LAST FIVE GAMES IN SERIES: 10.21.2021 - McKinney North 37, Longview 35 - McKinney ISD Stadium 11.27.2020 - Longview 55, McKinney North 10 - Lobo StadiumFULL GAME LOG GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW: Revenge. Head coach John King won’t want many people thinking that’s what is on the mind of his Lobos and the fans of his number one ranked team, but it will be hard to think of anything else. Revenge will be the headline as the Lobos welcome in McKinney North’s Bulldogs in the third meeting between the two programs. Last season, Longview visited McKinney ISD Stadium on a cold, windy Thursday night only to suffer a 37-35 defeat that saw the Lobos turn the ball over five different times on top of recording 13 penalties for over 120 yards. It was a nightmare for the Lobos in every which way, one that saw McKinney North’s Elijah Alexander completely steal the show offensively for the Bulldogs as he tallied up four touchdowns on the night. The second loss in district play last season marked just the second time under head coach John King that Longview had suffered two district losses within the same season. The two teams enter Longview’s Lobo Stadium in a cross road. For Longview, the Lobos are looking to clinch a playoff berth AND at least a top two seed within the district meaning a home playoff game regardless of what happens the rest of the day. The Lobos are the district’s lone remaining unbeaten team within the district. McKinney North, however, comes in at 3-1 in district play. For the Bulldogs, they will be coming in thinking a win would get them back into the district title race. McKinney North’s lone loss came to Lancaster, while Lancaster lost to Longview previously. A loss for the Bulldogs see the Lobos and Tigers pulling away while the Bulldogs would drop into battling for the third and fourth spots in district play. Last week, the Lobos sat their star backs in Taylor Tatum and Alijah Johnson but got a massive effort out of sophomore sensation Kelvin Washington, who registered four touchdowns on the night, in a 42-19 victory over the North Mesquite Stallions. The win was Longview’s eighth in a row over North Mesquite. The Lobos saw their mark of surrendering just eight points in the second half come to an end as a fumble late in the fourth quarter ended the shutout streak that had lasted since the third quarter of the second game of the season. The defense did not allow North Mesquite to pass midfield the entire half, once again. McKinney North got a highly emotional victory over Lufkin in three overtimes that saw the Bulldogs overcome a 17 point deficit in the second half before the two teams traded scores back and forth until being forced to decide a likely playoff spot, at least for Lufkin, on trading two point conversion attempts. McKinney North returns to Lobo Stadium for the second time in three years, following their 2020 Black Friday visit. The Bulldogs actually grabbed the lead early in that first meeting between the two programs, before the Lobos rolled up 340 yards rushing in a 55-10 beatdown of McKinney North. Friday’s contest will only be the 6th meeting between Longview and a McKinney ISD school, but it will be the second of the season. Longview first met McKinney High back in 1937, knocking off the Lions 32-7. The Lobos met McKinney Boyd in a 2013 playoff contest that saw the Lobos walk away with a 27-10 victory before also opening the 2022 season with a 36-10 victory over Boyd. The Lobos, of course, have been in a district with North the last three years. Longview is scheduled to meet McKinney High to open the 2023 season, as well as visit the Bulldogs in October 2023. Longview returns to Lobo Stadium for their 250th appearance inside the stadium they’ve called home since 1976. The Lobos are currently riding an 11-game winning streak at home, having won 205 of the previous 249 games they’ve played there. Highly documented, the Lobos have rarely lost at home under head coach John King, who just picked up his 204th victory as Lobo head coach. Longview sits at 86-6 under King at Lobo Stadium, but even more impressively, the Lobos are 56-2 in district ball games at home against King.
