DATE: Friday, October 23rd

TIME: 7:30 PM

LOCATION: Lion Memorial Stadium Ennis, Tx


I thought the Ennis fans would've made a thread by now about this one. I guess we're all down after our games friday. Both teams come into this game 3-1 in district and hoping to get a big win before the playoffs start in a few weeks. After defeating Lindale 28-27 at home, Lufkin goes back on the road to play the defending D2 champions, the Ennis Lions. Ennis comes into this game looking to redeem themselves, after suffering their first district lost in the 16-5A district showdown to John Tyler 40-29 at Rose stadium on friday. Last year, Lufkin lost in a 55-48 shootout at Abe in the final minutes. This will be our first time playing in Ennis, since I think our playoff games in the early 2000s(I'm thinking Waco and Garland?). So, who wins this one?

nawl Ennis ain't similar Lobos...we actually beat JT...

These east Texas posters are really bragging over game decided on a coin flip lol wow! They really are smashing Ennis, even looked up their previous records back to sleep to 2011.

Wait what? I got distracted by a dime piece

I still can't believe y'all lost to that Garland team in 2003.

Ennis is very similar to LV, can't throw nor do they cover the pass well but they can run the ball. LP can win this one with some effort. Beware though, the flags will fly early and often.

I'm done with predictions. I'm just hoping the Pack can get a win. It definitely won't be easy going into Ennis and trying to get a win, especially with them losing on friday.

 

I don't know much about Lufkin's team. They don't post district stats for the "east Texas" teams at the DMN. I'm going with Ennis, of course, because I'm a "homer".

 

I think JT was the 2nd (I'll have to check) team to throw for over 200 on us, but we were OK at stopping the run. It could very well come down to turnovers or who has the ball last, I don't know. As I said, I know very little about Lufkin.

 

That's about a 2.5 hour drive for you guys though, so at least be safe on the trip to Ennis and back.

No prediction from me . Lufkin has been like a box of chocolates lately, never know what your going to get from them week to week. The bottom line is the turnovers, as in the last two games have cost them, that stuff needs to go away. If Lufkin can correct that problem, they will be okay.

Well, at least they'll still be playing on turf instead of on a grass field. So I'm not sure how much that will actually affect a running game.

 

Right now, AccuWeather is forecasting a high of 74º, and a 60% chance of "showers and a heavier thunderstorm".

Well. Lufkin runs the ball pretty well too. They have 4 or 5 guys that can tote it pretty good. Just hope we can stay close to those State Champs.
