to the Packers' practice squad on Dec. 20, 2016, and then to the active roster on Jan. 21, 2017, where he was inactive for the NFC Championship game. After being released by Green Bay this season after training camp, McCaffrey spent just over a week on the New Orleans Saints' practice squad before being signed to the active roster by the Jacksonville Jaguars. He played in five games with the Jaguars before being released on Oct. 21. McCaffrey will wear No. 13 for the Packers.

 

Barclay played in 62 regular-season games with 24 starts for the Packers since being signed by Green Bay as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2012. He also appeared in eight postseason contests with three starts for the Packers.

Packers Fans Needing A Pick Me Up



 

By Green Bay Packers




The Packers enter the bye with a (4-3) record. The Week 8 bye is the latest for Green Bay since 2014 when the bye was in Week 9. The Packers are (4-3) this season, marking the fourth straight season and the ninth time under Head Coach Mike McCarthy that Green Bay entered the bye week with a winning record (2-1 in 2016, 6-0 in 2015, 5-3 in 2014, 6-3 in 2012, 7-0 in 2011, 6-3 in 2010, 4-3 in 2008, 5-1 in 2007).

 

The Packers' four wins are tied for the fourth most in the NFC this season. The Packers have won 10 of their last 13 regular-season games and are tied with the Kansas City Chiefs for the third-best record in the NFL over that span (Pittsburgh and New England, 11-2).

State Cross Country Championships Saturday



 

By WIAA



The 105th running of the Wisconsin Interscholastic Athletic Association Boys Cross Country Championships and the 44th Annual Girls Cross Country Championships will take place this Saturday, Oct 28, at The Ridges Golf Course in Wisconsin Rapids. The ticket price for the meet is $6.



The boys and girls will both run a 5,000-meter course. The following is a listing of the scheduled start times for each race:



Girls

Noon – Division 1

12:40 p.m. – Division 3

1:20 p.m. – Division 2


Boys

2 p.m. – Division 1

2:35 p.m. – Division 3

3:10 p.m. – Division 2




There are 20 teams contending for the State championship in Division 1 for boys and girls, and 16 teams competing for the boys and girls Divisions 2 and 3 team titles. Teams competing for the titles qualified last weekend at their respective sectional meets. The top two teams in each of the 10 Division 1 sectionals and the top two teams from each of the eight Divisions 2 and 3 sectionals advanced. In addition to the qualifying teams, the first five individual finishers at their respective sectionals, who are not a member of a qualifying team, also qualified for the State meet.

Packers Second Half Struggles "Disgust" Coach McCarthy


By Nick Freimuth




The Green Bay Packers are now a game behind the Minnesota Vikings in the NFC North following 26-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints at Lambeau Field Sunday. Quarterback Brett Hundley made his NFL debut and impressed with his mobility in the first half. A 14-yard touchdown scamper by temporary leader of the Pack gave Green Bay a 14-7 lead midway through the second quarter.

 

It was Aaron Jones who truly impressed in the first half. On the opening drive he tallied 70 yards including a 46-yard touchdown run. Jones finished with 131 yards on 17 carries. Hundley was the team's second leading rusher with 44 yards.

 

The second half was a different story though. The Saints were able to move the ball with ease. Drew Brees finished the day 27/38 passing for 331 yards with one touchdown and two interceptions. Mark Ingram rushed for 105 yards in the win.

 

Green Bay has the next week off before hosting the Detroit Lions on Monday Night Football on November 6.

No Red Zone Show Tonight


By Nick Freimuth




The bye week has officially begun for the Green Bay Packers, that means NO SHOW TONIGHT. The Jim Olson Motors Red Zone on 104.1 FM WRLU resumes with starting quarterback Brett Hundley and special guest Packers tackle Ulrick John next Monday, October 30.

Packers Sign Safety Whitehead



 

By Green Bay Packers




The Green Bay Packers have signed safety Jermaine Whitehead to the active roster from the practice squad. The transaction was announced Saturday by Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson. The move was in response to moving quarterback Aaron Rodgers to injured reserve.

 

Whitehead, a 5-foot-11, 195-pound first-year player, was originally signed by the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted rookie out of Auburn in 2015. He spent most of his rookie season on the 49ers' practice squad before being signed to the Baltimore Ravens' active roster on Dec. 23, 2015, and was inactive for the final two games. After being waived by Baltimore on May 13, 2016, he signed with Green Bay a few days later. He appeared in two games for the Packers last season, seeing action on special teams. Whitehead was on the Packers' practice squad for the rest of the 2016 regular season and postseason and for the first six games of this season. He will wear No. 35 for the Packers.

