BURLINGTON — Humboldt High’s Cubs were dealing with the bigger bodies Burlington High’s Wildcats throw at people on the basketball court.
The Wildcats were up 13-10 after one quarter.
“Then Tevin (Strack) picked up his third foul in the second quarter and we lost our momentum,” said David Taylor, Cub head coach.
“Their size just was too much. The wheels came off for awhile and they pounded the ball inside on us.”
The Wildcats dominated the second and third quarters to the tune of 33-9 on their way to a 56-27 win at home Friday.
“Our effort was better than in the first game. We just can’t match up with their size,” Taylor said.
Mackenzie Redding, a 6-3 forward did most of the damage with 20 points for the Wildcats.
Tyler Gean scored eight points for Humboldt. Strack finished with seven points, four rebounds and three blocked shots.
Trey Johnson and Gean each had two steals.
Humboldt also lost the junior varsity and C-team games.
Humboldt is 8-6 on the season. The Cubs host Caney Valley Tuesday.
