Holmes' Season-best Outing Leads Dragons to Victory Over Lewisville

Oct 10, 2016 08:18AM ● By Kevin
Dragon quarterback Mason Holmes had his best game of the season on Friday night at Lewisville, tossing four touchdowns and committing zero turnovers. The senior completed 71 percent of his passes, going 20 for 28 while earning First Financial Bank Player of the Week honors!

In the end, Carroll came out on top, 49-7. Holmes' touchdown targets were Clayton Keyes, who caught two for 19 yards and a score; Jack Johansson, who grabbed two for 18 yards and a score; and Robert Barnes, who caught a team-high seven for 91 yards and two touchdowns.

Holmes also contributed to the ground game, adding 61 yards on three attempts to the Dragons' 335 total rushing yards. Audricke Gaines led the rushing game with an impressive 8.3 yards per attempt on 15 carries for 125 yards and a touchdown. Barnes added a score on a 22-yard rush. Will Bowers also rushed for a nine-yard touchdown. He also completed one pass for seven yards.

Carroll impressed on defense as well, holding the opponents to just one score all night. John Miscoll and Eric Spitler each led the team in tackles with 11 apiece - Spitler taking down the opponents five times for a loss in yardage. He also added a sack and applied pressure on the quarterback once. Miscoll forced one of two fumbles caused by the Dragons. R.J. Mickens forced the other, while also registering three tackles and knocking down a pass.

Southlake heads to Marcus on Friday in hopes of continuing its winning streak. The Dragons are now 5-1 on the season and have not lost a game since the opener against Tulsa Union. The Marauders could take the district lead over Southlake with a win as they stand at 4-2. The game kicks off at 7:30 p.m.
