FREDONIA — Humboldt High’s Cubs and Lady Cubs were on the road Tuesday against opponents they’ll host Friday.
A strong first half propelled the Cubs to a 20-point halftime lead. They needed it as Fredonia High’s Yellowjackets rallied, but the Cubs won 59-51 Tuesday.
“We played extremely well in the first half. The kids were really focused,” said David Taylor, Cubs’ head coach. “Maybe we got a little fatigued in the second half and we lost focus.”
Humboldt was up 34-14 at halftime. Fredonia outscored the Cubs 15-13 in the third then went on a 22-12 run in the final eight minutes.
Tevin Strack downed 10 of 18 from the free-throw line to score 18 points for Humboldt. He had five steals.
Noah Thornbrugh tossed in 14 points, had eight rebounds and blocked three shots. Trey Johnson fired in 14 points.
“Chris Coronado played really good post defense. Noah rebounded well and it was good to see Trey shooting the ball better,” Taylor said.
Humboldt was 16 of 31 from the line. Fredonia cashed in 14 of 22 free throws
Devin Baker scored 15 points for the Yellowjackets. Bryson Allen added 14 points.
Fredonia’s girls defeated the Lady Cubs 69-26. No other information was available for the girls’ game.
The Cubs improved to 7-6 in Tri-Valley League play and 11-8 overall while the Lady Cubs are 0-13 and 0-19.
Humboldt hosts Fredonia Friday in makeup TVL games to end the regular season.
The Humboldt teams await seedings and pairing for next week’s Kansas Class 2A Substate Basketball Tournament hosted by Oswego.
