GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
Domination. The only word that can be expressed after Longview's 56-7 victory over arch rival Marshall last Friday night. The Lobos struck quick and fast in the first half building a 21-0 lead after one quarter, growing that lead to 42-7 at the halftime break. After last season’s 28-25 loss to the Mavericks, the Lobos made quick work to prove last season’s loss was an arbitration instead of a changing of the guard. The win gave Longview it’s 15th victory in their last 16 contests against Marshall. It was also the program’s 59th victory against the arch rival Mavericks. Kendrevian White was the work horse for the Lobos for the second straight week as he registered four touchdowns on the night, becoming the first Lobo to put home four touchdowns since Braylynn Anthony’s four touchdown night last season against Hallsville. The Lobos now return home for their home opener against a foe they haven’t faced since the early 1990s. It’s been 25 years since Longview and Dallas’s South Oak Cliff met on the gridiron, in a series that dates back to 1956. The two programs have met just five times over their histories, all at Longview’s Lobo Stadium (new and old). The only non-Longview victory came in 1962 during a 6-6 tie. The Lobos, for the most part, have dominated the overall series..especially the two previous encounters having outscored the Golden Bears 84-8. The two schools have started the 2016 season in quite opposite fashion. After both schools started the season 0-1, the two teams took very different routes in week two with Longview rolling 56-7 and South Oak Cliff falling apart to Lancaster 51-7. The Lobos will be hosting both Homecoming and Green Out events during the week three contest. Longview has not lost a Homecoming game since 2003 (an 18-14 loss to Tyler Lee), having won 12 consecutive. The Lobos are also 12-2 all-time during Green Out contests, losing just twice to Allen (2011) and John Tyler (2014). Longview also brings an 8-game home winning streak into the game, having only lost to John Tyler (41-25) in their last 21 home games. The game also pits Longview against a Dallas ISD school for the first time since 2008, when the Lobos knocked off Dallas Carter (35-20) in the Regional round of the 4A playoffs. Overall, Longview has registered a 45-8-2 record all-time against DISD schools.
