HUMBOLDT — The Humboldt Middle School football team crushed Eureka on Thursday night, 34-0.

The Cubs (3-0) got on the board in the first quarter on a Truman Grzybowski three-yard touchdown rush for the 6-0 lead. 

Humboldt’s Kreed Jones shortly after ripped the ball out of a Eureka ball carrier’s hands and took the ball 65 yards to the house for a 12-0 lead. After a scoreless second quarter, Humboldt headed into halftime with a 12-0 lead.

Following halftime, Humboldt came up with a big defensive stop before Cub Collin Cook took a handoff 38 yards into the end zone for a touchdown. The Cubs were able to tack on a two-point conversion from Jones as Humboldt led 20-0 heading to the fourth quarter. 

Humboldt reached the end zone two more times in the fourth beginning with a Grzybowski 70-yard touchdown run before Gavin Gunderman took a handoff from 13 yards out for a big 34-0 advantage. 

The Humboldt defensive effort was led by Kage Daniels, Hudson Rees, Ty Shaughnessy, Emmitt Carson and Cook who all came down with important tackles in the win. 

“Overall, this win was a true team effort on all sides of the ball,” said Humboldt head coach Matt Jennings. “It was great to play in front of our home crowd and we really appreciate the cheerleaders, students, family and friends who all came out to support the team.”

The Humboldt Middle School football team plays at Caney Valley next Thursday at 4 p.m.
