The Humboldt Cubs offensive line dominated from start to finish in a 50-14 route in tonight’s road win in Eureka . The line created plenty of running lanes for Jacob Barker and company as they were able to rush for 237 yards . When you see a 50-14 score you would think there would be even more rush yards but the Cubs controlled the field position the entire game .
Humboldt again started the game with a successful onside kick which I believe is the third time in five games . Barker lost a fumble with the second offensive play for the offense . Cash Parmes of Eureka is mostly known as the best running back in the Tri-Valley league was actually playing signal caller tonight . And he did it really well completing 9 of 14 pass attempts and a 50 yard touchdown pass and another running the football.
After sacking the quarterback for a big loss by Connor Haviland the Tornadoes were forced to punt the football. Haviland returned the punt for 65 yards to set up Barker for a 4 yard touchdown run to put the Cubs up 8-0 after the 2 point conversion was good at the 8 minute mark in the first quarter. Then everyone in attendance watched Parmes look like Aaron Rogers throwing the football with his 50 yard touchdown pass to get the score to 8-6 in favor of the Cubs. Parmes completed 6 of his first 7 pass attempts .
The Cubs would turn every facet of the game up a few notches from there on out . Quarterback Kyler Allen , Barker , and Haviland had a hay day running wherever they wanted scoring 6 more touchdowns on the night . The defensive line and linebackers played very good as well in the contest . David Watts was trying his best for a game Mvp ball in the first half tearing through the line making tackles about every other play it seemed like . Humboldt went in at halftime with a 42-6 lead.
In the Tri-Valley league there is a running clock after a team is up 35 points I believe. Coach Wyrick and his staff made sure to get all the young kids in the ball game . Eureka would go on to score once more in the game and so did Humboldt’s Teryn Johnson . With the final score of 50-14 Eureka drops 3 in a row in league play and is 2-3 . Humboldt improved their record to 4-1 . Humboldt travels to Fredonia next week and Eureka plays at home against the win less Erie squad.
