WELLSVILLE — The Iola Mustangs had a tough go of it Friday, falling to the Wellsville Eagles, 48-7.
It wasn’t a pretty night for Iola (1-1) in any aspect of the game. The team allowed many big plays on the ground and through the air defensively and turned the ball over on numerous occasions offensively. The game-capping play came on an Iola fumble scooped up by Wellsville’s Jake Taylor around the Mustangs 18-yard line with six minutes left in the game.
Wellsville began its onslaught early in the first quarter when quarterback Willie Dorsey found Brody Lee out wide to the left side of the field for an Eagles touchdown and 7-0 lead.
