WEST SALEM, Wisconsin (WXOW) For the 3rd straight season the West Salem/Bangor hockey team will play in the sectional finals.
On the same rink, where they upset set Wisconsin Rapids, the Panthers will take on a familiar foe for a chance to experience the Magic of March.
West Salem and Onalaska square off Saturday at 4pm for a chance to play for a trip to state.
The Panthers and Hilltoppers met once this year, with Onalaska scoring a 2 to 1 win on the road.
"We have been rivals for as long as I can remember, even in youth league, just to get a shot to play them again to possibly head to state, it's just awesome," said Panthers defenseman Kieran Young
"We know how they play, so we know what to look forward too, but it will be a good game, we will see, they are a good team but we know what were matched up against though," said Panthers defenseman Dylan Campbell.
"It's a good feeling, we have worked hard the kids have worked hard you know this is where we wanted to be so were really hoping to put together a good show tomorrow," said head coach Bob Monroe.
