LONGVIEW – With another total team effort, No. 4 Longview built a commanding first-quarter lead and rolled from there in a 63-3 thumping of the North Mesquite Stallions in District 11-6A on Friday at Lobo Stadium.

The Lobos, who moved to 8-0 on the season and 4-0 in district play and clinched a postseason spot as a result, had two touchdowns through the air, two more on the ground and a safety to build a 29-0 lead after the first stanza, a margin that blew up to 50-0 at intermission on the way to the 60-point win.

Haynes King had three passing touchdowns on tosses of 67, 14 and seven yards and finished an efficient 8-of-11 for 172 yards. Kamden Perry, Kaden Kearbey and Keilyn Williams were on the receiving end of those scoring strikes.

Jessie Anderson blasted a pair of touchdown runs to the tune of three and 16 yards, leading a Lobo rushing attack that saw six different players score on the night.

Longview forced two fumbles in the win, turning both Stallions (3-4, 1-3) miscues into points.

King connected with Kearbey and Williams on the first two Lobo drives before back-to-back scampers from Anderson and a safety off a punt in North Mesquite's end zone made it 29-0l in the first quarter.

King and Perry connected to start the second, which was rounded out by scores from Kevin Jones and Jordan Malone.

Tyler Lee hosts the Lobos next.
