If onalaska wins they win the title with a perfect 6-0 record.
If holmen wins, those two and sparta have a three way tie for first.
Both teams love to run, and each want to make the other beat them through the air.
And the biggest thing i heard this week is travis kowalski of holmen saying this onalaska team is the best he's seen in the last 12 years.
