CHANUTE — The Iola Mustang offense was non-existent on Friday in Chanute. Ty Bowman and the Blue Comets cruised past the Mustangs early on, and didn’t look back.

After a quarter of play, the Mustangs found themselves in a three-score hole, and were shut out 42-0 to make the losing streak 31 consecutive games against their rival. 

The Blue Comets started with the football, but Iola’s defense stood firm to prevent Chanute from getting into the end zone. Unfortunately for the Mustangs, they were backed up inside their own 5-yard line. After an Iola three and out, Chanute quickly got on the scoreboard to take an early 7-0 lead.
