FULL GAME LOG

GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW:
One step closer. The motto to the rest of the regular season will sing true, as the Lobos inch ever so closer to a district championship, a first since 2019's 11-6A district title. Last week, the Lobos returned to the gridiron from the bye week to blast 5A Division One new comer Forney, 46-7, in the first meeting between the two squads. The Lobos controlled the very get go, racing out to a 22-0 lead before Forney had a chance to know what hit them. The win improved Longview to 6-0 on the season, but most importantly 3-0 in district. With that, the Lobos see four teams remaining in front of them in their quest to return to the mark of district champions. This week, the North Mesquite Stallions are back on the schedule after a two year hiatus. The Stallions dropped down from Class 6A in last February's realignment. However, the Stallions have found just as little success in 5A D1 as they did in Class 6A. North Mesquite comes in off a 28-14 loss down at Lufkin, dropping to 1-2 in district play. North Mesquite's lone win in district play was over crosstown rival West Mesquite, who currently sits at 0-3 in district play. The two teams last met in 2019, when the Lobos won their 24th consecutive game in knocking off the Stallions 55-0. The win also marked Longview's 7th in a row over North Mesquite, dating back to 2010. Since the Lobos lost to North Mesquite back in 2010, Longview has outscored the Stallions 346-83 in those seven meetings. The last two meetings have been the largest margins of victory for Longview in the series, outscoring the Stallions 118-3 in those two meetings alone. Overall, Longview has 12 wins over the Stallions to just three losses. The two teams first met back in 1971, when the Stallions visited Longview and walked away with a 36-23 victory thanks to a 17-point outburst in the fourth quarter. In the next meeting, delayed until 1988, the Stallions knocked off the Lobos at Lobo Stadium again in a 28-14 victory. Those two wins are the only time a Mesquite ISD squad has ever had a series lead over the Lobos. Since then, the Lobos have rolled over the Stallions, all in district play, by a 12-1 series margin. North Mesquite's lone district win over the Lobos was definitely a big win, back in 2010. Longview took a 14-3 lead into the 4th quarter at Mesquite Memorial Stadium only for Joe Bergeron and the Stallions to overcome Longview and defeat the Lobos 24-14. The win snapped a 36-game district winning streak for the Lobos. The loss also remains the only loss since John King over that saw the Lobos give up a multiple score lead in the fourth quarter. The Stallions almost did the same four years prior in 2006, when Longview took a 27-14 lead into the fourth quarter at Mesquite Memorial only for North Mesquite to storm back and take a 28-27 lead on the Lobos late. Longview's D'Marcus Miles denied that comeback, however, as the Lobos escaped with a 35-28 win. The two teams are meeting at Mesquite Memorial Stadium for the 7th time, with Longview holding a 5-1 record against the Stallions at their home venue. Overall, this will be Longview's 17th trip to Mesquite Memorial Stadium, holding an 11-5 advantage in the previous 16 games. Of course, Longview fans know Mesquite Memorial quite well after recent years in seeing their season end at the hands of Denton Ryan in both 2020 and 2021 at Memorial. That said, outside of opponent not ranked No. 1 in the state and not named Denton Ryan, Longview has won their last 5 contests there. As Longview enters tonight's contest, they can not clinch a playoff berth this week though tiebreakers would be the only way to eliminate the Lobos in that case. Longvew can however, clinch a playoff berth and a top two seed with a win this week and next week.

Thru 6 games Longview 276 opponents 48  That's an average of 46 a game and allowing only 8👀

The second half points is what is baffling. 

95-8 in the second half, 53-0 in the 4th alone.

Marshall’s third quarter score followed by the trick two pointer have been the only points scored against us in the second half this season.

We've had multiple goal line stands along the way. The other team has definitely had chances. Heck, we gave them two prime chances tonight. We muffed the kickoff, started on our 32. Then we had a horrible snap on the punt and they started on our 29. They didn’t get a single first down on either drive.

Just beyond impressive from our D.

Gotta get the penalities taken care of. The turnovers have been (mostly) flukes and/or great plays by opponents this year, but we still gotta take better care of the ball. 

Only team beating Longview this year is themselves. Yeah, I said it. 

If this team plays a clean game, we win. Every. Time.

If we spread it around like we did last night, there's very few teams who will be able to stop us. I still don't understand what we were doing vs Lancaster in that aspect.

Penalties will be our downfall if we have one. Just way too many since district started.

I'm not too worried about the fumbles from last night...one was a muffed kickoff. No idea what was happening there. The other lost was back ups late late in the game. Of course we had the high snap on a punt as well, but correctable.

Just gotta stay focused, take it one at a time. McKinney North is our biggest threat in the final weeks of the regular season, and probably our biggest challenge until Area round to be honest about things.

Everybody ranked in the top 10 can’t come close to beating the Lobos. Timberview would get beat like a drum. Denton Ryan too. Idgaf who they are. Line’em up. Longview will drum every one of them.

Is this the best Longview team king has had since 2018? 

Undoubtedly.

2019 there was obvious issues from the get go. Even with Haynes still at QB, it just never felt right.

2020 was awful. 2021 wasn't much better. By far one of our worst senior classes, talent wise, under King.

The talent uptick is continuing past this season, but yea this one is by far the best we've had since 2018. Just gotta come to play each week.

So you're saying there's a chance?   Lol 

Heh, you know me, I'm usually Mr. Glass Half-Empty, but having watched this team up close from middle school through the summer, and now six games into the season, I can't deny what my eyes are seeing: they can do it. They can win it all. 

No, no one's gonna just roll over because that Rockin' L on their helmet. But it's right in front of them. All they've got to do is execute. Play smart. Don't lose focus or composure. It is theirs for the taking.

Not even a question. In certain areas, the team is even better than 2018.

Now, with proper WR personnel management, 2019 would've been a problem.
