    FULL GAME LOG

    GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
    To open the 2021 season, the Lobos had a chance to end Denton Ryan's 59-game regular season winning streak. Longview failed on the opening week of the year with that task. Last Friday, Longview got a second chance to end a long winning streak, this time the 32-game overall winning streak of the Bryant Hornets. Despite two turnovers and an inconsistent offense, the Lobos finally broke through with ending a long streak as they knocked off the 3-time defending 7A Arkansas State Champions by a 24-21 scoreline. The Lobos, who improved to 3-1 on the season, found themselves trailing right before half and late in the 3rd quarter only to quickly turn things around and grab a 24-14 lead midway through the third quarter. Bryant was able to add a touchdown on the final play of the game. The win for Longview improved them to 18-0 all-time on Homecoming night under head coach John King. The Lobos' last loss on homecoming night in 2003, when the No. 9 ranked Tyler Lee Red Raiders defeated the Lobos 18-14, after trailing 14-3 at halftime. Longview also won their 750th game as a football program, dating back to 1909. They become the 8th program in Texas high school football history to reach that 750 mark. The Lobos now turn to the games that matter, in district play. The Lobos open their 18th season under head coach John King for district play, with a 15-2 record on the opening week of district action. Longview's only losses in week 1 of district play came against Mesquite in 2012 & Mesquite Horn in 2017...both at EH Hanby Stadium. West Mesquite enters district play with a 2-2 record, but easily could be 4-0 on the year. The Wranglers fell to Poteet, 22-19, after leading the Pirates late in the game before a blocked punt turned the tide. The Wranglers also led Keller Timber Creek 28-6 before the Falcons took over the contest in the second half. West Mesquite has not won a district opener since 2017, after losing to Denton Ryan to open district play in 2018 & 2019 and to Longview in 2020. The Lobos return to Mesquite Memorial Stadium, after their previous visit in 2020 that ended their season against Denton Ryan, 27-9. Longview holds a 13-4 all-time record at Mesquite Memorial. Longview's last regular season loss at Mesquite Memorial came in 2010, when the Lobos blew a 14-3 lead in the 4th quarter to North Mesquite losing 24-14.
