After a near impossible comeback in game 1, the A Iola Indians routed Chanute in game 2, and earned a split in Wednesday’s American Legion doubleheader at Riverside Park. 

Iola dropped game 1, 8-9 and took game 2 with ease, 6-1. 

Chanute struck first by picking up two runs in the top half of the first inning. The Indians responded in the second inning. Dillon Slaven smacked a grounder to the Chanute shortstop, allowing Dillon Bycroft to score off a Chanute error. Same story for the tying run. TJ Taylor’s grounder to third was mishandled by Chanute’s third baseman which allowed Slaven to score.
