Mansfield Legacy, despite losing its starting quarterback on the last play of the first half, dominated the second half in a convincing 42-10 victory over Frisco Wakeland in a Class 5A Division I regional playoff Friday at Ford Center at the Star. Legacy will play Highland Park (11-2) at 5:30 p.m. next Friday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington in the state quarterfinals.

Catalon completed all six of his passing attempts for 61 yards and a TD, plus rushed three times for 99 yards. Daniel Manning replaced Catalon and completed 6 of 10 passes and threw a 5-yard TD pass to Trenton McDonald. McDonald punted for the Broncos, caught four passes for 32 yards, gained 52 yards on his only carry and added a kickoff return TD of 102 yards. Jalen Catalon led the Broncos’ defense with two interceptions.
