Ryan offense comes alive, defense does its thing in win over Longview (Denton RC)

MESQUITE — When Ryan and Longview met back in Week 1, Ryan used its running game to power past the Lobos for an easy win. In Friday’s rematch, Longview committed to stopping the run — betting that Ryan couldn’t throw the ball.
The postseason dare didn’t work.
Khalon Davis threw for 239 yards and three touchdowns and Texas commit Austin Jordan racked up 108 receiving yards and two scores as Ryan beat Longview 37-33 in a Class 5A Division I Region II semifinal game at Mesquite Memorial Stadium.
