It was yet another complete effort on both sides of the ball for the Carroll Dragons on Friday night, propelling themselves to the playoffs in a 56-7 victory over L.D. Bell. Feature back Lil'Jordan Humphrey led the Dragons in the scoring effort with 103 yards and three touchdowns on the ground and adding 67 yards in the air on two receptions.

Carroll posted 22 first downs in the contest and gained 604 yards of total offense. The defense held the opponent to just five first downs and 151 yards. The sole score for Bell came at the end of the third quarter.

The Dragons take on Cedar Hill in the opening round of the Class 6A Division II playoffs on Friday at 7:30 p.m. That will be a home game for Carroll.
