    FULL GAME LOG

    GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
    Revenge. Following their lone bye week of the 2018 season, the Lobos come back into play looking for revenge for their lone loss of the 2017 district campaign. Last season's 52-34 loss was just the 2nd time in team history that Longview had allowed 50 or more points to a Metroplex school and marked the lone loss for the 2018 season up until the 6A Division II State Semi-Finals where the Lobos fell to Waco Midway. Longview, 5-0 on the season, was also undefeated coming into last season's Mesquite Horn contest at 3-0. The loss helped spur the Lobos forward all the way to the second to last game of the season, before falling on a missed field goal in the dying seconds. The Lobos reached the 5-0 mark after coming from behind five separate times and taking the lead in the fourth quarter over a stubborn Rockwall side in a 42-35 shootout. Mesquite Horn has seen last season's success go completely out of their minds, as the Jags have battled to a winless 0-6 record. Despite opening the season with two State Champions in Allen and Highland Park, not much was thought of Horn's 0-2 start but since, it's been a continuing battle of disappointment. The Jags fell to Cedar Hill and a close loss to Arlington had the Jags sitting at 0-4 going into district play. The biggest upset loss was their 20-17 loss to last season's 1-9 Mesquite Skeeters. This past week, the Jags battled but couldn't overcome the dynamic duo in Rockwall as the Jackets defeated Horn, 41-35. This week's meeting marks the 12th meeting between the two schools, dating back to 2004 when Horn moved to 5A for the first time after opening in 2002. Longview dominated the series for the first seven games, before the Jags finally knocked off the Lobos 25-17 at EH Hanby Stadium in 2012. The loss in 2012 set Longview back to the 3rd spot in district, the only time Longview has not finished first or second in district play under head coach John King. After winning the next two meetings, the Lobos dropped last season's decision to mark a 9-2 overall series record. Horn comes into the contest not only winless on this season, but also winless in Lobo Stadium. Longview has won all five previous meetings between the two schools underneath the Piney Wood trees of East Texas. Horn's closest contest at the stadium was a 13-8 loss in 2010, where the Jags actually grabbed a lead into the 4th quarter before falling. Last time the Lobos and Jags met in Lobo Stadium, Longview jumped out to a 41-17 lead heading into the 4th quarter before the Jaguars battled back to make it a game scoring 20 points in the final frame. Longview is looking to improve to 6-0 on the season for the first time since 2005. The Lobos have won 10 consecutive games inside Lobo Stadium, the last loss coming to John Tyler in 2016. Longivew is 65-5 under John King inside the comfy confines of Lobo Stadium, with one loss being a forfeit. In district games, Longview is 40-1 under King at Lobo Stadium. Overall in district play, the Lobos are 79-6 under John King. Currently, the Lobos have won 11 consecutive regular season games and are currently on a seven game district winning streak. The Jags are on a seven game overall losing streak, dating back to last season after their season ending 34-24 loss to Coppell. Horn's last victory came in the bi-district round last year in a 45-24 victory over Conroe Oak Ridge.

              Safe travels to both programs in this one.
              Don`t think it will be close,,it is what it will be ,just hope Jags compete and don`t quit as they been trying to get a "W" last few weeks.
              Playoff hopes not happening for Jags ,,see what and how coaches and kiddos come out prepared and focused.Hopefully snooze-fest won`t be in-Stowe after 1st quarter.

                      My thoughts, just based on what I've seen the past two weeks...

                      How Horn played last night may have set them up for the worse case scenario heading into this week. Rockwall came out really flat in the first half (for the 5th game in a row) and Horn punched them in the mouth, which should alert the Lobos to the fact that Horn is better than their record implies. As an individual player, Givens may still be the single most dynamic player in this district and he does have (some) talent around him, but not enough to compete with Longview for four quarters. Film from last night's first half should be enough to guarantee that Longview comes out ready to play, which doesn't bode well for the Jags. Also, the incredible lack of discipline from Horn really troubled me last night. Not just the 2 key players getting ejected for throwing punches in a game whose outcome was still up for grabs, but just the overall number of penalties in general tells me that their is just an overall lack of control in that program right now. What good feelings Horn may have gained from stringing some offensive stats together last night may be very fleeting.

                      I think that Longview (at home) may win this be however many points they want.

                        Yup gimme Longview by 3 TD's min.
                        After last nights game vs. Rockwall I got a lil smile cause the Jags came to playlike teams of the past, but to no avail Rockwall was clearly the better team.

                        This week will be no difference playing one of the best teams in the state hands down, the Lobos, at their home field will be terrible to watch or hear for Jag fans.

                        Good luck to both teams, and hopefully its a clean game and no injuries during this game.!

                          Yea, no lol. Rockwall was up and ready for the Longview game, no doubt.

                          On Horn, I don't think anything Horn did this week was going to change Longview's view on this game. We allowed 52 points last season to this team, and they kept us from a district championship and a perfect regular season. We flat out were embarrassed the last time our two squads met.

                          The Lobos will be ready. After a week off, the Lobos will want to hit Horn dead straight in the mouth, I fully believe that. Horn's record has nothing to do with this one. They're a solid team that are more than capable of defeating us.

                          I expect a really good effort by the Lobos this coming Friday.
