LUFKIN - FIRST PART OF ARTICLE MISSING.
Charles Gordon, guard and acting captain, came through with three good kicks for extra appoints out of four tries.
Longview kicked off to Lufkin who was forced to punt back to the Loboes on their own 41-yard stripe. Right here is where the first Longview march started when Jack Lyon, who played the best game of his career, plunged his way to three consecutive first downs. Rivers then shot a pass over to the goal to Bivins and Longview was away to a fourth conference victory.
Taking the next kickoff, the Panthers staged a 70-yard march for a touchdown that terminated with Runnells plunged over from the four-yard line.
A blocked punt by Earl Harper, Longview end, gave the Loboes another two points where a Lufkin player recovered the leather behind his own goal line. This placed the score at 8-6.
Coming right back the Loboes punted after taking the next kick and Henderson recovered when D. Runnels fumbled as the first period ended. Lyon started whaling away at the line and soon plunged the ball over to give the Loboes a lead of 15 to 6, when Gordon booted the goal.
Later in the second period, Lufkin staged another of numerous marched that carried the oval to the Longview eight-yard ribbon. On fourth down, Runnells elected to pass into a flat zone, Jimmy Whitten reached up, took the ball and was away for a 100-yard dash for a touchdown, the longest run seen on a Longview gridiron in years.
Refusing to give up under the 22-6 score, the visitors opened another drive in the third period for 68 yards, and scored when Kellow took in a pass over the goal line after it had bounced off the hand of a Longview athlete. This placed the score at 22-12.
In the fourth quarter the final touchdown was marked up when Whitten again gathered in a flat zone pass and scampered 70 yards for a touchdown, crossing the goal line laughing at his pursuers.
O.E. Runnells had a capable assistant in his younger brother, D. Runnells, who was a constant threat and alternated with his huskier brother in ripping the Longview line to threads on the brilliant long marches down the field.