Luxemburg-Casco Volleyball Sectional Bound


By Nick Freimuth




Coach Jeff Frey and the Luxemburg-Casco Volleyball team have had a a tremendous season and it's not done yet. The Spartans won their regional final match three games to none over Seymour. The three-game sweep was scored (25-17, 25-14, 25-13). The win pushed L-C's record to (38-8) on the season.

 

Megan Cannon ran the offense dishing out 36 assists and accounting for six kills. Peyton VandenBush had one of her finest games of the season tallying 12 kills and four blocks. Cassie Schiltz contended with regular double blocks yet still racked up 12 kills. Alexis Dorner finished with 10 kills and four aces. Finally, it was the "Molly Wotruba Show" in the back row again with 23 digs and three aces.

 

Coach Frey said, "I thought we played well tonight, weathered the nerves a little early and then played well.  Very excited for our girls to be Regional Champs, but what excites me more is how excited they are to take another shot at Notre Fame next week."

Sturgeon Bay Soccer Wins Regional Title


By Nick Freimuth




The WIAA Division 4 regional championship game was a defensive battle until the final ten minutes. Sturgeon Bay may have won the game 4-0 but it was up for grabs until the closing minutes due to the great defense played by the Storm Saturday night at Dick Clark Field. The game was broadcast on 104.1 FM WRLU and streamed worldwide at DoorCountyDailyNews.com.

 

Jaden Stevenson scored the first and only goal of the first 80 minutes of play. He added two more in the last ten minutes to accomplish a hat trick running his tally up to seven goals in two games. Eli Dietzel scored the other Clippers goal. Jaden is now 14 goals away from tying the all-time state record for goals scored in a career.

 

Sturgeon Bay will play Saint Lawrence Seminary Thursday night in Sturgeon Bay in a sectional semi-final match-up. They topped Lourdes Academy/Valley Christian 2-0 earlier Saturday. The game will begin at 7:00 PM from Dick Clark Field and again will be broadcast on 104.1 FM WRLU.

Badgers own the Big 10 West


By Cynthia Germain




The Wisconsin Badgers had a convincing win over the Maryland Terrapins, 38-13 on Saturday.  The Badgers scored in every quarter and the defense looked strong, holding Maryland to under 300 yards in the game.  The offense had 41 carries for over 200 yards, and Hornibrook made some big throws on 3rd downs in the game.  Taylor racked up 126 yards rushing and broke the 1,000-yard mark for the season, a major record shared by only five other backs in college ball.

 

The Badgers-Terrapins game was the 10th straight Big Ten win, marking the longest streak in school history, and the Badgers are 7-0, a feat not seen since 2004.  Also notable was the fourth interception return touchdown of the season, right out the gate in the first quarter, an achievement not had since at least 1950.  Under heavy pressure, Terrapin's Bortenschlager's pass over the middle was intercepted by linebacker T.J. Edwards and returned 54 yards for a touchdown.

 

Wisconsin goes to Illinois to take on the Fighting Illini on October 28th, kickoff at 11:00 a.m. CT.

Kewaunee Football Loses Opening Round Playoff Game


By Nick Freimuth




Kewaunee football was again unable to escape the first round of postseason football for the fourth consecutive season. The Storm scored first on a 28-yard touchdown run by Lincoln Barta to make it 7-0 Storm early. New Holstein would answer with five consecutive touchdowns before Kewaunee scored the final touchdown of the game, a 15 yard touchdown pass from Cody Boltman to Andrew Richard to make it 32-14 New Holstein.

 

The Storm finished the season (7-3) overall and said farewell to 20 seniors on the roster. The game was broadcast on 104.1 FM WRLU.

Eagles eliminated by Laconia 26-14



 

By Nate Alberts




 
The Southern Door Eagles had their 2017 season come to an end with a 26-14 loss to Laconia Friday.



What looked promising after a 14-6 lead at the half, the Eagles would be shutout in the second half.



On 4th and 10 with 1:58 remaining in the first quarter, Derik LeCaptain and Sam Gerend connected on a 32-yard touchdown for the games first score.



Laconia would get a 75-yard kick return from Jacob Davies on the following kickoff and score three players later on a 7-yard run by Alex Turner. After the failed extra point the score was 7-6. That would be the score after the first.



Southern Door quickly responded with a touchdown of their own, when the Eagles drove the length of the field at the beginning of the second quarter and scored on a LeCaptain one yard run. After Andrew Montana kicked the extra point it was 14-6.



That would be the score at the break.


Laconia's quarterback Cormac Madigan would take over the second half. Madigan scored on the Spartans opening drive of the third quarter on a 36-yard touchdown run. Then gave his team the lead at 20-14 with a 3-yard run at the 1:40 mark.



