I thought this was one of our prettiest wins of the season.

We finally faced adversity. We were pretty lucky to head into the half tied at 0. More so that one of those two field goals didn’t go through for the Mustangs. But all season long we’ve relied on our offense to win games and all season long people have doubted our defense.

Our defense won this game for us. Four drops for zero points inside our own 30? Man alive. Even bad teams connect every once and a while. And Westfield certainly isn’t a bad team. 

 Offense got a test like they hadn’t has all season long. And probably won’t get the rest of the year. Not only did they change the way they had played most of the year, but they still made mistakes in the second half and still somehow overcame them.

This is a special, special win. I thought the WF defense was good but didn’t think they are THAT good. I was very impressed with them. But end of the day, Jessie got the yards we needed. King still had some extremely key passes in the win. And we’re moving on.

We needed a game and win like this, and we got it. Just couldn’t be happier for this team. Onto Arlington and to facing Tascosa.

I agree. Told my best friend (another former player and long time fan) that in my eyes, beating a team like Westfield, in these conditions, with the way we played, 14-0 is a blowout in my eyes. Or at the very least a very solid win. 

You remember that Dekaney game. Same thing, except this time our team held when it mattered and made the big plays when it mattered. 

THe offense has been the talk... And they did have a solid day minus a few turnovers, given the defense we were playing and the limiting weather conditions. But the DEFENSE is who came up big. Had their backs to the wall all day and stonewalled Westfield when it mattered. This was just "one of those games" where things go wrong, the weather is nasty, etc. But the team pulled it out with a very solid 14-0 win. Shutouts don't come easy.

My nephew who lives in Australia is on vacation in the states for the fist time. He asked me to take him to see a American football game. I hope he is ready for the Lobo nation

Lifting this from the previous game thread because I want to reiterate it here...   I haven't watched any film on Westfield yet, but I just want to express how much I believe in these kids. It's

So true Johnny. This type of game that in the past would’ve wrecked us. Completely foil any hopes of a state title. But they overcame this year. Just such a huge win.

Nothing like we've seen the last 2 weeks but their Offense is gimmicky by today's standards and very efficient.

Go watch film of Army vs Navy to get an idea of what we will see....not typical for what is run locally but allows them to take advantage of their talent and others commitment or non-commitment to the run.

That's what championship teams do find way to win the ugly ones

I dunno about blowout persay, but I will tell you that I sat there in Waco ISD and never felt like we would lose the game.

Big shout out to our defense man. I tell people all the time, they are highly underrated and not given enough credit.

Same. Granted, I was annoyed with the weather, and the turnovers, but I wasn't anxious about the result.

I felt the same way. I liked how king responded the 2nd half. He was clearly upset the first half with the 2 picks and the fumble. He played much better the 2nd half.

An ugly win counts the same as a blowout win ——— just win.

"This isn't a football team that's built with a bunch of move-ins. This is a team that is Longview built. This is a community team and it started at an early age. That's what I'm so proud of. These kids have been through the program. This is Longview built and it's got a lot of pride to it."- Coach King

 

This has always been what I've loved about Longview. Unlike a few other programs in the area (and hey, more power to those programs), we usually have kids move out in order to be able to start somewhere else. Longview has been homegrown football at its finest. Great win against a quality defense today.
