NEODESHA — In Iola’s win over Cherryvale on Monday, when the game entered crunch time, the ball seemed to bounce their way. 

On Tuesday, the Fillies (5-5)  had to face the cold reality of the other side of that coin in their 40-35 loss to No. 10 in 2A Leon-Bluestem in the semifinal round of the Wilson County Classic. 

“We could’ve given up but we really battled hard,” head coach Becky Carlson said. “I’m proud of their effort but we’re all a little disappointed.”
