It's the rivalry that has dominated Lancaster's schedule for the previous four season. First, in 2020, the Lobos knocked off the #2 ranked Tigers 56-22 at Mesquite Memorial before watching Longview do the same less than a year later in a 34-14 defeat once again in the Area Round of the post season. Then came realignment, which saw Longview and Lancaster enter into the same district for the first time. Last year, the Tigers at halftime looked poised to knock off the Lobos at their own home. However, Longview pitched a second half shut out to knock off the Tigers once again, 21-13. It was the fourth straight win for the Lobos to open the series against one another. Now, Longview heads to Lancaster for the first time inside the confides of Beverly Humphrey Tiger Stadium. The two teams have taken completely different paths thus far in 2023. Longview opened the season with a close defeat to 6A state ranked McKinney High, 23-21, which saw the Lobos fall in the final seconds on a late field goal. Since then, the Lobos have rolled over their competition, outscoring them 112-14 with one game called at halftime. Lancaster has taken the opposite. Struggling in their season opener behind five turnovers, the Tigers knocked off Dallas Skyline 28-14 before getting blasted by two time defending state champion South Oak Cliff by 21. Despite a close loss to Denton Guyer at home, the Tigers saw their district opener again fall by the waist side in a shocking 28-21 loss to the McKinney North Bulldogs. For the Lobos, a 42-0 win over rivalry Lufkin has Longview riding high. Despite having their game cut in half against Tyler Legacy, the Lobos showed no fatigued outside of the first drive of the contest. After that, Longview used a stiffling defense and massive special teams play to give their offense great field position to dominate the Panthers all night long. The Tigers saw North jump out to a 21-0 lead, and while they climbed back into the contest, losing star back Kewan Lacy at the start of the fourth quarter really dimmed any hope of completing the comeback. Tiger Stadium will be the 122nd stadium Longview will have played in in their long, storied history.

On the surface looks like a mismatch then you see who they lost to and played well against. This should be great and technically could decide the District championship. I am assuming this is your biggest challenge. 

I'm still convinced Forney is our biggest challenge. They haven't played anyone with a pulse but...man. They've just been so efficient and so impressive. And we have to go to a stadium we've never been to.

Fleener will have those boys ready to play that first weekend of October.

Before the season I picked Lancaster to win this district. Now that we are 4 games in. I've seen enough. Longview wins with no problem. 

Played some big boy games and played them close. I wouldn’t be so confident. However, Longview is a big boy program in their own regard.

I mean y'all just struggled with North Mesquite lol

You were same person that thought we would get drove by Mesquite horn lol. And Lancaster is 1-3 and about to be 1-4 but go off lol. If we were 1-3 we would’ve been told we’re the worst team in the district lmao. Lancaster will be 1-4 when they play us and still people will think they are the second best team lmao. 1-6 will be coming there way in 2 weeks.