In the final frame, Madigan capped off the final scoring play with a 46-yard interception return for a touchdown in the fourth.



LeCaptain finished with two touchdowns and three interceptions. Gerend finished with his lone score and broke his older brother Mitchell's record for receptions and yards.



With the win, Laconia will now play Valders next week. Valders upset Howard's-Grove.

By Paul Schmitt




The #6 seeded Luxemburg-Casco Spartans fell to #3 Notre Dame 33-13 Friday night in a W.I.A.A. Division 3 Level 1 playoff game on 96.7FM WBDK.  The Spartans dominated the time of possession in the first half with over 17 minutes compared to Notre Dame's six minutes but could only muster 7 points after missing on two scoring opportunities in the Triton red zone.   Nathan Coisman's opened the scoring on with a 21-yard run late in the first quarter.  The Tritons then scored 17 straight points to take a 17-7 lead.

 

The Spartans came back to close within four points on a 60-yard electrifying touchdown pass from Garrett Aissen to Anthony Otradovec with 5:13 left in the third quarter.  The Tritons responded by outscoring L-C 16-0 in the final 17 minutes to secure the win.

 

Coisman finished with 78 yards in rushing on 15 carries and one touchdown to lead the Spartans rushing attack.  Aissen completed 14 passes on 28 attempts for 179 yards and one touchdown.

 

This is the second year in a row that Notre Dame ended the Spartans season as the Tritons won the Level 3 playoff last year 21-10.   Luxemburg-Casco ends the season 6-4 with 17 seniors on the team that have the distinction of qualifying all four years for the playoffs during their high school career.

Hundley To Make First NFL Start Sunday Vs. Saints


By Nick Freimuth




Packers quarterback Brett Hundley has been waiting patiently for this opportunity for three years now. "Having a mentor like Aaron Rodgers has been a true gift from God," Hundley said after Sunday's game in Minnesota. The former UCLA quarterback had quite the pedigree coming out of Chandler, Arizona. One of the most recruited players in the nation, Hundley appeared twice on the cover of Sports Illustrated while at UCLA.

 

The Packers have used the draft and develop model with Hundley. After one of the most accomplished pre-seasons in the NFL his rookie year, Hundley injured his ankle in his second season and played very little in the pre-season last year. Now in his third season with Coach Mike McCarthy and Aaron Rodgers, Hundley says he has a better grasp of the offense and it ready for this challenge.

 

A full week of preparation with the first string offense will make a difference in his preparedness. In a typical week when Rodgers was healthy, Hundley would see a couple, if any, first team snaps in practice. His chance to shine starts Sunday at Lambeau Field against the New Orleans Saints. All eyes will be on number 7 for the foreseeable future. Hundley is not only playing for the Packers but for 31 other NFL teams that may show serious interest in the young quarterback entering his final year under contract with the Green Bay Packers next season.

 

Brett Hundley is a co-host on the Jim Olson Motors Red Zone and will next appear on Monday, October 30th at Jim Olson Ford on Duluth Avenue in Sturgeon Bay. He will be joined by another member of the Green Bay Packers for the 5:30 – 7:00 PM weekly talk show on 104.1 FM WRLU.

By Green Bay Packers

Callahan, a 6-foot-1, 216-pound second-year player, was originally signed by Green Bay as an undrafted rookie out of Wesley College on May 6, 2016. After being released by the Packers on Oct. 13, 2016, he spent time with the New Orleans Saints and Cleveland Browns on the active roster before being signed to Green Bay's practice squad on Dec. 2, 2016. He was signed to the active roster by the Packers on Dec. 17, 2016, where he spent the rest of the season. After being released following training camp, he has spent the first six weeks of this season on the Packers' practice squad. In 2015, he became the first NCAA Division III quarterback to throw for 5,000 yards in a season, earning the Gagliardi Trophy, the highest award in Division III football.

Injuries Pile Up in Packers Loss To Vikings     


By Nick Freimuth




The Vikings and Packers are now tied atop the NFC North with identical (4-2) records following a 23-10 Minnesota victory Sunday. With 7:04 left to play in the first quarter, Aaron Rodgers left the game with a broken collarbone that may end his season. Lane Taylor then left the game on the next drive with a knee injury. An interception turned into a quick Vikings touchdown followed by a poor punt and another Vikings score had Green Bay looking at an uphill battle early.

 

Clay Matthews got the comeback started with a 60-plus yard fumble recovery to the Minnesota 18-yard line. Brett Hundley made his first career regular season touchdown three plays later to Davante Adams. The 14-yard hookup tied the game at seven all.

