TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The big home night facing ranked opponents did not end the way Ironwood Ridge had hoped.

The 3rd ranked girls soccer team scored three goals against #1 and four-time defending state champion Catalina Foothills, the most the Falcons have allowed all season. But even that wasn't enough.

Catalina Foothills (17-1-2) blitzed the home team with four first half goals and held off The Ridge 5-3.

The victory was the second this season for the Falcons  over the Nighthawks (13-4-1) who they beat 4-0 early in the season at the Brandon Bean Classic.

Catalina Foothills is attempting to win a fifth state championship in a row. They have won the Division II title in both years of its existence (2012 and 2013) and won the final two Class 4A Division I championships (2010 and 2011).

Meanwhile in the Nighthawks gymnasium, #10 Cholla's Jorge Carrasco scored 23 points as the Chargers took control in the third quarter and held off 14th ranked Ironwood Ridge 50-47.

The diminutive point guard continually drove the hole aggressively taking on the Hawks big men inside.

Senior captain Luis Rodriguez added 17 points as the Chargers (19-4) avenged an early season loss to Ironwood Ridge at the Salpointe Tipoff Classic.
