Last week's No. 1 and 2 teams each lost over the weekend, but in the end, it wasn't enough to drop either of them from the top two spots in this week's ETSN.fm East Texas Class 6A/5A poll.

Lufkin (2-1) remained No. 1 despite a 32-25 loss to River Ridge (La.) John Curtis on Saturday in Shreveport. The Panthers led in the fourth quarter, but ultimately, five turnovers cost the Panthers a chance to stay unbeaten on the season.

John Tyler also fell from the ranks of the unbeaten with a last-second 37-31 loss to crosstown rival Tyler Lee last Friday night. The Lions (2-1) held a 24-10 lead in the second half, but couldn't hold off the Red Raiders (1-2), who moved up one spot to No. 4.

Longview (1-2) picked up its first win of the year -- 19-13 victory over Monroe (La.) Neville -- to stay at No. 3 in this week's rankings.

Most of the top 10 are off this week as they prepare for the beginning of district play. Only Lee and No. 7 Texas High are in action this Friday night.
