    FULL GAME LOG

    GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW:
    #3 in the state. 10-0 record. Scored 80 points in four contests. Averaging over 60 points a game. Longview came into Mesquite Memorial Stadium in the Class 5A Division I Area round knowing that the Lancaster Tigers were every bit as good as their record and stats suggested. Slight underdogs, the game looked to be an uphill climb right off the bat, as the Tigers ran for a 75 yard touchdown on the first place from scrimmage. Thankfully for the Lobos, the game didn't end there. After back and forth punches, the Lobos ran off 42 consecutive points to take full control of their game on the way to a dominating 56-20 victory. The win avenged last season's Area Round loss to Dallas Jesuit for the Lobos, while the Tigers head out of the Area round for the second time in the last three seasons. Kaden Meredith had two touchdowns in the win, to push his season total to 27 total and 26 rushing scores. Both are tied for second all-time in Longview single season history, one shy of the school record. Jalen Hale picked up two touchdowns in the win as well, pushing his season total to 10 receiving scores. Hale became the 5th Lobo receiver to tally at least 10 receiving touchdowns in a single season. His 13 receiving scores in his two years on varsity sits tied for 5th all-time in Lobo history. He is just a sophomore. With the win over the #3 team in the state, the Lobos improve to 4-0 under John King as head coach against the third ranked team. Waiting for them in the third round of the playoffs, is another ranked squad. One the Lobos have no history with. The No. 1 ranked Denton Ryan Raiders. The Raiders have steamrolled most of their opponents this season, carrying the No. 1 ranking the entire season. Denton Ryan reached the Division I Region II Semi-Finals with a dominating victory over the College Station Cougars, a game that saw the Raiders lead 52-7 before the Cougars added some fourth quarter scores late. The Lobos and Raiders meet for the first time at Mesquite Memorial Stadium. Last Friday's victory over Lancaster was Longview's first playoff victory at Memorial since a 2001 win over Dallas Kimball. Overall, Longview is 9-3 at the stadium with the last loss coming in 2010 to North Mesquite which ended a 36-game district winning streak that snapped seven seasons. While Longview and Denton Ryan have never met on the football field, the Lobos have met a Denton ISD school four times in their history. Longview is 3-1 all-time against Denton ISD, with the Lobos meeting Denton High back in 1950 in a 41-0 win and meeting Denton Guyer three consecutive seasons in the State Semi-Finals (twice in 4A and once in 5A). The last meeting came in 2010, when the Lobos jumped out to a 17-0 lead before the Wildcats came rushing back. Longview held a 27-21 lead with under a minute to go before Guyer blocked a punt and on the next play scored the winning touchdown in a 28-27 Wildcat victory. The Lobos have met the state's top ranked team five times under John King. The Lobos are 1-4 in those games, with the win coming in 2009 over Allen. Being an underdog isn't common for Longview, but it is something that..in the past...has brought out the best in Longview. It will be a huge task for the Lobos to walk out of Memorial with a win this week, but one thing you won't see is Longview back down from a challenge.

      Ryan would potentially be competing for a 6A SC. One of the best 5A teams in the 6A era, ever.

        They have a really really good team. I'm not sure anyone is beating them this year. My question is the same one I asked last year does there lack of depth and playing starters both ways come back to hunt them later on.

          Only if they get the injury/covid bugs. Ryan has been at the highest classification before but it has been a while

            We'll be massive underdogs this week. No one is giving us a chance to even compete.

            More than fine with that.

              Longview plays their best when they’re the underdog. The bigger, the better.
