The 5A Southern Region is one of the most difficult gauntlets in the state and only one team will survive to earn the automatic berth to the state playoffs. Cienega (4-0), Ironwood Ridge (4-0), Buena (3-1) and even a one-win Sahuaro (1-3) squad will make things difficult for Marana Mountain View (3-1) down the stretch. Wins will be hard to come by.

Knowing the difficulty of region play, the Mountain Lions need to win as many “freedom” games as possible in order to secure one of the nine at-large berths available in the 5A Conference and the program picked up a very important win Friday night at home against Tucson High, 42-20….
