SOUTHLAKE — Southlake Carroll’s offense was simply too fast for Midland Lee.
The Dragons’ up-tempo offense and speedy dual-threat quarterback Ryan Agnew ran over the Rebels 63-14 on Friday night at Dragon Stadium.
Agnew rushed for 144 yards and four touchdowns and threw for 246 yards and three scores.
“We just wanted to get back on the field after that loss,” Agnew said, referring to last week’s 49-27 defeat against Allen. “We felt we were embarrassed last week and we just wanted to come out here and prove what we were all about.”
Agnew scored Carroll’s first touchdown on a 3-yard run around the left side of the line with six minutes left in the first quarter.
After a 7-yard A.J. Ezzard scoring run in the first quarter, Agnew scampered into the end zone again from 5 yards out.
His longest touchdown run went for 26 yards early in the second quarter. He scored again in the second quarter on another 3-yard run.
Sandwiched between those touchdown runs was a 31-yard touchdown pass to Luke Timian with 4:29 left in the half.
Carroll senior wideout Keaton Duhon highlighted the second-half scoring for the Dragons (1-1), pulling in two touchdown passes in the third quarter.
On his second, a 16-yard pass from Agnew, Duhon managed to reel in a low fade to the front right corner of the end zone in a diving effort in which helanded just inside the pylon.
Duhon finished as Carroll’s leading receiver with 99 yards and two touchdowns.
Carroll got unexpected production from backup running ack Lil’ Jordan Humphrey, who spelled starter A.J. Ezzard for 61 yards rushing and a touchdown in his first action for the Dragons’ varsity squad.
Humphrey scored his first varsity touchdown on a 2-yard rush after Carroll recovered a Lee fumble on the Rebels’ 8-yard line.
Lee (1-1) managed two scores in the game, the first on a 9-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Caden Coots to wide receiver Isaiah Johnson early in the second quarter.
