A slow start littered with turnovers was too much for the Iola Fillies to overcome in their season opener against St. Marys Colgan on Monday night.
The Panthers suffocating defense held Iola to a single point in the first period, and comfortably finished off the Fillies 35-21 by the end of things.
We were just rattled from the start, head coach Becky Carlson said. Their defense controlled us. Colgan has great defense, and probably the best we have seen all season. We just couldnt handle their pressure very well.
