Eureka Tornado football fans sat stunned in silence after the Humboldt Cubs erased a 10-point deficit in the games final four minutes to pull off a 38-32 win at Iolas 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 dont 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.
