Lions lose game that never was

Mark Warde

Friday’s anticipated district showdown between Lufkin and Ennis, after being delayed over three hours by lightning, was decided by a coin toss. Todd Quick, the visiting head coach, called “tails” correctly and his Panthers won the game, 2-0, without even getting wet.

The victorious flick of the wrist, which was done by the head official, took place in a meeting between representatives of the two schools; district superintendents – Ennis’ Dr. John Chapman, III, and Lufkins’ Dr. LaTonya Goffney; high school principals – Ennis’ David Averett and Lufkins Kurt Stephens; and athletic directors – Ennis’ Jack Alvarez and Quick, from Lufkin, the latter two also serving as head football coaches.
