Bethel defensive tackle Happy Iona will return to the field to face Graham-Kapowsin (4-1, 4-1) in a critical SPSL South showdown after missing three games with a high-ankle sprain.

“They took the cast off two weeks ago and he’s ready to go,” Braves coach Gavin Kralik said. “He’s been at practice all week.”

Kralik said that Iona, a 6-foot-3, 285-pound senior who has given an oral commitment to play at Oregon State, will likely be rotated in and out of the game to keep him fresh. Iona suffered the injury four weeks ago against Curtis.

“We’ll see how many plays he can go,” Kralik said. “He’s probably lost some of his conditioning because of the injury.”

Iona is coming back just in time for Bethel (4-1, 3-1). The winner of this game will have an outside chance of gaining a share of the SPSL South title — seventh-ranked and undefeated Curtis must a lose a game for this to happen — and the inside track on securing the league’s second seed to the preliminary round of the state playoffs in Week 10 and a home game, while the No. 3 team must travel.

“There’s a lot riding on this one for both teams,” Kralik said.
