Ironwood Ridge has been our No. 1 team the whole season, and that doesn't change this week. The Nighthawks are coming off a bye week, which couldn't have come at a better time. I-Ridge travels north on Friday night to take on a 4-1 Queen Creek team that has the potential to hand the Nighthawks their first loss of the season.
The tough tests don't end after this week, either. The Nighthawks host Mountain View next Friday, and the Mountain Lions are the No. 4-ranked team in this week's poll. I-Ridge's spot on top of our rankings is in jeopardy — at least for this week.
