High School Football: Eagles 35, Mustangs 16

WELLSVILLE — The air was misty and full of excitement after a 10-yard Iola rushing touchdown gave the Mustangs their first lead of the season at 9-8 with a little more than 7 minutes to play in the first half Friday against host Wellsville.

After Wellsville housed a 96-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to open the ball game, Iola had been the aggressor on both sides of the ball. The Mustangs grabbed multiple interceptions and had even forced a safety.

But when bodies started dropping early in the second half, Iola (0-2) couldn’t keep up with a tenacious Wellsville (2-0) squad, falling 35-16.
