LONGVIEW -- Less than one year ago, longtime rivals Lufkin and Longview squared off in a playoff game for the ages. It was decided in the final minute on a successful Lobos two-point conversion.

Friday night's season opener at Lobo Stadium had similar overtones, except Lufkin had the chance to exact revenge this time around after a touchdown brought the Panthers to within a point with less than a minute remaining.

But instead of going for two and the win, like Longview did last November in its bi-district victory, Lufkin opted to attempt a tying extra point. Only, the Lobos again had fate on their side.

Longview senior Ameron Dean blocked Rodrigo Molina's PAT, giving the Lobos a thrilling 21-20 win -- their second one-point victory in as many meetings against arch-rival Lufkin.

The Lufkin Panthers' 6-5 record in 2014 doesn't tell the whole story. The five losses came by a combined 20 points, which made the Pack's season a tad misleading.

Lufkin, which graduated the majority of its nucleus from a season ago, will be young this season. But the nonetheless, the Panthers check in at No. 4 in ETSN.fm's preseason Class 6A/5A poll.
