Iola softball falls in nailbiter

Iola came up just short on the softball diamond, seeing visiting Chanute score three unearned runs before the Blue Comets wiggled out of a bases-loaded jam to end the game in a 3-1 win over the Mustangs. Iola's three losses this season have come by a combined four runs.

The little things turned into big trouble once again for the hard-luck Iola High softball team.

Fielding errors fed both of Chanute’s scoring rallies, including a crucial two-run sixth inning that propelled the Blue Comets to a 3-1 win.

Iola, which has lost its three games this season by a combined four runs, didn’t allow the Blue Comets to exhale until the final out.
