FRONTENAC — As it often does in the game of basketball, it all came down to a single possession for the Iola Fillies, who ended their season Thursday with a 67-63 loss to Frontenac in the 4A-II Sub-State semifinals.
With 11.2 seconds left to play, the Fillies found themselves down two after overcoming a double-digit deficit just a quarter before.
Iola took it down the court and lost the ball on the sidelines after the Raiders’ defensive pressure hit. Frontenac hit two free throws in two separate trips as the seconds ticked down to clinch the game.
