Humboldt gets rolled by undefeated Olpe

OLPE — Things went from bad to worse in a hurry Thursday evening for Humboldt High.
The Cubs trailed by 49 points midway through the second quarter in Olpe High’s 56-0 win.
Now, Humboldt must put the game out of its memory banks in short order because Class 2A bi-district play opens Tuesday. The Cubs, who already had secured a playoff berth before their regular season finale, will travel to Moundridge.
“We actually had a big play on offense to start the game, but we stalled from there,” Humboldt head coach Mike Miller said. “Then they scored on their first play from scrimmage. That set the theme for the rest of the game.”
How dominant was Olpe?
By the midway point of the second quarter, the Eagles’ Linden Stueve had racked up 229 yards rushing and four touchdowns — on five carries.
“We were beat before we ever stepped on the field,” Humboldt coach Miller said. “We had poor tackling and effort, and Olpe is definitely big and physical. They owned us about every way you can own a team.”
Olpe, which completed a 9-0 regular season, wound up with 403 yards rushing. Humboldt mustered only 14 yards on the ground.
The Cubs, without the services of starting quarterback Derrik McCall, gained most of their yardage through the air. Trey Johnson completed only 3 of 11 passes, but those completions covered 80 yards. Christian Hicks had 73 yards on two catches, and Elijah Friederich had a seven-yard reception. Johnson led Humboldt with nine yards on the ground. Johnson also intercepted an Olpe pass.
On defense, Kyle Warren led Humboldt with 10 tackles.
“We don’t have a lot of time,” Miller said. “We have to put this game behind us.”
