The Lobos return to the fateful round of last season’s disappointing loss that saw the Lobos have two tries at field goals to push themselves into the 6A Division II State Championship, only for both field goals to be missed and for Waco Midway to advance to a spot that the Lobos felt was rightfully their’s. The redemption tour continued for Longview, as they knocked out one of the toughest defensive units they’ve faced all season with a 14-0 victory over Spring Westfield at Waco ISD Stadium. The win marked Longview’s first playoff victory at Waco ISD, after falling to South Garland in 2003 in overtime and to Pflugerville on the exact date in the exact round 11 years ago in 2007. It was anything but pretty for the first time this season on offense for the Lobos. Longview was held to season lows in all categories outside of first downs, but the Lobos overcame and for the first time this season counted on their defense to bring home the W for them. Longview held the Mustangs to a mere 100 total yards on the night, and just seven first downs overall, in their first shut out of an opponent since 2015. The shut out also marked Longview’s first playoff shut out since a 24-0 victory over Tomball in 2010. The win propels Longview into the State Semi-Finals for the second straight year and the ninth time overall in school history. It will be Longview’s 5th Semi-Final trip in 15 seasons under head coach John King. On the other side of things, a completely new opponent and a completely new area that Longview has never faced a team from. Amarillo Tascosa got the big upset victory out in Lubbock with a 48-27 victory over previously undefeated Haltom. The Rebels advanced to the State Semi-Finals for the first time since 1964, after knocking off their second undefeated team in the post season, which includes Arlington and Haltom. The four playoff victories in a season is the most in Tascosa football history. Their last tripe to the State Semi-Finals included back to back losses to Garland in 1963 and 1964. Since falling to Garland 21-7 in 1964, the Rebels had made the quarterfinals just twice (1966 & 1967) and had advanced past the Area round just once (2015). This will be Tascosa’s first ever trip to AT&T Stadium, while Longview will be returning to the land of Jerry Jones for the third time after defeating Wylie 35-14 in 2015 and then falling to Mansfield Lake Ridge in 2015, 56-53, on a missed field goal in the final seconds. It’s sure to be a barn burner as the Rebels look to advance to their first ever State Championship while Longview is looking to return for the first time since 2009, and for their fifth trip overall.
