LONGVIEW — The Lufkin Panthers knew they would need a near flawless performance if they hoped to take down the eighth-ranked Longview Lobos. When the mistakes piled up and the vaunted Lobos’ ground game took over, the Panthers didn’t stand a chance.

Kaden Meredith and Markevin Haynes combined for 347 yards and 5 touchdowns as the Lobos coasted to a 41-5 win in Class 5A Division I Region II playoff action at Lobo Stadium Friday night.
