HUMBOLDT’S LADY Cubs fell to Central Heights 49-46. Coach Aubrey Jones said the team started off slowly in the first half and trailed by 14 points.
“I couldn’t be more pleased with their second- half effort,” Jones said. “Unfortunately, the first half had already done its damage. Makaylah McCall played a great game for us in the second half. She was a huge spark and looked to score.”
McCall led the team with 14 points, while Lakota Wilson scored 13. Brook Turner followed with eight points and Breanna Kline added six. Annalise Whitcomb scored four and Tilar Wells scored a free throw.
Because the Lady Cubs are 1-1 in the tournament, they will have to wait and see who wins between Altoona-Midway vs. Central Heights on Thursday. The winner will determine if the Lady Cubs play for third place or first Friday.
