GARNETT — In a tale of two halves, the Iola Fillies finished on the short end of the stick in their season opener against Anderson County Friday evening. After trailing by two to close the first half, Iola failed to keep pace with the Bulldogs in the second, losing 48-31. 

Four fresh faces filled the Filly starting five. Returning senior Kelsey Morrison was joined by Hannah Gardner, Becca Sprague, Lauryn Holloway and Elysia Kunkler. 

Kunkler rained in a long-range effort to give Iola the first points of the game, but Anderson County responded with a quick 5-0 run. Morrison tied things at 7-7 with 1:18 remaining in the first, but a 3-pointer at the buzzer from Rayna Jasper put AC ahead heading into the second.
