Longview Clinches At Least Share Of District 15-5A Title With 49-6 Rout Of Sulphur Springs
SULPHUR SPRINGS -- Longview is running the table in District 15-5A action this season and clinched a share of the district crown on Friday night in similar fashion.
Behind a 400-plus yard ground attack, the Lobos (7-2) ran their district mark to 6-0 with a 49-6 win over Sulphur Springs.
Tylan Miller finished with 189 yards on the ground to lead the charge. Dezmond Chumley combined for three touchdowns, throwing for one and adding two more on the ground. Marquies Hunter added pair of scoring runs in the Lobos’ dominant win on the road.
While the offense found traction, the Lobo defense held a potent Sulphur Springs (5-4, 3-2) offense to one third-quarter touchdown and 261 total yards.
Jakoryian Walker had two interceptions and Keenan Madden added one as Longview held Sulphur Springs’ quarterback Larry Pryor to 7-of-15 passing for 51 yards. Pryor -- a Texas A&M commit -- notched the Wildcats’ lone touchdown on a 2-yard run. He finished with 68 rushing yards. Jaylon Hawkims, a sophomore, led Sulphur Springs with 93 on the ground.
Chumley notched the Lobos’ first two scores on runs of 8 and 10 yards before Hunter scored from 28 yards to give Longview a 21-0 lead at halftime.
Hunter scored again to open the third quarter to make it a four-score margin. Chumley connected with Emmanuel Gordon for a 22-yard scoring strike midway through the third quarter. Chumley finished with 115 passing yards -- 51 going to Antonio Carter on three receptions.
Pryor capped a long Sulphur Springs’ drive in the third quarter with a 2-yard run, and the Lobos blocked the ensuing point-after attempt to make it 35-6 heading into the fourth quarter.
D’Crayvan Polk added a 3-yard run and Dezmein Dennis capped the win with a 1-yard jaunt for the Lobos.
Longview closes the season at home against Hallsville, while Sulphur Springs travels to Marshall next Friday night.
