Lufkin football

Lufkin’s Ja’Lynn Polk celebrates a play while players on both teams scramble for the ball during non-district football action at Dragon Stadium Friday night. Lufkin took a 44-0 win.

An opening-night loss left the Lufkin Panthers hungry to find the win column when they headed to Nacogdoches on Friday night.

A hard-hitting defense wasn’t satisfied with a simple win. Instead they dominated from the opening kickoff to the final whistle in posting a shutout, the team’s third since the beginning of last season.
