Prep football: Reedsville rolls past Southern Door


Brock Gilsdorf threw for two touchdowns and ran for another to propel host Reedsville past Southern Door on Friday 33-15.

Gilsdorf scored first with his legs, taking it in from four yards out before teammate Elliott Ebert scored on a 35-yard touchdown run of his to put the Panthers up 14-0 early.

The Eagles narrowed the deficit to 14-7 after one quarter on a 37-yard touchdown pass but Gilsdorf connected on a seven-yard strike to Tyler Schuh in the second as Reedsville took a 20-7 lead into halftime.

A 39-yard bomb to Ebert from Gilsdorf in the third quarter followed by a Dakota LeCaptain one-yard plunge in the fourth put the game out of reach for Southern Door. The Eagles would add a one-yard touchdown run of their own to cut down the final margin.

Ebert finished with a team high 104 yards on the ground on 16 carries while his 39 yard touchdown pass was also best among Panther receivers. Gilsdorf completed 3-of-8 for 47 yards but made his competitions count with the two scores.

Next up for Reedsville is a date with rival Valders on the road.
