Tickets on sale Tuesday for Lufkin game

Tue Dec 4, 2007

Tickets go on sale Tuesday, Dec. 5 for the Lobos' state quarterfinal playoff game against the Lufkin Panthers. 

Athletic Director John King said tickets will be available from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday–Thursday and 8 a.m. to Noon on Friday at the Athletic Department offices. Pre-game ticket prices are $4 for students and $7 for adults and $10 at the stadium.

Kickoff is set for 2 p.m. at Homer Bryce Stadium, on the campus of Stephen F. Austin University in Nacogdoches.

Gates will open at noon on Saturday according to SFA Associate Athletic Director, Rob Meyers.

Longview residents have expressed some concern regarding parking at Homer Bryce Stadium because the last time Longview and Lufkin met at this venue they packed in close to 30,000 fans.

“Parking should not be a problem,” said Meyers. “The campus has grown a lot since the last time these two teams competed at SFA. We have added several new buildings which means additional parking lots and multiple parking garages that house more than 1,000 vehicles.”

Meyers pointed out some places Lobo fans could park while enjoying SFA’s campus facilities are at the Early Childhood Charter Campus on Raguet Street, located within walking distance of Homer Bryce Stadium, as well as parking garages at the corner of Raguet and East College and on Wilson Drive behind the Recreation Center. There is also stadium parking across from the William R Johnson Coliseum, but fans must be aware that some of that parking will be reserved for the Men’s Basketball game against Rice.

This will the 14th time in Lobo football program football history that the team has made it to the state quarterfinals and it will be the 10th playoff meeting between the Longview Lobos and the Lufkin Panthers.

“That’s the way football is supposed to be, East Texas meeting in the fourth round,” King said. “I’m thrilled for our kids and what they’ve been able to accomplish and I’m proud for Lufkin as well. Now, we’re going to meet up and it’ll be an East Texas shootout.”
