A week ago, Iola High was able to cut down on costly mistakes after halftime, and coasted to an easy victory to start the 2020 season.

There was no such reprieve on Friday.

In an exasperating night that saw both teams miss out on multiple scoring opportunities, visiting Parsons High was able to right its ship just enough down the stretch for a back-breaking 96-yard touchdown drive.
