Last Friday, the Longview Lobos (2-1) handed the 7th ranked Monroe Ouachita Lions (1-2) a 38-7 loss to win their second straight game. The win was Longview's 10th victory in the past 11 games against Louisiana schools and their 24th victory in their past 27 games.     

The Lobos started quick against Ouachita by returning the opening kick off all the back to the Lion six yard line. The Lobos needed only one play for Mark Johnson to rush into the endzone for the 7-0 lead. Zack Decker was successful on all five extra points on the night. After kicking the ball to Ouachita, Longview would be able to pick off a Josh Strong pass to give the ball back to the Lobos.     

D'Marcus Miles only needed on play to find Tavrus Brown racing down the sidelines for teh Lobo touchdown.It was Miles's first passing touchdown of the season, a 49 yard touchdown pass. With a 14-0 lead not even three minutes into the game, the Lobo defense went abckt o work holding Ouachita to a three-and-out. After getting the ball back, the offense took over and ended their third straight drive by jumping into the endzone, this time an eight yard touchdown run by Miles.     

Up 21-0 not even halfway through the first quarter put Longview in full control of the rest of the game. After a Lobo fumble, the Longview defense only needed one place to force an Ouachita fumble and quickly jumped onto the ball. It did not take long for Longview to give the ball to Jazmon Moon for his own nine yard rushing touchdown for a 28-0 lead after one quarter of play. It was the first time Longview scored atleast 28 points in a single quarter since Longview's 29 point second quarter against Mesquite Horn last season.     

In the second quarter, Longview began substituting the second string into the game. Decker was able to add a 29 yard field goal midway through the quarter. Longview went into halftime with a 31-0 lead, their largest since Longview's 31-0 lead againist Lake Highlands last season.

Johnson rushed from one yard out for his third rushing touchdown of the year. Decker, with the extra point, made it a 38-0 lead for the Lobos.
