Kewaunee beat Southern Door, 15-12, in a WIAA Division 5 playoff game in Brussels on Friday Night. The Storm, trailing 12-7 in the fourth quarter, stumbled into good fortune when quarterback Mitchell Thompson slipped on the snap and the ball found reserve running back DJ Echols who turned it into a game winning 72 yard touchdown with 6:08 to play.
Kewaunee opened the scoring on a short td run from Thompson but the Eagles (11-1) answered with a Drew Daoust td to close to within 7-6 after a failed two point conversion. Southern Door would take the lead moments later as a Jack Peterson interception set up a 5 yard td run from Zack Lynch.
Kewaunee (11-1) will play defending D5 state champion La Crosse Aquinas (11-1) next weekend.
