JOPLIN, Mo. — JUNGE STADIUM — Kirkwood came to town Friday night but Joplin made it a long ride home for them. The last few minutes Joplin News First captured live! Including the coaches post-game wrap.
It was a back and forth first half of action, Joplin was able to take the lead from Kirkwood, and never gave it back on their way to a 69-48 win.
