It’s safe to say the Horizon Huskies had the magic formula against Ironwood this season.

Ironwood entered the 5A state playoffs with 21 wins and a tie as its only blemish. The Eagles were favored to win the championship as the No. 1 seed. 

But there was one more blemish that got in Ironwood’s way Saturday afternoon, and it came from the same team.

In a rematch of their regular season 2-2 tie, Horizon took down Ironwood in convincing fashion with a 4-1 victory in the state title game at Dobson High School. 

“This is just really special,” Horizon head coach Rafael Saragosa said of the victory.”We’ve had a lot of history with Ironwood and obviously they’re a great team, so this means a lot.”
