SOUTHLAKE — Round up the usual suspects. The mainstays of the Southlake Carroll offense shined once again as the Dragons dominated Keller 52-17 in a District 4-5A game Friday night at Dragon Stadium.
Running back A.J. Ezzard led the way, scoring five touchdowns for Carroll (5-0, 7-1). He rushed 21 times for 151 yards and four TDs, adding a fifth score on a 21-yard reception.
Dragons quarterback Ryan Agnew completed 31 of 35 passes for 307 yards and three TDs. Agnew’s favorite target was Luke Timian, who caught 13 passes for 134 yards and a touchdown. Keaton Duhon caught nine passes for 72 yards, while Parker Fentriss added a seven-yard TD reception.
Keller (1-4, 4-4) was outgained 567-274 in yardage and had almost as many penalties as first downs, 10 to 12. The Indians’ only sustained drive on offense ended in an interception at the Carroll 11.
The Dragons scored just 1:03 into the game. They recovered a Keller fumble on the game’s third play, which set up Ezzard’s scoring pass from Agnew.
Carroll scored even faster at the beginning of the second half, needing just 1:02. This time Ezzard scored on a 23-yard run, which capped a six-play, 70-yard drive and gave the Dragons a 38-14 lead.
Keller was behind 14-0 before the Indians got their initial first down and was behind 31-14 at halftime.
The Indians’ first-quarter highlight was an 11-yard interception return for a touchdown by sophomore defensive lineman Houston Miller. Miller started the play blasting up the middle, but he dropped off into the left flat to intercept a screen pass and scored untouched.
Keller’s bright moment in the second quarter was the 76-yard run by Brandon Boyser, which set up a one-yard touchdown plunge by Dalton Mills.
