No dance for Spartans

Panthers’ second half sends Solon home, 51-33

IOWA CITY– Turnovers and a suffocating Mount Pleasant defense spelled trouble for the Spartans.
Solon fell in the Class 3A Substate 5 final, 51-33, to the defending champion Panthers Monday night at Iowa City West.
The Spartans held a 14-point lead at one point in the first half, but a wound-up Mount Pleasant team started hitting the 3-pointers they missed earlier in a second half that saw only one made field goal by Solon until the game was in its final minute.
