PARSONS Forty-eight minutes remained in the 2019 season for the Iola Mustangs as they traveled to Parsons for a consolation game. Neither team playing to advance in the playoffs, but for the Mustangs, it was an opportunity to take revenge from a heartbreaking five overtime loss in week one.
Seniors Zane Whitney and Casen Barker propelled the Mustangs ground game en route to a 38-28 victory. Whitney carried 8 times for 110 yards rushing, and Barker finished with 24 carries for 138 yards rushing.
Zane was everywhere on defense, and made a couple big plays on offense, head coach David Daugharthy said. Casen ran the ball really hard all night, and made some plays at linebacker, and Gary Lower played great up front. All three of our seniors had a great night.
