Iota too much for North Vermilion

LEROY – Midway through the season, and with District 4-4A play a week away, the North Vermilion Patriots stand poised for their new adventures in Class 4A.
But what coach Brett Blakey’s squad saw Friday night against Iota provided some sobering moments in a 30-7 defeat.
“At 3-2, I think we’re better than some expected us to be,” Blakey said. “For the most part, the guys are doing a great job. But we’ve got to learn how to finish the job. We had trouble with Ascension (Episcopal) and Erath, but were able to pull those out.
