FULL GAME LOG

GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
And so…we meet again. A grudge match for the Class 6A Division II State Championship. Longview and Beaumont West Brook had never met before the 2016 Bi-District contest. After Saturday, they will have met three consecutive years in the post season. In 2016, Longview, despite winning a co-share of the district championship, had to travel to Beaumont to take on the Bruins. The Lobos lead most of the way, grabbing a 24-14 lead midway through the 3rd quarter. The two squads continued to trade scores before a Bruin touchdown, followed by a blocked PAT return by the Lobos gave Longview a 33-27 lead late into the 4th quarter. Longview was driving to score late in that 4th quarter before a fumble by D’Crayvan Polk on the 10 yard line gave the Bruins hope. West Brook drove the rest of the way, including completing a fourth and six inside the final two minutes of play, and scored the winning touchdown and extra point to knock off the Lobos, 34-33. The two schools would meet the following year, in 2017, at Lobo Stadium. The Lobos and Bruins would battle to a 7-6 Lobo lead at halftime before a 28-point 2nd quarter would explode the Lobos into a gigantic lead. The Bruins would tally late on a 4th quarter strike, but the game was done. The Lobos rolled 42-21. And so, the 2018 edition of this new rivalry will be held on an even higher stage. The Class 6A Division II State Title game. Longview improved to a program best 15-0 with a thrilling 45-42 win over an upstart Amarillo Tascosa team. The Lobos led 35-7 at one point before the Rebels turned the switch on in the second half. Longview grabbed a 45-28 lead with five minutes left, but penalties began to hurt the Lobos and the Rebels drew within 45-35. An onside kick followed by a hook and ladder play brought the Rebs to the final score of 45-42. Longview recovered the onside kick and Haynes King picked up the lone first down needed and it was done. Longview advanced to it’s 5th all-time state championship game, and first since 2009. The Lobos will be looking to end a streak that dates back to 1937. It’s a streak that has been mocked by East Texans and the rest of the state for ages. Longview is the program that can’t finish. 81 years the Lobos have gone without a state championship. And for the 4th time since that 1937 1A State Title, the Lobos will get their shot to end it. Beaumont West Brook improved to 13-2 with a 35-30 victory over favored Austin Westlake in their State Semi-Final. The Bruins have been on a roll in their last 7 games, since falling hard to Galena Park North Shore, who will be in the 6A Division I State Title game next Saturday. The Bruins return to the State Championship game for the first time since 1982, their first season of varsity football when West Brook won their only State Title.

Brook by 3. 409 is due for a big classification state champ in football, we did it in basketball this calendar year so it's WB time on that gridiron.

Coaching decisions are the difference. I hope that Gavin Robert's isn't done, if so then his injury is solely on Coach King for running a stupid draw play to end the first half. And only 9 passes? I mean we got what we wanted on the ground but come on. I'm confident that the team will come out ready to go, just hope it doesnt come down to a field goal.

15 down 1 to go!!! Coach King said blame this nerve racker on him he said he got too conservative on his play calling in the second-half and it almost cost his players that gm. He said he will never do it again even if they were up like tonight. I think this gm tonight had coach King a nervous wreck.

I noticed Coach King went with a few passes early in the second half, but then got away from it. Looked like his son was having trouble gripping the ball or something. It wasn't coming out clean. Tascosa came out with a purpose, after the half!

Yeah coach King said they average 18-20 pass attempts a gm and they only had 8 total last night.

Lobos!

I don't know of anybody in ET that isn't pulling for Coach King and the Lobos. If they come out and play "their" game there will be a HUGE celebration in Longview Saturday night. Me included....

Go Lobos!

Amen! At least he took accountability for it, so I don't have to waste my time going in on him (that hard anyway) since he acknowledged it. That SAME EXACT playcalling he done last night is what cost us at least a shot at the state championship in 2010 against Denton Guyer. You would think that game alone would have resonated with him enough that he wouldn't put his student athletes in that position ever again. This would have definitely superseded his squandered opportunity in 2010 by EPIC proportions.

It's that type of playcalling for damn near 20 years going on now that had me stopped believing in him several years ago because he REFUSES to get out of his own way and use common sense sometimes. There is NO WAY in hell that Tascosa should have been ALLOWED the opportunity to cut on their proverbial momentum switch. Thank God for the offense we have this year to somewhat offset his countless blunders. He's a damn good coach and an even better person but MAN............. he could be SO much better than he is if he'd cut out the foolery.

Go with what's gotten you here and live with the results, win or lose. I am more than elated to be in the title game but, acting Scott Linehan-ish especially in that second half is unacceptable. This is NOT bashing and that's my personal OPINION for those of you already looking for a hammer, nails and the cross. I sure hope he proves me dead wrong next week, though. Tired of showing up to the dance and forgetting to bring our shoes.

I guess you could critsuze the play in second half but oh well! They are 15-0 and on the cusp of winning it all. It’s a long and grueling season. Let’s just bring the whole damn town to this game and push this team past all the ghosts of the past! I was proud to look at the size of the crowd and I said to myself “ darn right this is Longview”..... awesome crowd!!!! I know I can be critical and it’s more just stress and wanting them to win soo badly and I apologize for that ok.  it’s about the community also and I’m proud to say I live in a Longview! Now let’s bring this S..t home!!!

Go Lobis!!!!

15K at the championship? I think it's possible. Longview needs to do like Tascosa and provide every possible way for the students to come support their peers. I loved seeing that student section on Tascosa's side last night. I know Longview does those fan buses and all.
