Longview Rolls To Third Consecutive Win With 56-7 Rout Of Greenville
LONGVIEW -- Longview scored on five of its first six possessions Friday night, rolling to a dominant 56-7 win over Greenville to move to 2-0 in District 15-5A action.
The win -- the Lobos’ third-straight -- was set up by a 400-plus yard offensive output and finished with a defensive effort that held Greenville (3-2, 1-1) to 104 yards of total offense.
Four Lobo running backs notched touchdowns in the win with Tylan Miller and D’Crayvan Polk each finding the end zone twice. Miller had scoring scampers of 4 and 25 yards, while Polk found the end zone from 8 and 6 yards away. Traveion Webster had a team-high 85 rushing yards with a 6-yard score. Marquies Hunter added 18 yards on the ground and a 1-yard score.
In the air, senior quarterback Dezmond Chumley went 8 of 12 for 100 yards -- all coming well before halftime. He had a 20-yard scoring strike to Antonio Carter, who hauled in seven catches for 67 yards for the Lobos (3-2, 2-0).
Miller’s pair of touchdowns sandwiched a 45-yard interception return from Ameron Dean to give Longview a 21-0 lead at the two-minute mark in the first quarter. Chumley and Carter connected in the final seconds to push that margin to 28-0.
Hunter added his 1-yard score and Polk scored on back-to-back possessions to give the Lobos a commanding 49-0 lead at halftime.
Greenville got on the board on a 74-yard scoring pass from quarterback Jacob Jarvis to D’Erren Wilson, who came into the night averaging more than 30 yards per catch.
Websters’ score came in the opening minute of the fourth quarter to complete the 56-7 win for the Lobos, who host Marshall next week. Greenville visits Sulphur Springs.
