Dragons Shoot Down Cowboys

If there’s one thing we’ve learned about the Dragons so far this season, it’s that no moment is too big for Hal Wasson’s gritty ball club.  After two dominating wins over West Texas opponents, the Dragons passed another huge test, narrowly defeating bitter rival Coppell 28-24 in the 7-6A district opener.

With five games already in the books this season, Southlake Carroll’s late game execution has been nothing less than spectacular, as Carroll’s offense has found ways to get in the end zone when it mattered most. Manufacturing another late game scoring drive, Ryan Agnew once again looked calm, cool and collected when other quarterbacks may have folded under the pressure.

On the late-game 10 play drive capped off by Li’l Jordan Humphrey’s 1-yard touchdown run Agnew said, “It came down to driving down the field with two minutes and change and it really didn’t phase us. Our offense is capable of scoring at any time, it doesn’t really matter the situation, we just had to trust each other and do what we are capable of.”

After starting the season with several injuries to the offensive line, the big guys up front have made tremendous strides as key members of the Dragons front five have returned at different parts of the season opening up huge holes for Humphrey who is averaging more than 7 yards per carry. The junior running back topped 100 yards for the fourth straight game with 116 yards and two touchdowns on 20 carries. 

After leaving the game late in the first half of last week’s contest against Abilene, Ryan Agnew returned with one of his better outings for the green and white, completing 27 of his 34 passes for 291 yards and a touchdown.  Senior Parker Fentriss led all receivers with nine catches for 135 yards and score, while running back Grant McFarlin provided Carroll’s only other offensive touchdown.   

Tim Wasson’s defense struggled mightily against the run surrendering 355 yards on 50 carries. At the heart of it all was Coppell’s all-everything running back Charles West, the defense stepped up when it mattered most only allowing 24 points to a Coppell offense that has averaged 36 points per game.  Senior linebacker Clark Parr was the Dragon Pride Player of the week.  He had a monster game, leading the Dragons with 21 tackles, while Purdue commit Andy Chelf finished second on the team with 11.   

The Dragons travel to Birdville ISD next week to take on district foe Richland (3-3).  Kickoff begins Friday night at 7:30 p.m.
