SOUTHLAKE — Southlake Carroll dominated Keller Central in all facets of the game for a 59-3 homecoming victory at Dragon Stadium on Friday night.
Dragons quarterback Ryan Agnew was near perfect, connecting on 17 of 20 passes for 228 yards and two touchdowns; he also added four scores on the ground with 107 yards on 16 carries.
After going three-and-out to open the game, Carroll (3-1, 1-0 District 4-5A) scored on 10 of its next 12 possessions, while the defense forced Central three-and-out seven times on the night. Central (1-3, 0-1) struggled to move the ball, totaling just 150 yards of offense.
The Chargers managed only one first down in the second half.
Agnew spread the ball around, hitting six different receivers. Keaton Duhon had five catches for 65 yards while Chris Hogan had three for 65 yards and a score. Luke Timian added four receptions for 64 yards and Joe Heineman contributed four grabs for 61 yards.
Grant McFarlin had 101 yards rushing for Carroll, with the bulk coming on a 71-yard touchdown run that closed the scoring for the Dragons in the fourth quarter.
In the first half, the Dragons benefited from an average starting field position of midfield. Carroll’s five scoring drives in the first half totaled 47, 50, 56, 12 and 20 yards. Meanwhile, the Chargers average starting field position was their own 24.
A.J. Ezzard opened the scoring with a 2-yard run on Carroll’s second drive. Agnew was the next to hit paydirt, dashing in from 45 yards to cap a two-play 50-yard drive. Agnew then found Hogan on a 23-yard pass to make the score 21-0, still in the first quarter.
Central managed to get on the board in the second quarter when Hunter Morrow split the uprights from 31 yards out to make it 21-3.
