CHERRYVALE — On Saturday, the Humboldt Lady Cubs rattled Osawatomie to claim first place in the Pleasanton Blue-Jays Mid-Season Tournament. But on Monday, the Lady Cubs failed to replicate the winning formula.
The Lady Cubs faced a tall mountain to climb at intermission, trailing by 19 at the half. And while Humboldt pushed back, the whole initial hole was too large to climb out of. The Chargers held on late 45-40 victory.
“We came within four, and then it was one of those situations where you could see them panic,” Humboldt head coach Aubrey Jones said. “As long as you stay cool, calm, and collected you are doing ok, but as soon as you start to panic and playing not to lose, then you’ll be out of it.”
