VAIL, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

6th ranked Cienega may have been down two starters but that didn’t matter to #4 Ironwood Ridge.

With the match even one set a piece, Ironwood Ridge rallied from a seven-point hole in the third set to win 26-24 and The Ridge rolled that momentum into an important 3-1 road victory over the Bobcats.

The loss avenged a 3-2 setback Ironwood Ridge (18-17) had to Cienega at home on September 27.

The Bobcats (17-11) were playing without starting setter Natalie Lubben and sophomore middle blocker Holly Stutz due to injury.

The missing pieces appear to be taking a toll on the Bobcats as the loss was Cienega’s sixth in seven matches.

Ironwood Ridge with the win took over second place in the Section (5A Southern) behind undefeated Sahuaro.

Only a complete collapse down the stretch would keep the Cougars (5-0 section record) from winning the section title. The Nighthawks (4-2 second record) and Sahuaro meet again on October 20.
