Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Holmen, Wis. (WXOW)  The Holmen boys soccer team is ready to make history Thursday when they take the field for the first time ever at the WIAA State Tournament.
The Vikings will take a 22-1-1 record with them to Milwaukee.

They’ll take on Oregon, the state runner-up in division 2 last year.
Holmen only loss game in their third match of the season.
They bring a very balanced attack with them.
Five different players have scored at least 10 goals this season.
That makes it tough for opponents to key on just one or two players.

“We don’t really have any studs on the team. We’re a good team all together. We work well together and have good chemsitry,” said midfielder Coleton Strupp.
“A lot of teams represented at State, they have some prolific goal scorers. We don’t have one or two that just put it all on them. We put it on all our shoulders. The defenders help make that possible by defending so well. It makes our forwards relax and put it where they need to,” said head coach Guy Turner.

Holmen and Oregon kickoff at 7 o’clock at Uihlein Soccer Park in Milwaukee.
The winner plays in the division two championship is Saturday.
