WMBD/WYZZ-TV - NORMAL, Ill. - Normal West opens sectional play Tuesday and the Wildcats can't wait.

"Now our goals have sky-rocketed even more," said senior defender Tess Marcordes after West beat U-High 4-1 for the regional title Friday. "We've worked so hard. We just want to keep going and playing hard to see how far we can go."

West, which won the sectional last spring, will play Mattoon at 6 p.m.

"We love the competition, we love being in these situations. This is the best soccer to play in," said junior forward Kelly Theobald. "It's so much fun to watch, so much fun to play in. We wouldn't trade it for the world."
