It didn't take long for Southlake Carroll's offense to get the ball rolling on Friday night, opening with a touchdown with quadruple digits still on the clock in the first quarter, en route to a 52-14 victory over Robert E. Lee High School on Friday night. The score came from Mason Holmes-Lil' Jordan Humprhey connection on a fade route, which was the first of four scores for the Dragons' feature back.

 Humprhey ended up rushing for 131 yards in the game, pounding it in to the endzone once on the ground, while catching 10 passes for 153 yards and three touchdowns.

After the first score, the Dragon defense stopped the Rebels on third down with a Grant McFarlin sack. On the ensuing drive, Holmes tossed his second touchdown to Zach Farrar on a 16-yard fade. Farrar had two scores on the night with four total receptions for 58 yards.

After another strong hold on defense, the Dragons scored again on a 32-yard field goal by Kole Ramage, putting Carroll up 17-0 with just over 2 minutes to go in the first quarter. Midland responded with one of its only two scores of the day when halfback Ashton Akbar took the ball to the house on a 78-yard run with 2:05 remaining in the quarter.

In the second, Humprhey scored his second to put Carroll up 24-7. After equal exchanges by both units, the Dragons took the field once again before the half's conclusion for yet another scoring drive; this one with an all-too-familiar, Holmes-Humphrey connection with 13 seconds to go. Humprhrey's third touchdown of the night put Carroll up 31-7.

The momentum carried into the second half, and Carroll continued to score, dwindling away Lee's chances of a comeback.

 Holmes the Dragon Pride Player of the Week finished the day with an impressive 70 percent completion rate on 33 passing attempts. He threw for 311 yards and an impressive five touchdowns. Other offensive statistics to note include Shemar Coleman's 8 receptions for 87 yards.

The defense was led by safety Robert Barnes, the recent Oklahoma commit had 11 tackles. McFarlin followed with 8 tackles (two for loss) and a sack. Barrett Buck registered 7 tackles and continued to take the air out of the opponents passing game with two passes knocked down.

The Dragons have the week off in preparation for a 7:30 p.m. non-conference, road game against undefeated Abilene on Sept. 25.
