BURLINGTON ? Despite another gritty performance, the Iola Fillies came up short once more in Tuesday?s contest against Burlington.
Iola inched the Wildcat deficit down to one in the fourth quarter with five minutes remaining, but failed to convert from the field the rest of the way, losing 36-44.
In the early goings Burlington shot out to 6-0 lead, but a 3-pointer from Elysia Kunkler got the Fillies on the board and within three. Having Kunkler back after missing Saturday?s game with injury was a major boost for the Fillies. Kunkler finished as Iola?s second-leading scorer with eight points.
