After a shocking defeat to Great Bend on Thursday, the A Iola Indians had one last chance to keep their semi-final hopes alive on Friday at the Junior American Legion Kansas State tournament.
Trailing by two runs, the Indians rallied back to win 8-2.
On Thursday, the Indians intended to follow up their shutout win against Marysville Wednesday night with another stellar outing against Great Bend. Earlier in the season, Iola played Great Bend in a wood-bat tournament and comfortably won 9-2. Unfortunately, a repeat performance was not in the cards.
