High school football play-offs resume tonight with the Level 3 Round pitting the Amherst Falcons against Southern Door in Division V.
It’s another unfamiliar opponent for the Falcons this week, as they try to work their way back to Madison for a second straight year. The Eagles of Southern Door were champs of the Packerland Conference, and knocked off Bonduel last week to get to Level 3. Amherst coach, Mark Lusic, says the Eagles want to run the ball, but watch out for senior receivers Mitch Gerand and Trevor Hawkey.
The Falcons got to the perimeter often against Winnebago Lutheran Academy in their win last week. Now at Level 3, Lusic says it’s time to turn it up a notch.
You can hear tonight’s game on AM 800 WDUX. Terry Nellis and Jack Barry have the call from Goerke Field in Stevens Point. Pregame at 6:40, kick-off at 7pm.
In other Level 3 games tonight, Almond-Bancroft is hosting Coleman in Division 7. You can hear that game on FM 92.7. Still alive in Division III, the Xavier Hawks host Green Bay Notre Dame. In Division IV, Wrightstown is at Freedom and Winneconne plays at Omro.
