Southern Door beat Valders, 5-2, in a WIAA Division 3 regional championship game at Valders on Friday. The Eagles (18-2) took the lead in the top of the second on back-to-back two out base hits from Nicole Norton and Jackie Atkins and then added three more in the third inning on a Grace LeGrave RBI ground ball and a two run double from Kendi Dantoin. The Vikings scored a single run in the bottom of the 6th to make it 5-1 and another in the 7th on an RBI single from Lindsey Glaeser. But LeGrave was able to escape a bases loaded, one out jam to preserve the win for Southern Door. Lexi Wery pitched the first 6.1 innings for the win and singled and doubled with DeGrave scoring two runs and Erin Tadych doubled. It’s the third straight regional title for Southern Door- the Eagles will play at Brillion in the sectional semi-finals on Tuesday.
