High School Baseball: Mustangs 11, Bulldogs 1; Bulldogs 6, Mustangs 4
For the first time in what seems like forever, the Mustangs didnt have it.
Thursdays split versus Independence (11-1 win, 6-4 loss) to end the regular season marked exactly eight weeks to the day since Iola opened its season with a road 4-3 loss to Chanute. In that time, they won games of all sorts. Close games, blowouts and close games that felt like blowouts thanks to Iolas pitching and defense.
It had gotten to the point that the Mustangs loss to Chanute, which was then separated from the rest of the season by nearly a month of postponements thanks to bad weather, seemed almost like an aberration. A mirage. A desert in the middle of an oasis.
