[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”From the Match Preview” title_align=”separator_align_left” color=”orange”][vc_column_text]The Millers (11-4-3) are in the state soccer tournament for the first time since 1989, when a team led by John Sylvester made it to the quarterfinals. It is the Millers’ seventh appearance in the tournament, dating back to six appearances throughout the 1980s, but never winning a championship. On the way to state this year, the Millers defeated St. Louis Park, 3-0, #1 section seed Wayzata, 2-1, and #2 section seed Minneapolis Southwest, 2-1. The Millers have outscored opponents this year 68-19 and have not lost a match by more than one goal in the last two years.
Minnetonka is 16-3-0 entering the tournament, having defeated Shakopee, Eden Prairie, and Bloomington Jefferson in sectional playoffs. It is Minnetonka’s fourth appearance in the state tournament, where they made the final once, in 1999, losing 1-0 to Edina. In last year’s tournament Minnetonka lost 2-1 in the quarterfinal to unseeded Anoka, the team that later went on to win the championship.
The Miller captains have declared an #OrangeOut for the match, so wear orange, bring orange, eat an orange. Whatever it takes![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][image_with_animation image_url=”4986″ alignment=”center” animation=”Fade In From Bottom” img_link_large=”yes” img_link_target=”_self” delay=”150″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][tabbed_section][tab title=”Washburn Millers Varsity Roster” id=”1444760928134-213a7-454c” tab_id=”1445788235892-2″][vc_column_text][table “56” not found /]
