Longview scored 17 unanswered points to beat West Monroe, 17-7, in a highly anticipated showdown between border states in Shreveport. 

Longview, coming off of a 6A title in Texas, fell behind early to an opportunistic Rebel defense. West Monroe took advantage of a first quarter Longview fumble on the Lobos' own 16-yard line. 

Three plays later Cayden Pierce rumbled into the end zone for the Rebels first score. 

Haynes King and the Lobos offense immediately answered and climbed to a 17-7 lead at halftime. 

Neither team could score in the second half. 

The Rebels held the Lobos to 250 yards. No. 1 dual threat quarterback and Texas A&M commit King completed 8-of-18 passes for 78 yards and a score. 

Derome Williams led the Rebels on the ground with 87 yards on 18 carries. 

West Monroe falls to 2-1 on the season and will host Evangel Friday.
