Mansfield Legacy quarterback Terrance Ivery out for the season with ankle fracture
Mansfield Legacy quarterback Terrance Ivery will miss the remainder of the football season with a broken fibula in his ankle.
Ivery was carted from the field in the second quarter of Legacy's area-round game against McKinney North, pulled down during a run. The senior, who entered the game with 1,243 rushing yards, had five carries for 54 yards and a touchdown in the game before the injury.
Legacy surrendered a 28-point first-quarter lead against McKinney North, needing a second-half rally for a 70-49 win. Junior quarterback Sheldon Hogan rushed for 140 yards and a score in Ivery's absence.
It's unclear whether Legacy (10-2) will get starting running back Kijana Amous back for its third-round match-up against Highland Park (11-1). Amous didn't suit up against McKinney North, suffering an ankle injury in the second half of Legacy's bi-district win against Tyler John Tyler. His replacement, Kenton Mayberry, carried the ball 37 times for 340 yards and six touchdowns.
"It was unbelievable," Legacy coach Chris Melson said after the game. "Sheldon gets reps every day and we knew he was a good player. Mayberry is a really good running back and we're blessed to have him."
The Highland Park/Legacy game will be 12:30 p.m. Friday at AT&T Stadium.
