Lingleville racked up all kinds of offense, but couldn't keep up with playoff regular Blackwell on the scoreboard Friday night.
The Cardinals (2-1) amassed 535 yards to Blackwell's 487, but dug themselves a 52-22 hole in the first half and eventually lost 88-32.
It was Lingleville's first loss under head coach Darrell Wallace.
"Our boys showed a lot of heart and character. Blackwell is a very good, well-coached team," Wallace said. "There will be several positive points as well as coaching points that will come from this game."
Robert VanKranenburg remained unstoppable on the ground with 204 yards and four touchdowns. The senior spread back also passed for 160 yards and a TD, while Tim Griffen passed for 40 yards and a score. Ruperto Huerta led the LHS receivers with 71 yards and a TD.
VanKranenburg and Griffen also paced the defense, making 15 tackles and 14, respectively.
Lingleville entertains Granbury Cornerstone of the Texas Christian Athletic League at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
