But the Wildcats would turn back the the Lion threat with an interception on their own one yard line and it was 7-0 Humboldt at the half. In the third quarter the Lions had another good drive that would end on the Humboldt 1 yard line as the Lions were stopped and turned it over on downs. Humboldt would score in the 4th quarter on a long run and back came the Lions. Chase Lester hit Zach Merfeld on a big 32 yard pass play to set up Carter Hand’s 1 yard plunge for the touchdown.
