The preview

Iola has relied heavy on its defense and the offensive combination between quarterback Blake Driver and Andrew Crenshaw.

Burton started the season well but were steamrolled a by a couple of state championship contenders. Their defense is better than it has shown in the past two weeks.

Key to victory

This game will be decided in the trenches on both sides of the ball. Whoever controls the line of scrimmage will come away with the victory. Driver will need time to connect with his go-to receiver Crenshaw.
