Washburn Millers v. Rosemount Irish

November 1, 2016 • 2:00pm • US Bank Stadium

This will be the first meeting between the Millers and the Irish.

Rosemount, currently ranked 2nd in Class AA through the QRF ranking system, ended the regular season with a 15-1-2 record, losing only once, to Lakeville North. The Irish also defeated Eagan twice, first during the regular season in a 2-1 victory and then a repeat 2-1 victory over the Wildcats to capture the Section 3AA title. Rosemount is making its fifth state tournament appearance, and this year marks its first tournament appearance since 1997.

Washburn is ranked third in Class AA girls soccer (QRF) and is seeded third overall in the Class AA State Tournament, behind East Ridge and Rosemount. The Millers come into the match with a 17-1-1 overall record, having defeated top-seeded Wayzata 3-1 in a come-from-behind victory to capture the 6AA championship and then defeating St. Michael Albertville 2-1 in the state quarterfinal match. Washburn has outscored opponents 69-13 this season and has given up only three goals in its last 10 matches. This is the Millers’ twelfth appearance in the state tournament and the first since 2014, when they finished second to Orono in the Class A final.

The Irish play in the South Suburban Conference along with Eagan, Lakeville North, and Burnsville. Washburn is the undefeated Minneapolis City Conference champion.
