HUMBOLDT — The Humboldt High boys cruised to their Class 3A first round substate 64-30 victory against Neodesha Tuesday. 

The Cubs (18-4) got behind senior Trey Sommer scoring his 1,000th career point. Sommer garnered 25 points in the home contest. Humboldt’s defense also held Neodesha’s scorers to single digits.

It was an onslaught from tipoff. Sommer went for a quick couple of layups and drew fouls to knock down four free throws in the first. Sam Hull also scored a trio of layups and went for seven points in the opening quarter. 

The Cubs kept up their intensity in the second quarter. Sommer scored 11 points and Colden Cook scored five in the second, including a three-pointer. 

Neodesha’s biggest threat was Krewe Johnson, who splashed in a couple of three’s in the second quarter.

Humboldt led the Blue Streaks at halftime, 42-10. 

Sommer posted a couple of layups and a couple of free throws and Asher Hart netted a couple of layups and a free throw, for a 60-20 lead heading into the fourth.

The Cubs then played a lot of their bench players to secure the 64-30 victory. 

Sommer led Humboldt’s scoring effort with 25 points, followed by Hull’s 13 points and Cook and Hart’s nine points apiece. 

Humboldt faces Wichita-Trinity Academy in the second round of the Class 3A substate playoff tournament in Eureka on Friday at 6 p.m.
