FULL GAME LOG

GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
Revenge. Following their lone bye week of the 2018 season, the Lobos come back into play looking for revenge for their lone loss of the 2017 district campaign. Last season's 52-34 loss was just the 2nd time in team history that Longview had allowed 50 or more points to a Metroplex school and marked the lone loss for the 2018 season up until the 6A Division II State Semi-Finals where the Lobos fell to Waco Midway. Longview, 5-0 on the season, was also undefeated coming into last season's Mesquite Horn contest at 3-0. The loss helped spur the Lobos forward all the way to the second to last game of the season, before falling on a missed field goal in the dying seconds. The Lobos reached the 5-0 mark after coming from behind five separate times and taking the lead in the fourth quarter over a stubborn Rockwall side in a 42-35 shootout. Mesquite Horn has seen last season's success go completely out of their minds, as the Jags have battled to a winless 0-6 record. Despite opening the season with two State Champions in Allen and Highland Park, not much was thought of Horn's 0-2 start but since, it's been a continuing battle of disappointment. The Jags fell to Cedar Hill and a close loss to Arlington had the Jags sitting at 0-4 going into district play. The biggest upset loss was their 20-17 loss to last season's 1-9 Mesquite Skeeters. This past week, the Jags battled but couldn't overcome the dynamic duo in Rockwall as the Jackets defeated Horn, 41-35. This week's meeting marks the 12th meeting between the two schools, dating back to 2004 when Horn moved to 5A for the first time after opening in 2002. Longview dominated the series for the first seven games, before the Jags finally knocked off the Lobos 25-17 at EH Hanby Stadium in 2012. The loss in 2012 set Longview back to the 3rd spot in district, the only time Longview has not finished first or second in district play under head coach John King. After winning the next two meetings, the Lobos dropped last season's decision to mark a 9-2 overall series record. Horn comes into the contest not only winless on this season, but also winless in Lobo Stadium. Longview has won all five previous meetings between the two schools underneath the Piney Wood trees of East Texas. Horn's closest contest at the stadium was a 13-8 loss in 2010, where the Jags actually grabbed a lead into the 4th quarter before falling. Last time the Lobos and Jags met in Lobo Stadium, Longview jumped out to a 41-17 lead heading into the 4th quarter before the Jaguars battled back to make it a game scoring 20 points in the final frame. Longview is looking to improve to 6-0 on the season for the first time since 2005. The Lobos have won 10 consecutive games inside Lobo Stadium, the last loss coming to John Tyler in 2016. Longivew is 65-5 under John King inside the comfy confines of Lobo Stadium, with one loss being a forfeit. In district games, Longview is 40-1 under King at Lobo Stadium. Overall in district play, the Lobos are 79-6 under John King. Currently, the Lobos have won 11 consecutive regular season games and are currently on a seven game district winning streak. The Jags are on a seven game overall losing streak, dating back to last season after their season ending 34-24 loss to Coppell. Horn's last victory came in the bi-district round last year in a 45-24 victory over Conroe Oak Ridge.

Will get everything updated next Saturday, of course, after Horn plays Rockwall.

But wanted to get the thread up and for us to have some place to talk about Lobo football this week etc. 

Bye week could not come at a better time IMO.

Givens is there in his senior season. I have no idea what's going on there. I'm just as shocked as you. I thought they should've beaten Arlington, for sure. I know the Colts are good, but Horn should've beaten them with what they had coming back. But losing to Mesquite...just no excuse for that. 

There sounds like there's a lot of problems going on over there, and I don't see it getting any easier this week when they take on Rockwall.

This is more for @TheFootballFan...after last night's comment about the offense not clicking...

Longview is in it's 109th season of football. This Longview squad has already outscored 70 of those previous 108 teams. 

We've only played half of the regular season.

Yes the offense is very good but the defense...

I'm just old school and I believe defense wins championships on every level...SS being the abnormality.

This game needs to be mistake-free and solid momentum from the get-go.

The team needs to be girding itself for a deep playoff run, so that means playing heads-up and without stupid mistakes.

LNJ has Haynes at exactly 300 yards passing, 604 total yards. Has Rockwall at 463 (118 rush/345 pass).

Again, I thought Rockwall had a better defense? 🤔

We have some interesting characters in our fan base, for sure.

Things are starting to become clearer, but looking more and more likely like a Longview vs Waco Midway first round rematch is coming to hand.

There's a conspiracy on 4chan that TFF is actually a Carthage fan, sent by Trump to sabotage morale among Lobo fans. :tinfoil:

Yes you do, sitting in the stands at La Vega at Midlothian Heritage last night looking at SDC checking on Longview and it was like the Lobos had gone to trash and the game was a blowout loss. Longview was down by 7 and it wasn’t even half time.
