High School Football: Cubs 61, Rams 7
RIVERTON Humboldt has a simple formula for winning football games, get the ball and score early and often. Friday night the Cubs tallied their first touchdown with just 29 seconds elapsed: Connier Haviland ran for 17 yards, before Dagen Goodner burst about the goal line after keeping on an option and racing 38 yards.
The reason the Cubs are able to accomplish that with preposterous efficiency is that Coach Logan Wyrick has a stable of athletes, headlined by a handful but with depth that exceeds those needed at one time, 11 of offense and 11 on defense, by a healthy margin.
Friday night they gave Riverson a dose of the potion Wyrick has brewed, through structured preparation. The Cubs have reeled off six straight victories, including three in class 2A district play, and seem bound to reward their dedication with a journey into post-season play.
