The friendly confines of Iola’s Riverside Park were anything but Saturday for Iola High’s Mustangs.

In their first home game since Sept. 11, the Mustangs saw visiting Girard lead 14-0 after one quarter and 34-0 at the break.

A 35-yard touchdown pass from Bradyn Cole to TJ Taylor with just under 4 minutes left on the clock was the Mustangs’ only opportunity to dent the scoreboard in a 48-7 defeat.
