Mansfield Legacy takes 5-5A title with win over Timberview

Mansfield Legacy goalkeeper Blake Brown hunched over in a bit of agony late in the first half of the Broncos' District 5-5A finale with Mansfield Timberview on Friday.  It was a simple sign of what happens when, for the betterment of the team, one shows little regard for his body .

Brown, who will play at Yale next year, will take a few aches and pains with him into the weekend due to the fashion in which he protected Legacy's goal at Newsom Stadium. But he'll do so as a district champion after a 5-0 Broncos victory.

Brown came through with several clutch saves off Timberview free kicks and received help with a couple of Andrew Bach goals to get Legacy the win it needed to keep the title away from Midlothian, which entered Friday one point behind.

"We definitely saw teams be aggressive around him," Legacy coach Aaron Cottrell said. "He's arguably the best player in our district and he was kind of a target point for a lot of teams."

Legacy (15-3-3, 10-2-2), which will likely face Euless Trinity in the first round of the playoffs, controlled the tempo early, but it was Timberview that supplied the first true scoring opportunity with a free kick five minutes in. Brown caught the ball inches in front of the goal and had to extend the ball outward to keep it from crossing the goal line.

That was Timberview's last chance for a while. Legacy, meanwhile, capitalized on one of its chances at the 30:42 mark, when Bach scooted a right-footed shot into the back of the left corner.  Legacy put the game out of reach at the 21:53 mark. Joseph Primavera began the play with a throwin from 40 yards out, which was headed back toward the goal by Cody Sherwood. His blind pass found Josh Rodriguez, who alertly headed the ball to a Nathaniel Martinez who headed home for a 3-0 lead.
