LOBOS OUTDUEL WILDCATS, 27-16
RICHARDSON - Fred Talley ran for two touchdowns and Erin Roerecke kicked a pair of field goals as the Longview Lobos remained undefeated this season with a 27-16 win over Lake Highlands Friday night at Wildcat-Ram Stadium.

Talley went over 100 yards rushing for the second straight game, picking up 154 yards on 24 carries. His 7-yard touchdown with 2:55 left in the third quarter rallied the Lobos from a 16-14 deficit.

"We knew coming in this was going to be a big football game," said Longview head coach Robert Bero. "We knew that they had their backs not against the wall, but with a loss and playing at home for the first time, we knew we were going to play an emotional football team. I give our team credit for coming out and getting ahead.

"They battled back like the great program they (Lake Highlands) are. But then I think our program took over also and we did a great job after we got down."

Lake Highlands (1-2) took advantage of a miscue on the Lobos' special teams and then made a defensive stand.

After taking the second half kickoff and stalling near midfield, Longview punter Jay Hurst was ruled to have touched his knee on the ground prior to punting and the Wildcats took possession at the Lobo 23-yard line. On the second play, quarterback Sean Stiggers scored on an 18-yard run at the 10:13 mark.

Longview stalled again on its next series as penalties and a defensive pressure by the Wildcats forced the Lobos to punt from their own end zone. Jeremy Boyce ran in the final 18 yards to complete an eight-play, 44-yard drive with 4:20 showing.

The Lobos, however, quickly answered behind Talley, who carried on four of five plays. Longview was also aided by a pair of face mask calls against Lake Highlands. A personal foul by the Wildcats on the kickoff set up the 60-yard drive.

"I credit our offensive line," Bero said. "They did a great job of blocking on both (Talley) scoring drives. They gave Fred and Jesse James some holes to run through. Those two guys are very talented and they responded."

Roerecke closed out the scoring for Longview, taking advantage of two Lake Highlands fumbles, with field goals of 20 and 36 yards. Marcus Jordan recovered a Wildcat fumble for the Lobos and Lee Jackson intercepted a pass to set up the fourth quarter kicks.

The Wildcats opened the scoring on a 20-yard Coleman Duckworth field goal, taking the opening possession all the way to Longview's three-yard line. However, a couple of mishandled snaps by Stilley stalled Lake Highland's drive.

Longview responded with a 12-play, 79-yard drive with Hurst threading a pass between two defenders for an 11-yard touchdown strike to Ben Price and a 7-3 Lobo advantage. One series later, Talley led Longview on a 47-yard scoring drive in seven plays, busting across from the 1.

The Lobos improve to 3-0 with the victory.
