The Iola Mustangs saw a 20-point lead crumble to pieces during Wednesday night’s first round substate matchup against Louisburg. 

Iola led 50-30 to start the fourth quarter, followed by a Wildcat trey, when senior point guard Calvin Delich received a double-technical foul for comments directed toward the referee. 

The words resulted in Delich’s ejection, and the massive momentum swing Louisburg had been seeking. Though the Wildcats forced the game into overtime, the Mustangs held on for the 77-68 victory.
