PREPS: Heading home with a win

ORO VALLEY, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Mountain View senior defender Laura Pimenta turned offensive in the final four minutes against rival Ironwood Ridge.

Pimenta sent two headers past Nighthawks goal tender Megan Logue, the second coming in the 80th and final minute of the match to allow the Mountain Lions (5-1) to come roaring back for a 2-1 win.

Ironwood Ridge (6-2) had taken the lead early in the 2nd half win Jessica Nelson's somersaulting in-bound pass took a high bounce off the hands of Lions goalie Shelby Penrod and in to the back of the net.

Pimenta scored the first of her two goals when she was able to connect off a similar somersaulting in-bound from Mariah Desmarais, tying the match at 1-1.

The winner came off a scrambling side in-bound kick from Justene Kesterson as the game clock ticked inside the final 35 seconds.
