FULL GAME LOG

GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW:
A rivalry that needs no introduction. The true rivalry week according to many Longview and Lufkin supporters kickoffs off district play this season as the 85th edition of the Lobos and Panthers set to resume the district side of the rivalry for the first time since 2003 as the two kickoff at Lufkin's Abe Martin Stadium. Longview, ranked No. 1 in the state according to Dave Campbell's Texas Football, heads to Abe Martin fresh off their second largest victory under head coach John King as the Lobos rolled over Tyler Legacy, 69-0, last Friday night. The win improved the Lobos to 3-0 on the season, and helped John King record the 200th victory of his career. King's 200th victory moved him into the top 100 all-time in victories by a head coach. Nine different Lobos tallied touchdown for Longview on Friday night, the most in a single game in school history. In the win, Longview also recorded their 18th consecutive victory over the Red Raiders, the second longest winning streak over a single team in school history. Lufkin, who improved to 3-0 to start a season for the first time since 2010, pulled one of the state's biggest upsets last Friday as the Panthers defeated No. 3 ranked A&M Consolidated, 31-14. The Panthers are riding high into 2022 one a young group that looks determined to get the Pack to the top of the state's elite. Fresh off a season that saw the Pack miss the post season for the first time in over years, Lufkin looks destined to get back into the post season run, as they enter into district play against a host of new teams. 7-5A Division I slides Lufkin, Longview and Tyler into a district with McKinney North, Lancaster, Forney, West Mesquite and North Mesquite as the seven teams get underway with competition this Friday night. Longview and Lufkin meet at Abe with the first district game between the two since 2003. Lufkin rides an 8-game district winning streak over the Lobos. Longview's last district win over the Pack came back in 1998. However, things are quite different between the two overall since the Lobos and Panthers last meet in district. Longview comes into Abe Martin Stadium holding a 5-game winning streak over the Panthers, and has won 11 of the last 13 meetings between the two schools. The last meeting between the two schools came in 2020 when the Lobos knocked off Lufkin, 41-5, in bi-district play. It was the largest Longview win over the Panthers since 1976. The Lobos enter Abe Martin Stadium looking to continue a run of success at the stadium that they have not had in over two decades. Longview has won two in a row at Abe, after having lost 10 of their previous 11 visits there. Longview last won three in a row at the stadium from 1989 to 1993. Longview also heads south for their district opener holding an 16-2 record under John King in district openers. Longview's only two losses came in 2012 and 2017, away lossses to state ranked Mesquite and as well as Mesquite Horn.

Largest win ever by a Lobo team at Rose Stadium.

18th win in a row over Legacy. 9th in a row at Rose.

Most ever by a Longview team over a Tyler squad.

Largest margin of victory ever over a Legacy squad.

That 2nd half was rough. No way the Red Raiders had over 100 yards of offense.

When it comes to what I believe is the best rivalry in the state, toss out the records, toss out the rosters....toss out everything.

Do I believe Longview is better from top to bottom? Without question. Matter of fact if Lufkin wasn't on the opposite teams jersey...this is another blowout in favor of the 'Bos.

But the nature of this rivalry is something. It's gonna be closer than Longview fans will want it to be.

Lufkins passing game is just blah. We are running the ball well. Kedren young absolutely slaughtered consolidateds D. Our defense is just straight balling. Happy to be having this success after last year and with a young team. However, they ain’t seen what next week is bringing lol.. I just wanna be competitive and keep it respectable

I just hope this team continues to improve, but good win tonight. Abe should be packed for this one. 

Yeah man exactly. We will be 3rd in this district if not 2nd. Nobody is beating Longview this year. Period.

I’m honestly shocked. I didn’t expect this team to be playing this well until next season. Very proud of this young group, especially defense, young and the receivers. If we had a better oline and QB, i would feel better about this game. Definitely hope we win though, this is district and a rival at home. 
 

I’ll say this too, we have to cut out the mistakes. Too many turnovers. Lee and Consol would’ve been ugly without them imo.

You never know….but they are definitely the top dogs. Maybe with that Denton school too.  I know they lost but still talented. Pack just gotta continue to improve and stay healthy. We got a good win tonight, but still have a lot of tough games ahead when it matters. Tyler may have some bad losses but will still give us problems with their talent level imo

All big facts. Watching this Oline kills me lol Hammond is the right option out of the two we have, but man I miss the days of having a duel threat athlete that could sling it back there. As for the mistakes, we can’t have that next week unless we wanna lose by 35. We should’ve beat Lee by 5 TD’s. Probably should’ve beat Consol tonight by another 10 points or so. Can’t leave all that out there next week.

Idk man. 43-6 to horn is bad right now. Not necessarily losing to them but dang. By 37 and only scoring 6?? They will have to significantly improve by then. They are steadily losing confidence. That’s a sinking ship.

I'll have to rewatch, but I'm almost positive they didn't.

Their best starting position all night was the 26. And one of their 2 first downs, came on a penalty. That one drive in the 2nd quarter, I believe they got to the 40 something but that was it.

Looking at who lost this week, this should be a top ten matchup.  I don't see who would enter the rankings over Lufkin.  That makes this game even more awesome.

Other notables - Tascosa lost, College station beat Temple.

Will get all the fancy stuff posted either tonight or tomorrow morning. Definitely feel like this one is gonna sell out at Abe.

This next two week stretch will really define our regular season imo.

There is no reason to think Lufkin will beat Longview. So, I will not attempt to debate that issue. The Lobos have been rolling everyone, you guys see a weakened Region II and see Denton Ryan as beatable now. To me, it's hard for me to envision anyone who will stop the Longview freight train    Lufkin surprised some folks last night, especially a really good AMC team. There will be no such surprises this week. Longview and Lufkin know each other all too well. There will be a lot of emphasis on sub varsity scores and such, but in the end the Lobos will be favored to win big, even at ABE.  Lufkin is a young and growing team, they are just looking to get better each week and distance themselves from the past two sub par seasons.  Long road ahead still for the Panthers, one big win does not define a season. Longview is top dog because they are the best in 5ADI this year, there is no doubt in my mind. 

Don't know what's wrong with Legacy and Tyler High programs, looks like they have just quit.

You won't find me much in this topic debating this week, I fully understand where Lufkin stands and their growing is a process.  Just glad this is the first game of district, and we are able to get all the normal Lufkin - Longview bantering out of the way, and move on with playing everyone else in district.  it's not like the old days between Lufkin and Longview by any stretch, and Lufkin folks are aware of that all too well.   Figure there will be a ton of folks at ABE this Friday night, lots of Lobo barking and that darn train horn.  😉
