Mustangs’ season ends short of playoffs

GIRARD —  The dust from Girard’s football field seemed to hover and hang in the air for an eternity on Thursday as the Iola Mustangs marched off the field for the final time in 2017. 

Cries and yells of jubilation from Trojan players and fans followed Iola off the field and into the locker room as Girard’s 25-0  victory over the Mustangs meant they were playoff bound and the Mustangs were not. 

“We just didn’t execute tonight,” Iola head coach David Daugharthy said. “This is a team we should’ve been able to play with. We just didn’t execute. We weren’t blocking our assignments. We’ve been sound the past five weeks offensively, but we weren’t blocking plays right. We also weren’t running through alleys defensively and that hurts.”
