Colgan defense too much for Lady Cubs

Humboldt High's girls defeated a pair of higher seeded teams in the Class 2A substate tournament, but were no match Saturday for Pittsburg St. Mary's-Colgan's withering pressure defense. The Lady Cubs saw their season end with a 46-19 defeat.

HUMBOLDT — Humboldt High’s magic carpet ride through the 2021 postseason came crashing to earth Saturday.

After knocking off the top-seeded Uniontown Eagles one night earlier in the Class 2A Substate Tournament, Humboldt’s offense was stymied repeatedly by an oppressive Pittsburg St. Mary’s-Colgan defense in the title game.

The No. 2 seed Panthers held Humboldt without a field goal until the third quarter in a 46-19 victory.
