Eureka Tornado football fans sat stunned in silence after the Humboldt Cubs erased a 10-point deficit in the game’s final four minutes to pull off a 38-32 win at Iola’s Municipal Stadium on Friday night.

Humboldt quarterback Conor Haviland rushed for 166 yards and three scores, including the game winner on a one-yard touchdown with 37.1 seconds left.

“Haviland was hurting the whole fourth quarter,” Humboldt head coach Logan Wyrick said on the rain-soaked field. “He came to me and said, ‘Coach I don’t even know if I can run anymore.’ And I looked at him and said this is your ballgame, young man. You got to win this one for us.’
