If you believe in Dragons then you’ll have no problem believing what took place Friday night at AT&T Stadium.  Down 17 points in the third quarter, Southlake Carroll clawed its way back to defeat Mansfield 38-31 in the 6A Division II Bi-district round of the playoffs.

After scoring only seven points in the first half, quarterback Ryan Agnew and the Dragon offense erupted for 31 points in the second half, including 24 points in the fourth quarter to ensure a Carroll victory.

Although he threw three interceptions, Dragon Pride Player of the Week Ryan Agnew continues to be cool under pressure. He again answered the call when the Dragons needed it most. In another highly competitive game he threw for a season high four touchdowns while completing 22 of 35 passes for 335 yards in the win.  Making big play after big play, Agnew led an 8-play, 65-yard, game-winning drive, which was capped off by a 31-yard touchdown pass to Tariq Gordon with just 13 remaining. Carroll Running back Lil’ Jordan Humphrey had another spectacular day accounting for 195-yards of total offense.  Humphrey finished the evening with 90 yards and a touchdown on the ground while also leading the team in receiving with 105 yards, including a 76-yard touchdown reception on a Ryan Agnew scramble that averted a Mansfield safety.  Senior 

 Parker Fentriss finished second on the team with five receptions for 98 yards and two touchdowns, while Gordon finished with three catches for 42 yards and the game winning touchdown. 

“Guys were asking each other, ‘What would you do for one more week?” said Carroll Captain Tariq Gordon.  “ We believed in each other and knew we had what it took to win the game in the clutch.”

After giving up 24 points in the first three quarters, the Dragon defense settled in holding a potent Mansfield offense to seven points in the fourth quarter.  Senior Andy Chelf led Southlake with 14 tackles, while his counterpart at the safety position Kevin Cramer not far behind with 12 tackles.

The Dragons meet Denton Guyer (10-1) in the area round of the playoffs Saturday night at AT&T stadium.  Kickoff begins at 8 p.m.
