Kim- ball quarterback Cameron Hunt rushed for one score and shelled out 23 completions for a whop- ping 372 yards passing and four touchdowns. Cameron Hunt's last TD pass with just over five minutes remaining, broke a 26-all tie and elevated the Cubs to a six- point advantage. But the Lakers persevered, combining a safety with the final TD bomb, and to the faithful onlookers' dismay, snatched the victory.
