With one quarter to play, and the Dragons trailing by a touchdown, Trinity quarterback Tyler Nattee went down with a leg injury, which sparked a series of events that would make Friday night's district matchup one of the most exciting of the season. Carroll quarterback Mason Holmes hit Zach Farrar on a 34-yard touchdown pass with just over 9 minutes to play in the game. From there, the hard-fought offensive battle ensued.

Trinity, ranked 12th by USA Today, put up 603 yards on the ground in the game. Ja'Ron Wilson carried the ball 31 times for 339 and three scores.

Within the span of about 6 minutes left in the game, the district rivals traded scores - one for Wilson, one for Shemar Coleman; one for DeJuan Garrett, one for Lil'Jordan Humphrey. Carroll's onside kick attempt failed with less than 2 minutes to go, effectively allowing Trinity to close out the game on a few opportune plays, including a facemask penalty on the Dragons. Trinity advanced to an undefeated 8-0 record, while Carroll fell to 5-2.

Holmes finished the day 24-for-36, 222 yards and three touchdowns; one each to Farrar (6 rec., 74 yards), Humphrey (10 rec., 92 yards) and Coleman (5 rec., 38 yards). Coleman, the Dragon Pride Player of the Week, added two scores on the ground in his 47-yard rushing game, while Humphrey rushed for 92 yards.

Barrett Buck led the defense with 11 tackles, 1 for a loss and two pass deflections. IV Seacat followed with 10 tackles and 1 for a loss.

The Dragons hope to rebound on the road Friday against 4-3 Colleyville Heritage at 7:30 p.m.
