LOBOS TAKE SECOND CONFERENCE TILT IN WALK OVER TIGERS
LONGVIEW - Though stymied momentarily in the first quarter as Tiger back, Sutton, returned the starting kickoff 38 yards to the Lobo 42, from there Bonner rushed it to the 20 where Buddy Attaway batted down a fourth down pass by Dan Nix, Coach Pete Shotwell's hard hitting Lobos gained momentum gradually and ran and passed their way to an easy 46 to 0 win over the visiting Tiger aggregation.

The game, witnessed by 3,500 fans, wasn't the type that stirs continued interest, but it did show that the Lobos far outclassed their opponents in winning their second District 11-AA tilt by a one point greater margin than in their 1943 meeting. The visitors made only 65 yards from scrimmage to the Lobos 504, counting touchdown runs, and making only four first downs to Longview's 17.

The Lobos gained 45 yard passing in eight attempts, to 17 yards in 12 tries.

Longview punted only once, Abie Aycock kicking for 38 yards, as the highly touted Dan Nix failed to live up to advance noticed, due in part perhaps to the Lobos hard charging line, the Tigers averaging just 26 yard in 10 tries.

The expected duel between the two opposing fullbacks, named Young, failed to materialize due to an injury to Mitchell Young, Tiger fullback. On the other hand the Lobo fullback, Joe Young, played his best game of the season as he tore through the Tiger line almost as he pleased, scoring once on a two yard plunge in the third period.

Abie Aycock and Art Rowland broke away for beautiful touchdown runs, each scoring twice, Abie on runs of 21 and 53 yards and Art on 28 and 10 yard gallops.

Warren Poe filled in nicely at right ball in place of Bobby Dill, who was kept out of the game because of a knee injury. Warren made several effective blocks, which aided materially in the scoring.

Gerry Mullikin took over Poe's vacated right end position and did a great job, his high catch on Aycock's 24 yard pass down on the two yard line paved the way for Longview's fifth touchdown, and was one of the game's highlights.

The Lobo line did Yeoman duty in crushing the Tiger forwards with fast charging, hard driving tactics, but proved a bit over anxious as over 100 yards were lost on long runs because of offside penalties, the Lobos getting set back 9 times for 45 yards.

Coach Shotwell used 42 boys in downing the Tigers, the second and third stringers more than holding their own, as Robert King, a substitute half made a flashy 66 yard touchdown run.

Johnny Rogerson, a third team member, wearing jersey 22 credited to B. McGaw on the program which confused the 3,500 fans, intercepted a Tiger pass and then from scrimmage on the first played, picked his holes well to score straight up from the 23 yard line. B. McGaw did not get into the game.

The Lobos not point for the Kilgore Bulldogs, who lost to Marshall Friday 13 to 0. This loss will put the Bulldogs in a fighting mood and will test the Lobos to the limit. This game ill be played at Kilgore Friday at 8:00 p.m.
