Ironwood Ridge had no problem advancing their way to the second round of the Division II playoffs Friday night. But, the suprise of the night was Mountain View's upset over Cienega.

Mountain View, the ninth seed, battled back from a 17-7 halftime deficit, to defeat Cienega 19-17.

The game came down to kicks, as Mountain View missed all three extra points after touchdowns. Cienega missed a field goal that could have won the game in the fourth quarter.

The Mountain Lions have their work cut out for them in the second round, however, as they will take on the first seeded Salpointe team.