 

Quinten Rollins left the game due to an ankle injury on the next defensive series for the Packers and the Vikings capitalized with Jerick McKinnon's second touchdown of the game. The defense rose to the challenge again, however. Blake Martinez tipped a Case Keenum ball that Damarious Randall intercepted setting up a 26-yard Mason Crosby field goal. Green Bay would not score again.

 

The Packers also lost Bryan Bulaga to a concussion and David Bakhtiari to a hamstring injury in the second half. The Packers will host the Saints for a noon kickoff next Sunday at Lambeau Field.

Badgers top off the Boilermakers


By Cynthia Germain




The Wisconsin Badgers showed strong at the start, ultimately winning the game 17-9 against Purdue.  The successful run game was the highlight, leading to two short pass touchdowns in the first quarter.  The first drive of the game resulted in a touchdown, and the offense continued to display their prowess, gaining another touchdown in the quarter.  The Boilermakers had a short answer in the second quarter with a field goal, but the Badgers offered one of their own.  Later in the second quarter, Purdue responded with one more field goal, bringing the score to 17-6 at the half.

 

The Badgers defense looked powerful, holding Purdue to one final field goal in the 3rd quarter.  The offense seemed to stall in the second half, making some unusual mistakes and ultimately not adding any more points to the scoreboard.  Notable in the game was the freshman Jonathan Taylor coming very close to a milestone in college ball.  At the start of the game, he needed only 233 yards to have 1000 rushing yards in the first six games.  There is no doubt that Taylor will make the mark in the next game, joining an elite rank.  The Badgers host the Maryland Terrapins on Saturday.

Wisconsin returns home today against Purdue


By Baxter Colburn




The Wisconsin Badgers (5-0) return to Camp Randall Stadium following their 38-17 victory over the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Wisconsin welcomes B10 foe the Purdue Boilermakers (3-2).

Freshman running back Jonathan Taylor continues to be the catalyst for the Badgers offense with his incredible streak of rushing performances. Taylor ran for 249 yards last week against Nebraska, scoring twice while averaging 10 yards a carry.

Purdue picked-up their first conference win last week as well by taking down the Minnesota Golden Gophers 31-17.

Kick-off at Camp Randall is slated for 2:30 pm CT and can be watched on the B10 Network.

Sturgeon Bay Hopes To End Football Season On High Note


By Nick Freimuth




The 2017 Clippers Football season fell short of expectations yet again. Their (1-7) record was especially frustrating this year due to the fact they lost by just one score in three of their losses. The Clippers are playing better football this season undoubtedly but the results are narrowly avoiding them.

 

Tonight, the Clippers host Algoma also (1-7) on the season. The Wolves also lost one game by just one score but have lost a handful of big blowouts too. It appears the Wolves are eyeing eight-man football if their enrollment allows.  It has been very difficult for both schools to field full varsity and JV rosters for a number of years in a row.

 

Tonight's season finale for these two schools will be played at Memorial Field in Sturgeon Bay at 7:00 PM. The broadcast will begin with the Quietwoods RV Pre-Game Show at 6:30 PM. The game will also be video streamed on FaceBook by liking DoorCountyDailyNews.com.

Eagles Travel To Coleman Tonight, Look For Outright Championship



 

By Nate Alberts



After a win last week against Sturgeon Bay, the Southern Door Eagles are guaranteed at least a share of the new MONLPC. Tonight, they can win the new conference outright with a win in Coleman.

Daoust ends his junior season 119-of-198 for 1,555 yards and 15 touchdown passes. No word yet on who will replace Daoust, but according to Head Coach Pat Mccarty, Marcus Marchant and running back Derik LeCaptain could both see reps.


For the Cougars, they are coming off a 47-0 loss to Oconto. On the year, the Cougars have rushed for nearly 2,000 yards and 16 touchdowns and have only scored one touchdown through the air. An offense that will feature double-wings and off-set running backs. leads the conference with rushing yards per game at 248. 


Tonight, marks the regular season finale for both teams. Southern Door will advance to the playoffs next week and Coleman will have their season come to an end.

By Nick Freimuth




The Green Bay Packers are alone atop the NFC North Division after a 35-31 win in Dallas Sunday. At (4-1) Green Bay is proving they can win despite over a dozen injuries week in and week out. As long as #12 is healthy, Green Bay has a great chance at winning.

Aaron Jones had a tremendous game in his first career start at running back. He carried 19 times for 125 yards and one touchdown.

