Iola’s second half comeback falls short on homecoming

The Mustangs scored all of their points in the second half, a three-week trend. Eli Adams jump-started the team with a kick-off return to the end zone.

The Iola Mustangs dropped their homecoming football game to Burlington on Friday, 20-18.

Even with the defeat, the Mustangs may have found a second-half identity. Iola outscored the Wildcats 18-7 in the second half. Last week, the Mustangs outscored Anderson County 21-0 in the second half. 

Burlington got on the scoreboard first when Cam Stadel rushed the ball in from one yard out for a 7-0 Wildcat advantage with seven minutes left in the first half.
