MOUNT HOREB -- Nate Thompson scored twice as second-seeded Mount Horeb defeated the seventh-seeded Lake Mills boys soccer team 3-1 in a WIAA Division 3 regional final on Saturday afternoon.

The L-Cats (15-3-1 overall) fell behind 2-0 after a ninth minute score by Peter Cullen and 30th minute goal by Thompson, who also scored in the 62nd minute.

L-Cat senior Brayden Ciesiolka scored unassisted in the 75th minute for the final margin.

Lake Mills bids farewell to a distinguished group of seniors, one that helped the program to its first state tournament appearance in 2019, also reaching last season's sectional final. The L-Cats are 38-16-5 overall in the last three seasons.

The Vikings advance to face sixth-seeded McFarland, which beat third-seeded Sugar River in penalty kicks on Saturday, in Thursday's sectional semifinal.
