LIONS MOVE CLOSER TO TITLE WITH 18-13 WIN
LONGVIEW - Tyler's Lions continued their march toward the 1941 District 11 championship by shading the Longview Lobos 18-13 here yesterday afternoon before a near-capacity crowd of 5,500 persons who were treated to a real thriller before the shooting was over.

The Lions, after feeling out the Wolves for a couple of minutes, pushed over a touchdown midway through the first heat. Lonnie Clark's punt carried to the 29 and Wayne Burnett, pile-driving halfback for the Lions, returned it 15 yards to the Lions 44. Bryan Davis broke loose for 21 more and a first down and then, on second down, Burnett picked up some good blocking on a sweep and made 16 yards and a first down on the Lobo 16. From there it took him one more play to barrel through the right side of the line for a touchdown. Hay Jackson's try for point was sour.

It didn't look so hot for the home club but the Wolves were still very much in the game. Jackson's kickoff was taken by Joe adams on the Lobo 13 and he returned it to the 31. Adams picked up two https://lobohistory.com, then passed to Freudiger for nine and a first on the Lobo 42. Then Adams whipped a short pass to Freudiger a little beyond the scrimmage line and "Chili" cut back toward the middle to pick up some blockers. They materialized and helped him plenty as he threaded his way through the secondary and on across for the tying points. They play netted 58 yards.

Adams' try for point after was bad and the score remained 6-6.

The Lions drove 80 yards for their second score - and it might have been farther. Clark got off a quick kick that carried 67 yards but it died about three inches over in the end zone for a touchback, so the ball was brought out to the 20. Johnson then began stabbing the Lobo secondary with short passes, shovel passes, everything to carry the ball down to the 46. Then he whipped a short one to Burnett that was good for about five yards and Burnett stared another long goal ward jaunt. He got some terrific downfield blocking and finally went over standing up with most of the Lobos blocked out of the play. The play gained 54 yards.

The extra point was missed by Bobby Henry and the score stood at 12-6, where it remained at halftime.

The Lions gathered in their last six points midway through the third quarter when Johnson, passing off reverses as well as in the orthodox manner, sent shaft after shaft to sticky-fingered receivers, finally firing one to Burnett from the seven that was good for a score. Jackson's attempted conversion was blocked.

That is when the thrills really started. Ed Hennig, Tyler coach who had been sparing with his substitutions to this point, sent a few of his second string in and they met with pretty fair success. Then, with the ball on the Lobo 35, Adams tossed a pass that was incomplete. Hennig sent in his entire second string line at one whack - for one play. That play was a honey, though.

With the fresh Lion line in, the Lobos went back into the archives and brought out the play that won for them the 1937 state championship. None of the boys on the squad now were on the club then, but the '37 crew worked it only a little better than this year's did. The little gem produced a touchdown each time.

When the ball was snapped to Adams, the Lobo line let the whole Lion forward wall through to the passer. They went for him, and Adams flipped an aerial over their heads to Clark, who waited behind the line of scrimmage. Clark, with the whole front wall blocking for him, charged into the secondary. He was stopped twice but he shook off the tacklers - about five of them - and finally hit the open roar. When he did, there was never any doubt. About the Lion 35 a Lobo signaled for him to slow down as there was no particular hurry. He ran on over, untouched, and with two blockers still escorting him, a 65-yard gain.

Charlie Johnson kicked the goal to run the count to 18-13 and a lot of 6-point money down the drain.

But the game was not yet over. A tricky kickoff by the Lobos, taken on the Lion 35 by Rogers, started the next play. Rogers ran laterally along the 35 and lateraled to Hanna, who reversed his field and ran to the Lobo 34 where he was hit. He fumbled and several players on both sides got hands on it before it was dead. Officials gave it to the Lions at that point. Four plays were run into the line before the gun ended the game.

The Lions showed a great passing attack with Johnson doing the flinging. He was all but perfect as he fired 26 passed and completed 16 of them.

The Lobos, on the other hand, tossed 21 passes and completed only four of them; but two of the completions were for touchdowns both for more than 50 yards. In total yardage from passing Longview excelled 137 to 133.

The whole Lobo line looked good, with Shaw, Boswell and Warren sticking out. Clark, Adams, Hearne, Jeffries, Eberhardt and Johnson also looked good as they played their final game of the year before the home folks.
