Madison West boys soccer beat Kettle Moraine 2-0 Saturday in the D1 Sectional Finals. For the first time since 2008, the Regents are heading to state.

If you take a peek at the latest coaches poll, you won't find West in the top five. According to team leaders that's okay with them.

"I think we can beat anyone in the state" says senior Ryan Mooney.

Senior Trevor Stewart adds that just because West is considered the underdog in the tournament, doesn't mean they're going there expecting to lose.

"The goal is to raise a trophy at the end of the day."

Mooney, Stewart, and their teammates are out to prove that "West is the best" when they take to Uihlein Park Friday night against Green Bay Preble.
