    FULL GAME LOG

    GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW:
    And so, we meet again. For the first time since 2005, the Longview Lobos and the Lufkin Panthers were not set to face off in the 2020 season. While the teams had agreed to a non-district series prior to realignment, Lufkin being paced in a 9-team district ruined the hope for a game this season. Until, every thing fell exactly the way it needed to so that the two squads could meet for the 84th time. The two squads will face off for the 11th time in the post season, and for the 4th time in the post season in the last 7 seasons. The only season, in the last 7, that the two schools didn't meet when they were in the same class was in 2016. The Lobos have won all three of the previous playoff meetings in those last 7 seasons, including a 28-point comeback in 2014. The last playoff meeting came in 2017, when the two teams traded touchdowns back and forth the entire second half. Before Kamden Perry hauled in a touchdown pass from Haynes King with under a minute to go to bring home the 33-32 victory in the Class 6A Division II State Quarterfinals. The Lobos roll into their bi-district contest with Lufkin on a two-game winning streak that saw the Lobos outscore their opponents 113-24. Their latest victory came over the Tyler Lions, 58-14. The win for Longview was the largest margin of victory in their 97-game series with the Lions, and the 58 points was the first time the Lobos had ever scored 50 or more on Tyler High. Kaden Meredith's three touchdown gave him 55 for his career, tying the school record for most touchdowns in a career. Meredith was pulled after the first quarter, when Longview led 35-0. Longview is entering the playoffs for the 46th time in their history, and the 20th consecutive season dating back to 2001. The Lufkin Panthers clinched their 23rd consecutive playoff berth, dating back to the 1998 season, with their second best offensive performance of the season in a 56-13 victory over Waller. As Longview has dominated their last two opponents, the Panthers have rolled over their last two to the tune of a 114-13 scoreline. The Panthers were sitting at 3-4 on the season following their loss to College Station (45-21). After a forfeit win vs Cleveland, the Panthers saved their season with back to back wins over Conroe Caney Creek and Waller. Lufkin's 6 wins on the season are the fewest for the Pack since 2014, when the Panthers finished 6-5 following a 43-42 loss to Longview in the first round. Lufkin heads to Lobo Stadium for their 23rd all-time visit. Longview has won 7 in a row over the Panthers at Lobo Stadium, dating back to a 2003 14-0 loss to then #5 Lufkin. Overall, Longview has won 4 in a row over their rivals to the South. And following an 11-game winning streak by Lufkin, Longview has retaken control of the series, winning 12 of the last 16 meetings. The last three contests, however, have all finished as one score games. Last season, Longview rolled into Abe Martin Stadium and grabbed a 24-21 victory over the Panthers for just the second time since 1997. The two teams have faced off 10 times overall in the post season, with Longview winning 6 of the 10. The first playoff meeting came back in 1936, when Lufkin knocked off Longview 12-0 in the old Lobo Stadium. Longview got revenge the next season though with a 19-0 victory at Panther Stadium on their way to the 1937 1A State Title. The two teams wouldn't meet again until 1940, when the Lobos scored two 4th quarter tallies to knock off the Panthers 19-12 at Lobo Stadium. In 1942, Lufkin hosted Longview and ran the Lobos out of the stadium in a 33-0 beat down. In 1947, the Lobos were held to just 52 yards on the day to prove why they were massive underdogs. But it didn't matter as an extra point made all the difference in a 7-6 victory over the Panthers at old Lobo Stadium. The two teams wouldn't meet in post season play again until 2002, when they would meet for the third time that season. At an overcapacity Rose Stadium, Lufkin kicked a field goal in the dying seconds of the game to knock off Longview, 24-21, in the 5A Division II State Quarterfinal. Lufkin would again knock Longview off in 2004, before 27,000+ at Homer Bryce Stadium in Nacogdoches. Longview jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead in the second quarter, and led 21-17 heading into the 4th quarter. But Lufkin's Jovorski Lane was too much as the Panther won 31-21 in the 5A Division II Regional round meeting. Longview and Lufkin would meet at Rose Stadium again in 2014, when the Lobos knocked off Lufkin after coming from 28-point down and completing a two-point conversion with under 40 seconds to go in a 43-42 Lobo win. The two teams would have a rematch in 2015 at Rose, once again, where Longview rolled out with a strong second half in a 31-10 victory. And in 2017, Longview would advance to the Class 6A Division II State Semi-Final after Kamden Perry's leaping touchdown to knock the Panthers out by a 33-32 scoreline. Longview will be hosting fourth consecutive home playoff game as they enter Friday. The Lobos haven't lost at Lobo Stadium in post season play since a 24-14 loss to Bryan in 1984. It'll be a huge rivalry game in the 5A Division I Bi-District round this Friday. Another one in the storied history of their series.

    ON THIS DATE IN LOBO HISTORY: December 11th
    In 1937, Hardy Miller, Otto Paul Burandt and Frank Lebus tallied for the Lobos, as Longview defeated Temple with a second half comeback, 19-12, in the Class 1A State Quarterfinal at Lobo Stadium. Longview trailed 12-6 at halftime before Lebus scored the winning tally in the fourth quarter from three yards out.
    In 2010, Longview grabbed a 17-0 halftime lead over Denton Guyer before the unthinkable happened. Despite still leading 27-21, and a chance to run the clock out, the Lobos still snapped the ball with 8/9/10 seconds left on the play clock. The Wildcats forced a fourth down with 17 seconds remaining and proceeded to block the punt. Quint Gardener hauled in a 15 yard passing score on the next play, and with the extra point, Denton Guyer would avenged their past two losses to Longview with a 28-27 win over the Lobos in the Class 5A Division II State Semi-Finals.
