Mansfield, Legacy and Summit will hit the gridiron Friday night, but Lake Ridge will have an unexpected evening off. After Timberview's opponent, Waco University, canceled their planned Friday night game, the Wolves picked up a game with Dripping Springs. The teams will meet at 7 p.m. Friday in Belton.
Waco and Waco University, who the Eagles and Wolves were to play, have been closed for the week due to COVID-19. Mansfield’s homecoming game on Nov. 6 was called in the fourth quarter after officials were notified that a Waco player had tested positive for the virus. The Waco player did not make the trip to Mansfield.
Mansfield (3-3, 2-1) dominated the game, winning 37-13.
The Tigers will tackle Waxahachie (2-4, 1-2) at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Vernon Newsom Stadium, 3700 E. Broad St.
Summit (3-2, 2-0) will host Colleyville Heritage (4-0, 3-0) at 7 p.m. Friday at R.L. Anderson Stadium, 1016 Magnolia St.
Legacy (2-3, 1-2) will travel to Burleson to take on Centennial (3-1, 2-0) at 7 p.m. Friday.
