Week 5 Thursday roundup: The Colony now 5-0 behind Byran Hammond's 3 TDs
The Colony 20, Frisco 14
FRISCO — As his team’s lone offensive threat and with the game in the balance, there wasn’t much of a question at Frisco ISD Memorial Stadium where the ball was going.
Yet, time and again, The Colony’s Bryan Hammond made something happen.
The senior running back scored on a 22-yard touchdown run with 3:31 remaining in the fourth quarter, his third touchdown run of the game, as The Colony stayed unbeaten with a 20-14 win over Frisco.
“We’re going to feed 3 [Hammond],” The Colony coach Rudy Rangel said. “We are going to live and die by him. And we lived tonight with him.”
With the win, The Colony (5-0, 2-0 in District 9-4A) took a huge step to qualifying for a playoff berth for the first time since 2002.
Hammond rushed 30 times for 254 yards, his fifth 150-yard performance of the season and 86 percent of The Colony’s production on the night.
Frisco (3-2, 1-1) answered an earlier fourth-quarter score by Hammond with a touchdown drive of its own as Rasheed Kilpatrick scored on a 10-yard sweep with 6:07 remaining to tie the score, 14-14.
But Hammond kept running.
“We just tried to wear the defense down during the game,” Hammond said. “We knew we were the better-conditioned team, and we were going to pull it out in the fourth quarter.”
Paul Lewis ended Frisco’s hopes with an interception at midfield with less than three minutes remaining, forced off of quarterback pressure by J.V. call-up Jordan Higashida.
Southlake Carroll 77, Keller Timber Creek 6
Ryan Agnew threw for 255 yards and two scores and added 44 yards rushing and two more scores as Southlake Carroll’s offense amassed 569 yards.

Ezzard added 117 yards on 14 carries and three scores, and Grant McFarlin picked up 41 yards on 10 carries and two scores in the fourth quarter.

Centennial running back Kamari Burnett scored a 1-yard run and rushed for 111 yards.
