The Dragon football team won its first game of the season Friday night over Arlington Martin, 37-14, advancing its record to 1-1. The effort was led by the offense, which totaled 565 yards on the night. Audricke Gaines accounted for 151 yards on the ground and two touchdowns.

Gaines put the Dragons on the board first with a 3-yard score within the first minute of the game. Jack Johansson followed with his first of three scores on the night just minutes later. He finished the game with 10 carries for 55 yards on the ground and a catch for seven yards. 

Meanwhile defensive back and First Financial Bank Player of the Week Robert Barnes made his first start at wide receiver and did not disappoint. Barnes accounted for six receptions for 153 yards. He also registered five tackles on defense and a forced fumble. Quarterback Mason Holmes went 15 of 28 for 320 yards.

Jacob Doddridge led the team in tackles with 12, including four for a loss. He also registered a sack and the team's only interception. John Miscoll added 11 tackles, while Jake Murphy and Zion Sales combined for four pass deflections. Mason Vlaanderen had the team's other forced fumble.

The Dragons face off against Rockwall on the road this Friday at 7:30 p.m. The Yellowjackets have yet to win a game this year.
