Mansfield ISD’s football teams opened the new season with three victories in games that were adjusted because of North Texas’ intense heat.

Mansfield, Summit and Timberview recorded wins while Lake Ridge and Legacy opened with losses.

Kickoff times were pushed back a half-hour for all games, water breaks were added during stoppages in play and misting fans were placed along the sidelines to keep players, coaches and other personnel safe as temperatures remained in the high 90s.

Also Thursday, Legacy shut out Richland in the second half at R.L. Anderson Stadium, but the Broncos were unable to overcome the Royals in a 23-21 loss.
