MADISON, Wis. (CBS 58) -- It's a day that's been 34 years in the making.

The last time they won a state final was 1988. But they made the wait worth it at Camp Randall Stadium. Dylan Portz' 68-yard touchdown run caps a 24-point first half, and from there, it's all cruising for the Lasers to the Division II state championship.

"I thought we executed it really well obviously," said senior quarterback Chase Spellman. "That was probably our best offensive performance this year, and it came on the biggest stage, the biggest moment when we needed it. This is a tough team. Really solid defense and brought lots of pressure and mixed up their coverage. It was fun to go against them. They are a great team. But we just played super good. I'm so proud of everybody."

"Yeah it's crazy. I don't know that it's hit yet. But it's definitely exciting," said Kettle Moraine head coach Matt McDonnell. "It's been 34 years. I think that's a year older than me, so that's crazy."

So southeast Wisconsin gets its first state championship of the year. After Catholic Memorial and Mayville's loss, Kettle Moraine takes home the hardware in Division II.
