HUMBOLDT had control early, jumping to a 16-7 lead, but also never replicated its first-quarter efficiency.

Heritage Christian stayed within shouting distance over the second and third periods, and then ended the game with a 17-point fourth quarter to make things respectable.

“A win is a win, no matter how ugly,” Humboldt head coach Aubrey Jones said. “We got off to a good start, and I don’t know if we got a little too excited, or a little too comfortable, but we got a little out of control. We were able to rein it in, and we finished it out. I’m probably the only one who will remember it was ugly.”
