HUMBOLDT Conor Haviland rushed for 221 yards and accounted for all three Humboldt scores (two rushing and one passing touchdown), but it took a defensive stand on the games final possession to propel the Cubs to a 20-14 homecoming win over Riverton on Friday night.
The Cubs (6-0) took a 20-0 lead just before halftime when Haviland hit Cooper Jaro with a 22-yard scoring pass in what looked to be another Humboldt rout.
But the visitors crept back into the contest with two fourth-quarter scores, while a Cubs fumble with less than three minutes remaining gave the Rams new life.