The Badgers overtake the Huskers for trophy


By Cynthia Germain




The Wisconsin Badgers snapped the winning streak of the Nebraska Huskers with a 38-17 win on Saturday evening, gaining the Freedom Trophy.  The Badgers scored first and remained on top in the first quarter, but an active second quarter brought the Husker's within a touchdown going into the second half.  Nebraska's Aaron Williams returned an interception early in the third quarter to tie it up.  Wisconsin went the running game, scoring again in the third quarter and wrapping up the last quarter with two more touchdowns.  Notable in the game was freshman Jonathan Taylor with a season-high 249 yards rushing and two touchdowns.

 

The first matchup between these two teams was back in 1901 but they did not play each other again for 64 years.  The rivalry then heated up over time leading up to the Big 10 Championship Game in 2012 with the Cornhuskers posting the second-largest comeback in program history to defeat the Badges.  In 2014, the athletic departments of both universities announced the two teams would play for newly created Freedom Trophy, thus cementing the new rivalry status.  The trophy itself is made of bronze and features images of both teams' football stadiums with an American flag in the center.  Half of the stadiums exterior is the East side of Nebraska's Memorial Stadium and the other half is the North section of Wisconsin's Camp Randall Stadium.  The trophy is mounted onto a wooden base where future game scores will be inscribed.

Badgers look to stay undefeated against Cornhuskers


By Baxter Colburn




The Wisconsin Badgers (4-0) can put a firm grip on the B10 West with a victory today at Nebraska. Wisconsin remains undefeated after a 33-22 win at home last week against the Northwestern Wildcats.

Kick-off for tonight's game is at 8:00 pm and can be watched on the B10 Network.

Sturgeon Bay Soccer Defeats To Gibraltar/Sevastopol 6-1


By Nick Freimuth




Sturgeon Bay lit up the scoreboard 6-1 against Gibraltar/Sevastopol Thursday night in highs school boys soccer. It was close at half time as Sturgeon Bay held a slim 2-1 advantage. Nick Voigt scored the lone "Vikineers" goal and was assisted by Will Albertson. Clippers Coach Todd Maas said, "I think our boys are starting to find a groove in our ball possession and attacking half. The ball was moving side to side efficiently, crosses made with pace, and passes for the most part were good. Not great we still turned the ball over way too much, but a least we would battle and get the ball right back."

 

Maas continued,"Gibraltar has improved from the previous years and throughout this year. (They are) well-disciplined to keep the ball in front of them, and not get out of shape. They made it difficult to get a clean look into the 18 because of all the guys they had playing defense, but it's a tactic that works and makes it hard on our guys. The second half I thought we were more efficient on our transitional play to get in early before they organized. Which was something we talked about at half. All in all a good game from our guys and a strive forward again to where we need to be.

 

Sturgeon Bay had 28 shots on goal to Gibraltar's two. The Clippers had 22 22 crosses and seven corner kicks. Gibraltar did not have any crosses or corner kicks.

 

It will be a big final week of the regular season for Sturgeon Bay with games against Peshtigo, L-C, and Preble.

The Sturgeon Bay boys soccer team took down Fox Valley Lutheran 5-1 over the weekend. Coach Todd Maas said, "It's seems our boys found a little mojo the first half of our Homecoming Game. It was a lot better than we have been playing for a while. Connecting passes, movement was good, our attacking third was efficient, and we put some nice goals together."

 

Owen Stevenson scored two goals, Ryan Safranski, Jaden Stevenson and Eli Dietzel each scored one goal in the win.

 

Coach Todd Maas added, "If and when we can put it all together I like the way this team moves the ball, it's fun to watch. I'm happy with the guys that we got an entire first half of quality instead of pieces and parts. Now we need to put together an entire game."

Brewers loss dashes hopes of a wildcard spot


By Cynthia Germain




The post-season hopes of the Brewers came to an abrupt end on Saturday night with a 7-6 loss to the Cardinals.  The first seven innings looked more than promising with a 6-4 lead.  The third inning was the most exciting with five of the six runs against Cardinals' Luke Weaver.  Ryan Braun came off a dry spell, delivering an RBI double. Travis Shaw followed with a two-run single, and Domingo Santana finalized the scoring party with his 30th home run of the season.  The Cardinals answered at the bottom of the inning with four runs of their own.

 

At the bottom of the 8th, the Cardinals rallied against the Crew with relievers Josh Hader and Anthony Swarzak allowing three additional runs.  The day came to a quick close with a shutdown ninth.  The Brewers play the final game of the series today at 2:15 p.m. at Busch Stadium.  Zach Davies would be on the mound if the Brewers were still in the running, but they will now hand the ball to rookie Aaron Wilkerson to close the season.
