HUMBOLDT — A two-point first quarter meant the Humboldt Lady Cubs had to play catchup for the next three. While the Lady Cubs punched back, Uniontown stood firm to hold onto a 38-33 victory Tuesday night. 

Humboldt started slow offensively, and it didn’t help that senior Winter Snyder faced foul trouble early on. The Lady Cubs didn’t score their first bucket until Jessica Myers found the bottom of the net with a 15-foot jumper from the corner. 

“We weren’t running our offense,” head coach Aubree Jones said. “We just came out and looked kind of intimidated, and didn’t get in our groove in the first quarter. With two points in the first quarter, you can’t win with that, and you can’t win if you don’t take care of the ball either.”
