NORTH RICHLAND HILLS — Southlake Carroll quarterback Ryan Agnew and wide receiver Luke Timian were too much for Richland on Friday at Birdville ISD Fine Arts/Athletics Complex.
The two connected for four touchdown passes, and Agnew ran for another as the Dragons won easily 48-9 in a District 4-5A contest.
Carroll (3-0, 5-1) toughened up on defense in the second half, limiting Richland (1-2, 2-4) to just 42 yards. For the game, the Rebels had as many punts and penalties as they did first downs (10 each).
Agnew passed for 266 yards and rushed for 120 as the Dragons piled up 603 yards on offense. Three Carroll turnovers kept the score from being higher.
Agnew completed his first 11 passes of the game, throwing his first incompletion with just three minutes remaining in the first half. He immediately bounced back by finding Timian, who broke a tackle to turn a short pass into a 39-yard TD.
Agnew found Timian five times for 127 yards and three touchdowns in the first half. They ended the Dragons’ first drive of the game — 81 yards in nine plays and 2:35 — with a 21-yard touchdown. Timian took the ball away from a Richland defender on the play.
The duo ended the Dragons’ second drive that covered 78 yards in six plays with a 37-yard TD hookup.
Early in the third quarter, Agnew threw his fourth TD pass to Timian for a 34-9 lead.
The touchdown also gave Agnew a notable streak. From the start of Carroll’s game two weeks ago against Keller Central to Timian’s fourth TD catch, Agnew threw 54 passes in a little over 10 quarters. In that time, Agnew has had eight touchdowns to just eight incompletions.
Stephen Jackson led Richland with 81 yards rushing on 15 carries.
