    FULL GAME LOG

    GAME PREVIEW & SERIES REVIEW
    And so...we meet again. Two bitter old rivals meet for the fourth time in three years in post season play after two unexpected victories propelled their teams to the 6A Division II State Quarterfinals. The Lobos are fresh off a victory that saw them fall behind 14-0 early in the 2nd quarter only to claw their way back before halftime and take the lead, never to relinquish it. One final grasp wasn't enough for #8 Klein Collins to come from behind and Longview held onto the victory, 30-24. On the other side, the Lufkin Panthers saw themselves dominate the Spring Westfield Mustangs before nearly squandering a 14-3 lead. The Pack were able to hold on in New Caney though, and bring home a defensive 14-11 victory. The two teams now turn their attention to each other. An opening week win for the Lobos over Lufkin, 35-16, might give some fans the idea that Longview will walk away with the victory...but leave no doubt that these are two very different teams from that opening week clash. A young Lufkin squad has matured and reeled off 7 consecutive victories on the season after falling to the Woodlands in their only other blemish. The Pack are into the State Quarterfinals for the first time since 2005 and are enjoying their highest win total in a single season since 2006 when the Pack finished 11-1. Longview, on the other hand, has since an even bigger difference as injuries had decimated the Lobos early in the season and a quarterback change four weeks into the season following the loss to Mesquite Horn has propelled Longview all the way into the final 8. Longview's Haynes King became the 3rd Longview quarterback to ever throw for 20 touchdowns in a season with his four touchdown day against Klein Collins, and improved himself to 9-0 as the starter of the green and gold. Longview's Jaylin Brown, fresh off a week where he broke the record for most career receiving touchdowns in a Lobo uniform, pulled in three against the Tigers to broke the single season receiving touchdown record. The two teams have faced off 9th previous times in the playoffs, with Longview holding a 5-4 edge. The two teams have faced off four times since John King became a coach at Longview High. Once in 2002 when King was an assistant, the Pack edged the Lobos 24-21 at Rose Stadium. In 2004, in King's first season as the head coach, the Panthers came from behind to defeat Longview 31-21 at Homer Bryce Stadium after trailing entering the fourth quarter. In 2014, Longview erased a 28-0 hole against Lufkin and came from behind to win 43-42 at Rose Stadium. And in their last meeting in 2015, at Rose Stadium, the two teams were level at 10 going into halftime before Longview dominated the second half and rushed their way to a 31-10 victory. Since ending the Pack's 11-game winning streak over Longview in 2007, the Lobos have rolled to a 9-4 record over the Panthers and more recently, since 2011, Longview has gained a 7-2 record over the Pack. It's a game everyone in East Texas was hoping to see for a 6A Region II Final when the playoffs began, and it's one we're getting. What a showdown Saturday night will be!

                Lufkin will alway be up for us. We both want the bragging rights for east texas. They are a much inproved team and so are we. This will be one for the books. We don't even have to exchange game film.

                  I wish it was KC v Lufkin...however, if you're a real fan of TXHSFB it doesn't get much better than LV v Lufkin for a spot in the final four

                      Just can't sleep lol. I'll go in depth on this match-up later. Both teams look like the best version of what they can be at this point. This is going to be one of those classic Lufkin vs Longview games. It's coming down to a kick at some point lol.

                          This is probably my favourite match-up, because i don't think anyone ever saw it happening like this. Both these teams by experts picks shouldn't be here and it will be one heck of a game. I picked the Lobo's in a close one, but it will be a slobber-knocker. This is a rivalry and you can never count either team out in a rivalry, let alone in the playoffs.

                            Can't blame ya for wanting to see KC vs Lufkin. I'm in the same boat, I'd rather it be Trinity vs Permian, but sometimes that's just how it plays out. Will be one heck of a game though.

                              Same here. Know we’ll see you because Lufkin faithful will spill over to whatever side we’re on. Also know that whomever comes out of this, the other will be there supporting the winner in the semifinals!
