LOBOS SCORE TWICE IN LAST HALF TO TOP DRAGONS
LONGVIEW - A scrappy Longview Lobo eleven that got off to a slow start half staged a comeback in the last half to defeat the Nacogdoches Dragons 13 to 0 before 3,778 howling football fans at Lobo Stadium Friday night.

The two teams played a fairly even game in the first two quarters, see-sawing back and forth and each trying to jockey into scoring position. Both teams worked from the "T," but neither could push across a marker.

The Lobos drew first blood int he second half shortly after Jones had kicked to the ten. Layton fumbled, but recovered and ran 25 yards to the 35 yard line. Allen's pass was intercepted by Jones not he 45, and Jones scampered to the 27 before he was brought down. Matthews had replaced Jones as the man down under in the "T" and handed the ball off to Jones, who broke through left tackle to go the distance. Jones try for extra point failed, and the game stood at 6 to 0 for Longview.

The last scoring came in the last period. There had been various exchanges of plays when Reynolds covered Murray's fumble while Murray was attempting to punt and it was first down on the Lobos' 46 yard line. Matthews handed one to Lemmons, who got 11 yards and a first down on Nacogdoches' 42 yard line. Matthews gave the ball to Jones, who picked up eight yards. Lemmons took the ball from Matthews and got 7, going to the 26. Matthew got a yard at center. Lemmons got 4, placing the ball on the 20.

Matthews got the six at right end, putting the ball on the 15 yard line. Matthews handed the ball to Jones who ran to the seven, but Longview drew a 15 yard penalty for illegal use of hands. The penalty was from the point of the foul and placed the ball on the 26, and it was first down.

Matthew handed the ball to Jones, who got 10 yards, and Dodson lost a yard. Matthews lateral led to Jones,w ho in turn lateral led back to Matthews, and Matthews ran the ball 13 yards to the 5. It was fourth down and one foot to go when Jones got two yards at right end.

It was first down and three yards to go for a touchdown, and Jones, operating from a single wing, got two of those. Smith of Nacogdoches got hurt on the play. Jones went over right tackle for the score, and kicked extra point, making the score 13 to 0.

Maco Stewart pulled a single wind back when his team operating inside the 10-yard line, and this strategy paid of in the final touchdown.

Nacogdoches was playing three men in the center and two men winged up on each side in an effort to stop "Sonny" Jones. When down under and handling the ball to the other boys who plunged the line, the Longview backs could penetrate this defense at will.

Matthews turned in a good performance for himself while he was working in the key position in the "T." Allen of Nacogdoches did likewise, and flung 15 passes from the "T", but his receivers had slippery fingers and couldn't hold but two of them.

Bobby Blakely stacked up the Dragon line time and time again and came through many times to bail the Nacogdoches ball carriers behind the line.

The hands of both high schools turned in excellent entertainment features before halves. Longview honored the coach by spelling out "M-A-C-O" and playing " For He's a Jolly Good Fellow."

Among others who scouted both Nacogdoches and Longview were Jimmy Jones and Earl Maisel from Texarkana.
