LONGVIEW STUNS TEXARKANA, 18-6
LONGVIEW - Longview's spunky Lobos shocked the District 4-AAA Champion Texarkana Tigers, 18-6, here Friday night in a drizzling rain, handing the visitors their first defeat of the season.

The upset, one of the biggest in Texas schoolboy football this season, had no bearing on the title race, for the Tigers had already clinched a playoff berth.

The Lobos, out of title contention, outplayed the highly-rated Tigers statistically and point-wise after an evenly-played first half.

Longview scored first, getting a touchdown in the first quarter. Tony Rothrock rammed over from the 2-yard line for the six points.

Texarkana, 5th ranked in the News AA APoll, recovered a Lobo fumble in the second period and marched 49 yards to paydirt with George McKinney scoring from the 12.

Deadlocked 6-6 at halftime, the Lobos came bouncing back in the third with Jerry Crawford passing 18-yards to Rothrock for a touchdown. A recovered fumble on the Texarkana 37 opened the gates for the touchdown that spoiled the Tigers' fine record of six victories, two ties in eight games previous to Friday night.

The final Longview marker came in the fourth period after the Lobos had halted a long Texarkana drive on the Longview 15. In 14 plays, the Lobos scored. Dub Thomas diving three yards.
