Eagles football can't corral Cougars on 102.1 MORE FM

The Southern Door Eagles could not get their running game going and could not stop Coleman’s in a 44-0 defeat Friday night on 102.1 MORE FM. The Cougars defense kept Nick Baudhuin and the Eagles in check for most of the game outside of a 55 -yard passing play by Alex Daoust in the game’s opening minutes. Stopping that drive inside their own red zone propelled the Cougars on their first drive, which was capped off by a touchdown run by quarterback Cayden Bintz. In the second quarter, Bintz and Zach Cops would score on touchdowns from inside the 10-yard line to make it 24-0 at the half. Owen Kinziger and Tyler Blanchard would add third-quarter scores before Zach Cops added his second touchdown of the game in the closing minutes. The Eagles return to action next Friday for its homecoming football game showdown against Oconto. That game can be heard on 102.1 MORE FM beginning at 6:30 p.m. followed by kickoff at 7 p.m.

Culver's Student Athlete of the Week: Southern Door's Nick Baudhuin

He may have not known before walking off the field last Friday where he would be in Southern Door football lore, but junior Nick Baudhuin is not a stranger to the running backs that came before him. Baudhuin broke the school’s single-game rushing yards record and tied another for rushing touchdowns in a game against Crivitz when he galloped for 403 yards on 37 carries and six scores. The man who owned the record he broke, former NFL lineman Jim Flanigan, has his jersey hanging in Southern Door’s weight room. Baudhuin also struck up friendships with former Eagles players that also dominated the position, including current Minnesota walk-on Derik LeCaptain. After the game, Baudhuin says he gave the credit to the guys ahead of him.

Also competing in basketball and track at Southern Door, Baudhuin says his favorite subject in school is science and has not yet thought of what he wants to do after high school. Southern Door’s next game is this Friday against Coleman.

Eagles get first victory on parent night on More FM 102.1

The Southern Door Eagles pulled out their first win in the 2019 season defeating Crivitz 39-14. It was parent night at Southern Door and the players put on a performance for their families. Running back Nick Baudhuin had a career night for the Eagles. The junior running back had 28 rushes for 392yds, a new school record, and scored all 6 touchdowns for Southern Door which tied the school record. 
The Eagles were able to get on the board about midway through the first quarter on a 26yd touchdown run by Baudhuin. The Wolverines were able to answer in the second quarter, scoring on a 16yd pass from QB Jaden Werner to WR Dawson Andrist; Wolverines converted a 2pt conversion to take an 8-7 lead. The Eagles did not let that lead last long though, going ahead 13-8 on a 7yd touchdown run by Baudhuin. Baudhuin would add another 13yd touchdown which gave the Eagles a 19-8 lead but the Wolverines would not go away easy. Crivitz scored with about 30 seconds left in the first half cutting the lead to 19-14.
In the second half though it was all Nick Baudhuin; the Eagles running back added 3 more scores from 31, 38, and 1yd respectively. The Eagles defense was just as good; they held the Wolverines offense to only 160yds as a whole. 
Southern Door (1-2) will look ahead to their next matchup at Coleman on September 13th. The game will broadcast on More FM 102.1. Pregame show begins at 6:30 PM with kickoff coming at 7 PM.

Eagles lose second straight on 102.1 FM

The Southern Door Eagles traveled to Wausau to take on the Wausau East Lumberjack but unfortunately lost 24-7. The Lumberjacks opened up the game with an onside kick that completely caught the Eagles off guard. Wausau East capitalized and marched down the field, scoring on a 1yd QB sneak by Matt Heinrich. 

The Eagles started to find their footing in the second quarter but could not capitalize on a strong drive which ended in a missed field goal attempt. The Lumberjacks added a field goal right before halftime to make the score 10-0. Coming out of the break, Lumberjacks RB Donovan Leverete scored on a 48yd touchdown that put Wausau East up 17-0. Southern Door responded though, scoring on a 1yd QB sneak by Alex Daoust to cut the score to 17-7. Donovan Leverete did not let that score last long though as he put the Lumberjacks up 24-7 with a monster 72yd touchdown run with about eight minutes left in the fourth quarter. The Eagles had one last chance to put some more points on the board but unfortunately turned the ball over on downs after QB Alex Daoust came up about 2yds short on a broken play scramble.

Southern Door baseball coach proud of great season

Southern Door baseball was young and very successful in 2019 according to the manager. Dave Neinas was very proud of his team for the way they performed going 10-8 overall and 10-6 in the Packerland Conference. That was good for a third-place finish only behind Sturgeon Bay and Peshtigo. The Eagles had two First Team All Packerland players and four on the second team. All but one of those will be back for next season. Neinas says he’s really excited about almost the whole team coming back for next year.



Neinas says he greatly appreciates the accomplishments of the two seniors from last year as well. One was Derik LeCaptain who was one of the two on the team on the First Team All-Conference.

Culver's Door County Student-Athlete of the Week: Southern Door's Lexi Wery

According to Southern Door softball coach Courtney Renard, Lexi Wery’s work to start the state semifinal game last Friday at Goodman Diamond in Madison began in the offseason. Wery worked hard to get stronger and work on her location prior to this year’s campaign. In the playoffs, she shut out two teams before giving up three runs (one earned) in Friday’s 3-0 loss to Campbellsport in the state semifinal game. Playing softball since she was eight years old, the state semifinal was the culmination of a lifetime of memories with many of her teammates. Speaking before the state tournament, Wery reflected on her favorite thing about softball.

Wery will have more opportunities to make memories in Madison this fall when she attends the University of Wisconsin to study molecular biology where she hopes to begin a career in cancer research.
