The Wildcats struck again in the 2nd quarter with Matson finding Will Orness for a 10-yard touchdown, the first of three touchdown receptions by Orness, to give Humboldt a 14-0 lead. Cade Matson would throw his third of five touchdowns on the night before halftime, to give Humboldt a 21-0 lead.
Humboldt remained in control for the second half, scoring two more touchdowns on throws by Cade Matson, who finished 15-of-16 for 214 yards and five touchdowns, before the Lynx put a score on the board from CJ Hisler, to set the final score at 35-7.
Humboldt starts its season at 1-0 and will face Garner-Hayfield-Ventura this Friday night, Webster City drops to 0-1 and will travel to Boone to take on the Toreadors on Friday night.
