The Wildcats were down 2 scores in the 4th quarter and rallied to take a 1 point lead with 3 minutes left.

Humboldt would get the ball back but with less than a minute didn’t have the time to put together a drive and ultimately fell 42-35. It was the end of a “renaissance” this year for Humboldt Football its best since 2014.
